“The pictures here highlight how artists have brought the creative activism of subversive graffiti into (or onto) these commercialised infrastructures of urban mobility. As trucks and vans move consumable goods of the elite urban economy around the city, they carry with them the viruses of activism. Like the New York subway trains in the 1970s, the graffiti trucks of Paris are a mobile gallery of graffiti and its affront to the sterile spaces of urban commodity movement.” – Dr. Oli Mould.

With a foreword by human geographer Dr. Oli Mould The Graffiti Trucks of Paris was published in March 2017 and featured in Huck Magazine, HERO Magazine and Tate Britain acquired a copy for its library collection.

Vandals, An Evening with Marc Vallée

Urban Spree Galerie invites you to an exhibition and talk with London-based documentary photographer Marc Vallée on the occasion of the release of his new zine Vandals and the City.

Vandals and the City Marc Vallee-2

With a forward by urban geographer Dr. Oliver Zanetti, Vandals and the City is Marc’s eighth self-published zine and documents a London graffiti crew.

Marc is best known for exploring the tension between public and private space in the context of contemporary youth culture.  His work is visually polemic and rejects the notion of impartiality.  Graffiti, defensible architecture, skateboarding and political dissent are just some of the subjects he has documented over a career of more then twenty years.
