On the occasion of the VAO Collective Art Residency and Exhibition at Urban Spree Galerie in Berlin (22.11.2016 – 02-12.2016), Urban Spree and L’Atlas release an exclusive series of screen prints.
Red Seal (Master Edition) is a 2-colour large format print (90 x 130 cm) edited in a limited run of 8 prints only. The motive stems from an iconic arabic calligraphic style used by L’Atlas alongside his other geometric and labyrinth patterns.
In addition to the Master Edition, Urban Spree releases 3 prints variations in a 60 x 80 cm format, in WHITE, BLACK, and SILVER.
The variant screen prints, hand-pulled at Urban Spree, are produced in a limited run of 30 prints, signed and numbered and 8 only for the silver edition.
About the artist:
Jules Dedet Granel, aka L’Atlas, is a French artist born in 1978. He began doing graffiti in the early 1990s before co-founding the VAO Collective (“Vandales à l’Origine”) in 1996.
Fascinated by the history of handwriting, he has studied calligraphy in several countries, including in the Middle East, and designed his own typography. He frequently works in public spaces and has become a major figure of the Street Art movement and calligraphic abstraction. He lives and works in Paris.
Urban Spree is proud to announce the upcoming release of a large format screen print by Twoone in a limited edition run of only 25 copies.
The screen print will be officially released on Tuesday, March 15th, 2016 at 10:00 CET in Berlin, available online on the Urban Spree webstore.
The Berlin based Japanese-Australian street artist teamed up with Urban Spree and Mother Drucker to produce this art edition print, using only traditional techniques.
Each print is a hand-painted multiple.
On Friday, May 17th at 12:00 GMT, Urban Spree, Nychos, Mother Drucker & Pictoplasma are releasing a limited edition screen print by the famed austrian street artist.
Based on a wall painted by Nychos in Vienna in early 2014, Chicken Dance is a 6-colour screen print produced in the Urban Spree ateliers by Mother Drucker on the occasion of the 10 years of the Berlin Pictoplasma Festival, where he also painted a big mural at Urban Spree.
The print is an elaborate 6-layer artwork, only released at 50 copies, signed and numbered.

Both prints are available in Berlin at Urban Spree and online on our webstore. The exhibition of new paintings and drawings of the belgian duo goes on until 24.06 in our galerie space.
“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.
Urban Spree releases a 70 x 90 cm screen print in half tones that has been printed in Berlin at Urban Spree on the occasion of the special release of the Bad Destiny video by French experimental photographer Thomas ‘Toums” Gosset, directed by Stéfane Cales.
The video is a comical journey into the photographic world of Toums and focuses especially on his complex chemically enhanced process and analog set of techniques. In the narrative, we follow Toums from the moment where he takes the photograph to the final paste-up of the image in the street of his native Bordeaux, and going through the whole elaborated development process in between.
The image that is the outcome of the process has been screen printed in Berlin for the occasion in a limited edition and is available in our Berlin shop and on our Urban Spree website here: http://bit.ly/2qq0t0x
