“Oh Sh…”: 2nd Print in the “Straight outta Lockdown” Mode 2 series

“Straight outta Lockdown / The Freedom Prints” is a series of vintage Mode 2 prints (from the mid 2000s to the early 2010s), hand-painted or hand-sprayed in 2020, and re-numbered in very limited runs.

The second print of the series is called “Oh Sh…”, originally produced in 2009 but never released owing to some specks of alien colors spotted on most prints while signing them. Mode 2 decided subsequently to call off the run and keep only the good prints for future use.

11 years later, the message conveyed by the print couldn’t actually be more acute, in a news ecosystem battered down by fake news, outright lies, and state violence.

The prints have been reconfigured in a 40-print run, all hand-sprayed with 3 different colors matching the original tones (gray, red, white), signed and numbered by Mode 2.

“Oh Sh…” One of three series of vintage prints released by @urban_spree ; a 3-colour silkscreen print, customised and renumbered as an edition of 40. . Back in 2006, I started subscribing to @mondediplo , a monthly French newspaper part-owned by its subscribers, editorially more independent and impartial than most. I rarely finish all articles during busy months, as each reads like a university thesis in its complexity; bringing historical, cultural and geopolitical context to the saturation of 24/7/365 selected data parading as news today. . It's a depressing read at times, exposing and deconstructing the dysfunctions of our world; which is what inspired the original “Oh Sh…” drawing. I often wonder where would society be if many more people were less complacent and apathetic in the way they informed themselves on the world around them. It would greatly help in the crucial and polarising debates of today. . I only have a digital scan of the original drawing, as the A5 blackbook that it was in was stolen in Barcelona, January 2007, during the Bread & Butter trade show. . Ten of us sitting around a big table outside of a bar, and nobody saw a thing, when I went to the bathroom. NEVER leave people in charge of what is irreplacable for you. Thieves are SLICK over there! . In October that same year, I decided to release a print of it for my #party&bullshit show at @mahahardy 's DPMHI shop, for which I also did a painting on linen of the same visual. . I found far too many prints with tiny spots of pastel yellow on, when signing and numbering; so I pulled the series from the show, keeping only the good ones. They are now being re-released, after having been individually enhanced with grey, white and red spray-paint; the Belton black stock caps giving that “spittle” technique. . “Oh Sh…” is an apt metaphor of the shock of this pandemic, the protests sparked by the murder of George Floyd, and how governments use this to railroad in new measures, colluding with the deluge of lies and contradictions fed to us by once trustworthy news sources.    . #mode2official #mode2 #ohshit #vintageprint #customised #badnews #protests #breadandbutter

Mode2 and Urban Spree release “Never Too Late…”

10 years after its publication, we are happy to re-release the second edition of Mode2’s legendary book “Never Too Late…” in 2 different editions.

The book will be released exclusively on the Urban Spree webshop here on Friday April 3rd at 18:00 CET (Berlin time).

Originally published in 2008 in a 64-page hardcover version, the book sold out instantly. A second, revised softcover edition of 80 pages was commissioned in the wake but was never properly released.

Since it’s “Never Too Late…”, we are finally releasing the book for its 10th Anniversary Year.

To celebrate the return of the prodigal book, in addition to the regular trade edition, Mode2 has designed a Special Edition of 100 copies. Each of the 100 book covers has been spray-painted and each copy is signed and numbered.

Numbers 001-050 come with a screen-printed tee-shirt of the cover’s motive, printed in-house at Urban Spree (Earth Positive brand, organic, fair trade cotton) while numbers 051-100 will be only the signed and numbered edition of the book.

Opening of Anthony Lister’s exhibition “Sneaky Bit In”

Urban Spree Galerie presents “Sneaky Bit In“, a solo show by the Australian visual & street artist Anthony Lister. The Opening of the show will be on Friday, September 14th, 2018 in the presence of the artist.

Invited by Urban Spree as part of our Artist-in-Residence program, Lister spent 3 weeks at Urban Spree between August and September 2018 to create in situ a whole new body of large scale works, installations, media art, and a large mural.

For this residency project, Lister incorporated a large palette of references stemming from cubism, Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” and “Guernica“, Alejandro Jodorowski’s “The Holy Montain“, African masks, religion, divination and tarot, Aboriginal trans women, and direct references to Damien Hirst.

Lister’s outdoor mural at Urban Spree is a variation and alternate narrative on the theme of the main painting of the exhibition, in a style reminiscent of Egon Schiele and incorporating elements of Picasso’s Guernica. The wall was executed with a 6m long extension pole, and signed with a paint-filled fire extinguisher.

Anthony Lister (b. 1979 in Brisbane) is a contemporary Australian-born painter and installation artist, best known for his merging of “high” and “low” cultural imagery. Particularly well known as a street artist, Lister is considered amongst the best in the field with graffiti art legend Banksy even commenting that Lister appears to piss great art in his sleep.

He studied at the Griffith Queensland College of Art and was further educated under mentor Max Gimblett in New York City. Lister helped pioneer the street art movement in his home city as a teenager and is considered Australia’s premier street artist.

Lister employs multiple media including charcoal, acrylic, spray paint, oil pastels to create his scrawling, figurative style.

Lister has exhibited nationally and internationally including at the Lazarides Gallery in London, Underdogs Gallery in Lisbon, New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles, Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami, Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York, Olsen Gallery in Sydney, Black Art Projects in Melbourne, Fireworks Gallery in Brisbane, and Allouche Gallery in New York City.

Lister currently lives and works between Sydney and New York City.
