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 pdf catalogue of the show is available upon request by writing to the galerie: galerie@urbanspree.com

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.



Johannes Mundinger completes the first Urban Spree mural of 2016

As part of his upcoming solo show ‘Unterm Nebel’ at Urban Spree Galerie (opening on March 4th, 2016), Berlin based street artist Johannes Mundinger completed the Urban Spree Artist Wall in February 2016. The wall becomes the first visible part of the exhibition, introducing the main theme of the show, the exploration of early childhood’s first and long forgotten memories, .
