For our last show of 2015, Urban Spree Galerie is proud to invite you to a group show featuring some of the best free-spirited painting talents in european contemporary urban art.
‘Magic Life’ unites under one roof the magic wizards of Vienna, aka the Irga Irga Crew (Mik Shida, Fresh Max, Mafia_Tabak and Knarf), the West Germany free spirits of Nartur Kunstgruppe and our Resident Artist Johannes Mundinger.
Wall painted in Germany by Fresh Max and Shida – Summer 2015
All the 9 invited artists are painters, using walls to express their energy and talent with scale, and are characterized by free brush strokes, extreme free flow and disdain of conveniences.
The Irga Irga Crew is a collective of 4 artists based in Vienna. Beside painting, drinking and working together, they also publish the handmade magazine called ”WANDBLATT whose 3rd and latest edition was sold out pretty fast.
Irga Irga are: Fresh Max, Knarf, Mafia/Tabak und Shida
MAFIA / TABAK
Coming from a Graffiti/Urban Art background, the interaction between his work and a specific site has always been a central aspect of Johannes Mundinger’s work. In fine arts, he developed a visual language between abstract and figurative painting.
Born in 1982 in Offenburg, he has studied in Münster and Brussels. Since 2011 he is living in Berlin and is an Urban Spree Resident Artist since 2012.
Nartur Kunstgruppe is a german art collective based in Osnabrück, Berlin and Münster. The 4 artists seek to challenge the traditional forms of art and image conception. Their paintings are often used as part of installations in large formats.
Any use of material is hereby welcome which often creates a form of art characterised by bright colours, cut outs and generous overpainting. Nartur Kunstgruppe aims to combine abstract painting with graffiti, everyday life, naive wisdom and research. The artists of this collective are Henning Bischof, Nils Leimkühler, Moritz Neuhoff und Stefan Wiesnau.
