Urban Spree Galerie presents “Explorations“, the first solo show of the Krakow-based calligraffiti painter SICOER in Berlin.
“Explorations” – initially due to open in March 2020 – is the outcome of several one-week working sessions at Urban Spree in Berlin during the months of January and February 2020, interspersed with intense studio time in Krakow during the lockdown.
The Covid-19 closed the borders and the artist found himself in an unexpected form of retreat and focused entirely on his art, endlessly experimenting, finding new tools, new ways of expression and ultimately discovering a more abstract part of his work which is giving a new direction to the show.
Sicoer is a calligraffiti painter based in Krakow well known for his vandal graffiti as well as his handstyle studio works. Having started graffiti in 1998 and still active nowadays, Sicoer created in parallel a studio practice based on the combination of letters, geometric compositions, flow and a limited use of color range. Relentlessly exploring, Sicoer turned recently his graphic experiments towards calligraffiti abstraction.
