Tavar Zawacki completes “Pulse” Mural at Urban Spree

Tavar Zawacki (ABOVE) completed the “Pulse” mural at Urban Spree on the occasion of his solo show “Metamorphosis”, on view until 08.10.2017 at Urban Spree Galerie.

The “Pulse” motive is part of the exhibition as a 180 x 240 cm original canvas and as well as a set of screen prints.

The wall reproduces the “Pulse” pattern two times with one half-arrow on the top left-hand side and a right half-arrow on the bottom right-hand side pointing downwards. Tavar created a very effective op-art outdoor piece, with 3D effects and optical illusions, notably in the middle of the piece.



Tavar Zavacki New Mural in Sacramento

Urban Spree Resident Artist Tavar Zawacki (aka Above) participated in August 2017 to the Wide Open Walls Mural Festival in Sacramento, California.

On this occasion, he painted a large mural downtown entitled “Metamorphosis #2“.

This motive stems from a new body of large scale works on canvas which will be presented for the first time at Urban Spree Galerie from 07.09.2017 to 08.10.2017.

The solo show “Metamorphosis” will display only large formats and marks a clear new direction for the artist.

In addition to the exhibition, Urban Spree Books will publish “Metamorphosis“, a 168-page monograph retracing the latest works and murals of the artist.

Last but not the least, a screen print set of 2 prints will be released for the show in a standard black-and-white edition as well as a large silver and gold edition.

Metamorphosis #3 – Acrylic on Canvas – 300 cm x 200 cm – 2017

The brothers from Hamburg painted their iconic wolves, a recurrent motive of the duo throughout the past year, which gently catches the pale nordic winter light.

A video of the complete work-in-progress will be released soon by the London-based Spraying Bricks project.

Discussion: VandalCafe #9 "Murals"

*Vandal Café #9: Ist das Graffiti oder kann das weg?*  vandal9-gif

Ein Vandal Café über die steigende Zahl von Murals in der Stadt, ihre Geschichte, ihre Vereinnahmung und die Frage: Warum sollte man die nicht übermalen? Es gab in den letzten Jahren einen Boom an öffentlicher Fassadenmalerei in Berlin, Dresden und anderswo. Damit einher geht eine Vereinnahmung dieses Mediums für graffiti-ferne Zwecke wie Werbung, Stadt-Aufwertung oder schlicht als Anti-Graffiti-“Graffiti”. Allein in diesem Sommer ließ sich ein Schuhersteller ein halbes Dutzend Fassaden in Berlin für eine „Guerilla-Kampagne“ bemalen. Das wirft Fragen auf: Gibt es überhaupt noch interessante Murals?

Schuldet man den Mural-MalerInnen Respekt? Was soll das mit dem Denkmalschutz? Und überhaupt:Durfte Blu das einfach machen?

Zum Debattieren laden wir ein: Stéphane Bauer (Bethanien/Backjumps), Lake-Oner, Innerfields und außerdem Writer, Recht-auf-Stadt-AktivistInnen und natürlich alle Interessierten.

Zur Verunstaltungsreihe: Im Vandal Café präsentieren sich waschechte ExpertInnen und blutige Laien im Talkshow-Prinzip zu wechselnden Themen rund um Graffiti, Streetart und darüber hinaus. Eingeladen sind alle Interessierten, die einfach mal zuhören oder – noch viel besser – in der Diskussion mitmischen möchten. Der Eintritt ist kostenlos.
