Opening of Mik Shida: “A Conduit Order” on 28.06

Urban Spree Galerie presents “A Conduit Order”, the first solo show in Germany of the Australian visual artist and muralist Mik Shida. The exhibition will open in our Berlin galerie on Thursday, June 28th 2018, starting at 19:00.

Mik Shida was invited to Berlin by Urban Spree for a 2-month Art Residency which culminates into a presentation of a full new body of works, including large format paintings, and installations.

Shida’s paintings are shamanic “tableaux vivants” in which spiritual, ritualistic and organic elements coalesce, where temporality is transient, boundaries and space indistinct, where portals, alternative dimensions, spells and energy fields abound.

Spirits and movement are the materia prima of Shida’s oeuvre. The artist is a vessel, a conduit, through which sprits awaken, arise, and finally materialize within the paintings, within those transient spaces where the artist is allowed to conduct the dance, and is in turn being directed by the creations his paintings have summoned.

We can also view and understand Shida’s murals as spiritual beacons, large outdoor gateways meant to create an intercession with spirits.

 

Shida (born 1990) is an Australian multidisciplinary artist best known for his large scale mural work. Shida’s practice encompasses video, publishing, public works and murals.

 

“Shida explores the relationship between Ritual, Sexuality and Love. Psychedelic entities are entwined in a ceremonial act transcending the bounds of known reality. Shida works like an ancient shaman with each works being in essence an invocation, an energetic manifestation, a prayer to joy.” (Wikipedia)

In parallel to Shida’s presentation of works in our main galerie space, Urban Spree invites Knarf, Fresh Max and Mafia Tabak for a pop up exhibition in our “Ecke”.

Mafia Tabak x Urban Spree release a new t-shirt

Mafia Tabak has designed a limited edition t-shirt for the Urban Spree Artist Series 2016.

p1010406-copie

Mafia Tabak is a young austrian graffiti and urban artist hailing from Vienna. Member of the Irga Irga Crew together with Knarf, Mik Shida, and Fresh Max, his painting and murals are explicit references to tv series, cartoons, animes, video games, software, remixes, photoshop, italo-disco etc…

His graffiti style is semi-abstract, with partially erased letters, blur lines, flowers and palm trees, definitively fresh. Each year, the tour embarks on a drinking and painting binge across Europe and publish a zine called “Wandblatt”.

The t-shirt is available in the Urban Spree webstore here and in our Berlin shop.



Magic Life: A Group Show

For our last show of 2015, we have crafted a group show featuring some of the best free-spirited painting talents in european contemporary urban arts.

‘Magic Life’ unites under one roof the magic wizards of Vienna, aka the Irga Irga Crew (Mik Shida, Fresh Max, Mafia_Tabak and Knarf), the Western Germany spirits of Nartur Kunstgruppe (Henning Bischof, Nils Leimkühler, Moritz Neuhoff und Stefan Wiesnau) and our free electron Resident Artist Johannes Mundinger.

All the 9 invited artists are painters, using walls to express their energy and talent with scale, and are characterized by free brush strokes, extreme free flow, disdain of conveniences, and abstracted graffiti.

The exhibition will open on Saturday 24.10.2015 and will run until 27.11.2015.

Please refer to the Galerie page here for more info about the show. Please request the catalogue of the show to galerie@urbanspree.com
