THE REBEL

The Rebel is best known as the frontman, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter for the band Country Teasers. His lyrics often deal with taboo subjects such as racism, sexism, and xenophobia from first-person standpoints–sort of like William S. Burroughs leading Joy Division or The Fall through a setlist of art-damaged country and western songs. With an insane discography on dozens of labels, most notably In The Red, Crypt, Sacred Bones, and Monofonus Press, one could legitimately argue he is the greatest living song writer today.

SPRAY PAINT

Austin, Texas-based trio Spray Paint deliver a discordant squall of no-wave guitars and stomping rhythms with a bitter, sardonic attitude. Their biting, jarring songs are inspired by the bleakness and desolation surrounding their habitat and human neglect of the environment in general. Spray Paint debuted in 2012 with an angular sound which quickly gained attention throughout the underground noise-rock scene. They’ve toured Japan, Australia, Europe, Mexico, and the United States, all the while releasing six LPs and five 7”s on Goner, Upset the Rhythm, Monofonus Press, Homeless, and S-S Records.

Itamar Inbar: Play It, Don’t Spray It

On 17.09, in parallel with the opening of Hendrik Czakainski’s “Urban Investigations”, we are showcasing the latest works of Israeli contemporary artist Itamar Inbar. Itamar has been spending the last few months as a Urban Spree Resident Artist and has been working on a few analog installations which we are proud of showing in our Galerie’s “Ecke”

In the era of digitalism, analogue video is a worthless technology, forgotten about also in the art world. The video artist has become a programmer, being surrounded by data, changing and editing digital antimatter.

We change and are changed by the world around us. Like our memories change through time and events. And matter does too. No need to be afraid. Imagine the video artist again as a constructor or sculpturist instead, connecting with his the matter – mentally and physically.

The Video Home System (VHS) is the first technology used by the masses to capture moments, force memories to last. Inbar – as many of his generation – grew up with it, grew into it. Now with contemporary perspective, Inbar is re-examining this media, by turning video tape cassettes (VHS), video players (VCR) and old televisions into kinetic sculptures.

Inbar’s work was shown at Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art (Israel), Fresh Paint Art Fair (Israel), different galleries in Tel Aviv and Berlin.

RAWS and Urban Spree Prints release “Through the Slits”

Urban Spree Prints and RAWS release a 5-colour screen print on the occasion of the first solo show of the German artist.

Through the Slits” comes in a regular black edition of 80 prints printed in Berlin by Oliver Nerlich Siebdruck, signed and numbered by the artist. The size is 60 x 60 cm.

In addition to the regular edition, we are releasing a special hand-sprayed version. This 4-colour Special Edition has a red background and the middle slit gradient is individually sprayed by RAWS, making each print a unique variant. This run comes as an edition of 20 prints only.

You can purchase the screen print at Urban Spree Berlin during the exhibition (official launch at 19:00 on May 23rd, 2019) or order it on the Urban Spree website here for the regular edition and there for the Special Edition.

 



RAWS: #Neograffism

Urban Spree Galerie presents “#Neograffism“, the first solo show of the Berlin-based post-graffiti artist Kai “RAWS” Imhof with Urban Spree.

In “#Neograffism”, a term coined by the artist as being representative of his studio philosophy, RAWS strips down his years of graffiti practice and complexity build-up to lay bare the basic essence of graffiti through color and shape in a visually stunning arrangement of colors, contrasts, and gradients.

RAWS explores the tipping point where the core aesthetics of graffiti, after being deconstructed and re-arranged, becomes acceptable as a form of art while retaining its purity. The artist uses a mixed technique in his studio works, using both the spray can and the acrylic brush, as a hybridation of both worlds, the studio and the outdoor.

When it comes to design, I try to combine my preferences for letters, graphics and minimalism in my work. Many of the works were done using acrylic paints and spray cans. The use of these media also emphasizes the duality of graphics and graffiti. In my canvases I have mostly worked with gradients. These are created exclusively with aerosol and can be a symbol of the movement and transience of graffiti.

In his “Black Series”, writing his name becomes a subdued background while the colorful gradients are windows to his artistic world.

New Screen Print Release with Stohead

Urban Spree Prints and Stohead release this Friday “Brewing Out“, a 9-colour hand-pulled screen print based on a mural painted in 2014 by the Berlin-based artist in Linz, Austria. The mural is documented in the book “The Art of Writing Your Name“.

The print is a subtle rendition of a classic Stohead handstyle, morphing into a distillation/dissolution on the bottom of the print, announcing Stohead’s current artistic direction (liquid fumes).

The 60 x 60 cm print comes in a limited Regular Edition of 50 prints, signed and numbered by the artist. In addition, Stohead will produce a Special hand-sprayed Edition, in a limited run of 10 prints.

The prints will be available this coming Friday, May 3rd, 2019, at 17:00 on the Urban Spree website and in our Berlin Shop at the same time.

The print is based on a subsequent canvas painted by the artist after he completed the wall. Mother Drucker’s master printer, Dolly Demoratti, has chosen a complex, 9-colour version, to recreate the subtleness of the motive.
