We found – 18 articles for Look The Weird

Look (The Weird/Peachbeach) x Low Bros

Painted near the back garden of Urban Spree in the Astra/Suicide Club passageway, and most likely to be seen by partygoers getting out from Suicide Circus in the early morning hours, ‘Hangover’s Hot Summer Nights’ is a collaborative piece between Look (Peachbeach/The Weird) and the Low Bros realized in June 2013.

The other half of Peachbeach, Vidam, was in the meantime sketching his piece with Rylsee, a mural that was  painted in the next few days in the Urban Spree Artist Wall (covered here).

Lars Wunderlich: “What Are We Looking For?” Solo Show Opening

Urban Spree Galerie presents “What Are We Looking For?”, a solo show of new works by Berlin-based visual artist Lars Wunderlich a.k.a. “Look the Weird”.

The exhibition will kick off during Gallery Weekend Berlin with an Opening on Friday, April 26th, 2019 from 18:30 in presence of the artist.

The exhibition is the outcome of a 3-month Art Residency at Urban Spree.

What Are We Looking For?” is a vertiginous exploration of our tech-dominated and image-centric world. Our global course to an endless progress, always more distant from the natural order, over-leveraging our resources, using ever-expanding technology to achieve a deeper exploration and understanding. But what are we really looking for? And do we understand better?

In this conceptual journey which is an acute exploration of modernity, Lars Wunderlich crafts and paints visual collages, replicates portraits generated by algorithms, and juxtaposes different time elements which generate collisions, distortions and glitches, to better highlight the unreal nature of those representations and the danger thereof.

His paintings bear some similarities with the “New Leipzig School”, albeit with technology at the core, and aesthetics boosted by Artificial Intelligence and modern faux-semblants. They are representations of non-existing representations, real but fake, distorted, whether by time, space, speed, or truth. A perpetual collision of images.

Lars Wunderlich (b. 1981 in Neubrandenburg, GDR) is a German post-graffiti artist, member of the 9-member street art crew “The Weird” (Nychos, Low Bros, DXTR, Vidam…) under the moniker “Look the Weird”.

Besides spraypainting/wallpainting and graphic design, Lars is an accomplished painter. “What are we looking for?” is his first solo exhibition with Urban Spree Galerie.

Lars Wunderlich: What Are We Looking For?

Urban Spree Galerie presents “What Are We Looking For?“, a solo show of new works by Berlin-based visual artist Lars Wunderlich.

What Are We Looking For?” is a vertiginous exploration of our tech-dominated and image-centric world. Our global course to an endless progress, always more distant from the natural order, over-leveraging our resources, using ever-expanding technology to achieve a deeper exploration and understanding. But what are we really looking for? And do we understand better?

In this conceptual journey which is an acute exploration of modernity, Lars Wunderlich crafts and paints visual collages, replicates portraits generated by algorithms, integrates economic cycles, and juxtaposes different time elements which generate collisions, distortions and glitches, to better highlight the unreal nature of those representations and the danger thereof.

His paintings bear some similarities with the “New Leipzig School”, albeit with technology at the core, and aesthetics boosted by Artificial Intelligence and modern faux-semblants. They are representations of non-existing representations, real but fake, distorted, whether by time, space, speed, or truth. A perpetual collision of images.

Urban Spree Galerie at Urvanity Art Fair

Urban Spree Galerie will participate to the 3rd Edition of Urvanity Art (28.02-03-03.2019) at COAM in the center of Madrid.

The fair is dedicated to urban contemporary arts and for its first participation to a Spanish art fair, the gallery has designed on 60 sqm a program with 9 artists, mainly based or linked to Berlin, as well as a solo show of works from Hendrik Czakainski

As for the graffiti part, we are showing photographic works from Martha Cooper/1UP of the acclaimed series “One Week with 1UP”, whose exhibition about the Berlin-based graffiti vandal crew was created at Urban Spree in May 2018 and toured worldwide ever since.

Cpt_Olf is joining the roster as well with an iconic image about the Berlin Kidz/Os Cururu.

Bisco Smith (NYC) and Sicoer (Krakow) will be showing  their calligraffiti/handstyle skills, both on canvases as well as on paper, through a series of medium-sized inks.

EVOL is a German artist renowned for his detailed stencils on cardboard, his large installations, and his outdoor works on electric boxes, depicting Berlin cityscapes and houses, Plattenbau, and the constant evolution and fragility of the metropolis.

We will also be showing new works on paper from Marion Jdanoff (the half of of French duo Palefroi) and from Victor Ash, adding some portraits painted by Anthony Lister under the influence of Picasso during his Berlin residency at Urban Spree in September 2018.

Last but not the least, we will introduce 3 new paintings from Lars Wunderlich (a.k.a. Look The Weird) as a preview to his upcoming solo show with the gallery in April 2019.

Please contact the gallery ahead of the fair with any questions or requests you may have.

►►► Paul Arámbula
After bringing the keyboard across the long ocean, taking long walks, and working long nights in the middle of the sometimes long faces, Paul has written (long) songs about familiar strangers, saying a lot of nothing, forcing the easy life, and loving to hate that you are them. Planted amongst the improvised finger mess of keys are songs from the bedroom-pop album “A Bit of Both” as well as some new unreleased tracks.
