Rafael Sliks concludes his Urban Spree Art Residency by a new show opening

Urban Spree Galerie is pleased to invite you to Rafael Sliks’ solo exhibition “Ambivalence“, which concludes a 2-week art residency in Berlin.

Urban Spree Galerie has invited Brazilian visual and graffiti artist Rafael Sliks in March 2017 as part of its Art Residency Program. During two weeks, the São Paulo-based artist has been creating a series of artworks in Berlin, taking the pulse of the german metropolis.

Sliks’ artistic universe reflects the tension between the physical chaos present in urban areas and the spiritual introspection he experiences in nature. Both being his main sources of inspiration, Rafael Sliks’ art seeks to harmonize and reconcile cities and nature in a single movement, mixing the colors and vision of nature with the ultra-fast movements of his graffiti skills, and vice-versa. Blurring the lines. Ambivalence.

The art of Rafael Sliks originates in graffiti for which he has developed a renowned style made of astro fatcapped tags and throw-ups. His indoor work is fueled by colour, repetition and overlapping tags, music beats, creating visual enigmas and infinite expanses of universe.

About the artist:

Rafael Sliks, born in the Central Region of Sao Paulo, Brazil, began his artistic career in 1997, where he was strongly influenced by the style of letters in the streets. Nowadays, his artworks can be found in streets around the globe. Sliks has also exhibited his art in galleries in the United States, Europe and Australia.

The Urban Spree Art Residency Program invites Berlin-based and international artists to freely experiment at Urban Spree Galerie during intense 2-week indoor and outdoor painting sessions open to the public and leading to exhibitions.

In July 2016, Urban Spree Galerie inaugurates a new format: the Urban Spree Art Residency.

Over a period of 3 weeks, Urban Spree invites the Berlin-based Japanese artist Twoone / Hiroyasu Tsuri to transplant his atelier directly in the gallery in order to create a series of site-specific artworks.

The public is welcome to witness the process from the very beginning and is being offered the opportunity to engage with the artist while he’s creating and with the work-in-progress art while he’s absent, a process climaxing into the Opening. The official opening of the show will be a the end of the residency, inverting the codes of an art show.

Outdoor paintings created simultaneously will resonate and echo indoor work as the Residency spills over the boundaries of the gallery to merge into the whole space.

Beginning of the Residency: July 6th Tu-Sa 12:00 – 18:00

Opening of the Show: 23.07 – 19:00

Last Day of the Show: 24.07 – 12:00-19:00

Twoone: Urban Spree Art Residency

In July 2016, Urban Spree Galerie inaugurates a new format: the Urban Spree Art Residency.

During 3 weeks, Urban Spree invites Twoone (Hiroyasu Tsuri) to transplant his atelier directly in the galerie, in order to create artworks that will be constructed directly in the space, and with the possibility for the public to watch and engage with the artist. With the Residency idea, we wish to be as close as possible to the creation process, open the studio, and develop site-specific installations as all artworks will be necessarily influenced by the space, with a propension to work on larger formats. Outdoor paintings created simultaneously will resonate and echo indoor work as the Residency spills over the boundaries of the gallery to merge into the whole space.

The Berlin-based Japanese artist will create a series of artworks on glass, neon, canvases, and prints. Unplanned collaborations with visiting artists can as well happen, depending on who’s coming to Berlin in the next 3 weeks.

The Art Residency follows an inverted process: the public is welcome to witness the process from the very beginning. We want to foster a dynamic approach, create bridges between the artist and the audience, offer the opportunity to see an exhibition created in situ, step by step, climaxing into the opening. In this process, the opening of the show will happen on the last day of the show.

 

Beginning of the Residency: July 6th Tu-Sa 12:00 – 18:00

Opening of the Show: July 23rd, 19:00

Last Day of the Show: July 24th, 12:00-19:00

Bisco Smith x Urban Spree: 2 new t-shirts and hoodies announced

Bisco Smith designs 2 exclusive t-shirts and hoodies for Urban Spree.

Following his Residency in Berlin earlier this year, the Brooklyn-based calligraffiti artist adds his signature handstyle to our Artist Series.

The series is limited to a run of 50 hoodies and 50 t-shirts only.

They are manually screen printed in-house at Urban Spree in Berlin.

The back motive reads “Urban Spree” in a complex, free flow handstyle which is the trademark of the American artist, while the front medallion represents a simplified version of the motive – also called “throw-up”. The black hoodies and t-shirts are printed with a gunpowder shimmering water-based grey ink.

The Urban Spree Artist Series is a limited edition of screen printed calligraphic t-shirts and hoodies in collaboration with graffiti and visual artists.

The series will be available on our website on Thursday, November 29th at 12:00 (noon) NYC time and 18:00 in Berlin.

 



Palefroi: “Étalage” Art Residency + Solo Show

 

“Étalage: stand, stall, barrow,

display, window display, 

showcase, showing off

spreading out, falling flat on one’s face / on the floor”

 

Urban Spree Galerie invites the Berlin-based French duo Palefroi for a month-long residency in our Berlin studio during the first three weeks of July, followed by a week-long residency directly in the gallery, and culminating in a month-long solo show.

Damien Tran and Marion Jdanoff are two French artists currently based in Berlin. Their visual work as a duo is a constant negociation between their respective approaches.. One is formal and abstract, the other narrative and figurative. They are attached to a form of harshness in the lines, to generous proliferation, to spontaneity and wonkiness.

Palefroi is a framework embracing all of their practices: printmaking, self publishing, painting and animated drawings. It is a space of experimentation and collaboration but also a structure supporting both their work as a duo and as individuals.

Following Palefroi’s residency at Urban Spree in July 2018, their solo exhibition Étalage should consist of: wolves, people playing trumpets, a fake tiger, dancing dots, drums solo and wallpapers.
