Starting this Saturday at noon, Urban Spree is hosting a screenprint exhibition curated by Mother Drucker‘s Dolly Demoratti. A few days ago, Dolly installed her new screenprint studio in the first floor of the Urban Spree Ateliers. To celebrate the opening of the studio, we are inviting all street art and screenprints’ fans to discover Dolly’s atelier and her wonderful old steel & glass machines. In addition, a pop up store featuring a selection of hand-pulled Dolly’s silk screenprints will be disseminated in the abandoned rooms of Urban Spree.
Works by Nomad, Anton Unai, SuperBlast, Elmar Lause and many more… Also featuring the one-colour iconic Victor Ash print that was made in conjunction with his Kreuzberg wall of 2007. All editions signed and numbered.

“Keep Smiling” is a 14-colour screen print based on the most iconic photograph of the Martha Cooper exhibition “One Week With 1UP” in a limited edition of 100 hand-pulled screen prints.
This highly technical art edition was crafted by Dolly Demoratti (Mother Drucker/Urban Spree Studios) and is released for the closing of the exhibition “One Week With 1UP” at Urban Spree Galerie.
In addition to the regular “Black Smiley” print, we offer 4 variations in a very limited run of 5 prints per edition: gold, chrome, mint, and pink.
The prints are available on the Urban Spree website here.
The screen-print produced for the Opening of the exhibition – “1UP Letters” – is still available here.
Starting on Friday 01.06 at 19:00, Urban Spree Galerie invites you to the Opening of “Balance“, a solo presentation of new works by the famed belgian duo Hell’O Collective in our main galerie space and their first solo show in Germany.
Running in parallel with their 10-year retrospective museum solo show at the BAM in Mons (“Enjoy the Show” at Musée des Beaux-Arts de Mons, Belgium, until 29.07.2018), “Balance” brings a brand new series of paintings on canvas and on paper to the Berlin audience.
For the Brussels-based duo, “Balance” reflects upon the constant search of the equilibrium between shape, color, and momentum in their painting practice and the need to achieve a new balance occurred as a renewed necessity after the hefty preparations for the museum show
Hell’O will also sign their new complete monograph “Untitled Oddyssey“, published in early May by CFC Editions.
Hell’O is a belgian artistic duo consisting of Antoine Detaille and Jérôme Meynen, active in murals as well as studio works and installations.
Several characteristics of their art indicate a filiation with the middle-age universe close to Jerome Bosch: an elegant and precise graphism, a taste for multiple, intertwined universes, and abundant references to a corpus of grotesque iconography, albeit perfectly mastered. Abstracted human bodies are among the many recurrent elements that are present in their paintings together with abstract, geometric signs, creating an overall rich personal mythology.
Urban Spree Prints will also release 2 screenprints specially made by the duo for the occasion.
