After the great success of the pinhole photography exhibition, we are organising a second edition of the workshop

fun
self production
recycling.

Everyone can discover how photography really works, with no need to buy a camera, but just trying to build an own self-made d-i-y camera with recycled material.

Building and playing with the principles of photography helps out understanding them.
Creating something unique and personalized in the era of digital and reproduction helps to just stop and think about the meaning of photography itself.

Participants will construct cameras, go outside, shoot, and learn how to develop and fix in the darkroom.

The pictures taken during the workshop will be displayed in Urban Spree Gallery during the following week, giving exposure to the photographers participating.

Every participant will receive all the material needed to participate in the workshop, and all the material for the darkroom:

– Materials for the construction of the cameras
– Photographic paper
– Acids for the darkroom
– Darkroom tools
– Analogue lightmeter
– Paint and painting tools

Workshop : Recycled Masks

Recyled Masks

Be ready for Carnival, create your own mask with recycled material!

We will start with a mirror, a sheet of paper and a pencil; next you are
free to select your own choice of materials from a mishmash of recycled and found objects that have the chance to “be reborn” in a new life.
It’s up to you to find the items that you think fit your face and/or
personality best, or the ones that hide your real being, in order to
transform yourself into a new creature.

Save from the bin 3 useless object and bring them with you, bring your fantasy too, we’ll provide for the rest of materials and tools.

Urban Spree at UAF Paris 2018

Urban Spree returns for the third consecutive year to the Paris Urban Art Fair from 12th to 15th of April 2018.

 

We will be presenting a duo show with two Berlin-based artists represented by the gallery, Hendrik Czakainski (GER) and Tavar Zawacki (USA). Both artists will be present during the Fair.

 

One of the highlights of the Urban Spree booth will be the presentation of a triptych by Hendrik Czakainski (see below). This artwork in 3 framed panels has a size of 288 cm long by 160 cm high. The german artist is known for his 3D surreal visions of urban and industrial settlements, prone to chaos, uncertainty and destruction, however reaching a formal and hypnotic abstracted beauty.

 

Urban Spree Prints will also release a limited edition 15-colour screen print set of the triptych work, masterly crafted at the Urban Spree Studios by Dolly Demoratti. This release is exclusive to the fair and will be launched at the Opening.

Urban Spree will also be presenting 6 new medium-sized works on canvas (120 x 90 cm) by Tavar Zawacki aka ABOVE. A further step away from his iconic “arrow” motive towards geometric abstraction and hard-edged painting, Tavar’s new works are subtle trompe l’oeil and variations perfectly executed in a muted color range. We will also introduce a new series of resin cut-out works from the Californian artist.


 

Tavar will sign copies of his book Metamorphosis – published by Urban Spree Books in September 2017 – on Saturday 14.04 at 16:00 on the Urban Spree booth.

 

We will also show some calligraphic works on paper by Bisco Smith and Jonas “Sun7” Bournat.

Urban Spree celebrates 10 years of the Astronaut Cosmonaut Wall

To mark the 10-year anniversary of the iconic “Astronaut Cosmonaut” mural painting in Berlin Kreuzberg, Urban Spree Galerie invites the French street artist Victor Ash for a special pop up exhibition.

The exhibition will be centered around the cult figure of the Astronaut with numerous original/stenciled works on paper and a mural at Urban Spree. A series of screen prints is expected to be released as well.

Alongside Blu’s now gone white characters on the Cuvrybrache, Victor Ash’s “Astronaut Cosmonaut” has achieved a cult mural status for Berlin.

Standing in Berlin-Kreuzberg near Kottbusser Tor and painted during the legendary Backjumps Festival #3 in 2007, the painting of a floating astronaut on 22 x 14 meters strikes a particular chord in Berlin.

For the parisian artist born in 1968 and fascinated by the Cold War, space exploration, graffiti, subcultures & electronic music, Berlin was to become from the mid to late 80s and since then a focal point of his attention, with regular trips to the city alongside artistic projects and residencies.

Victor Ash photographed by Soren Solkaer in 2013

In 2007, the Backjumps Festival – brilliantly curated by Adrian Nabi, gives Victor Ash the occasion to paint a big wall. Victor wants to concentrate and express his past experiences and vision of Berlin, the space race between the USSR and the USA but also the different Berlin subcultures and the desire to escape reality. “I got inspired by the song from David Bowie “Space Oddity” from 1969 in which he tells the story of a astronaut who gets lost in space and later on with the song “Ashes to Ashes” in 1981 where Bowie tells us that the spaceman was in fact a junkie on a trip”.

For the artist, the “Astronaut/Cosmonaut” represents the will to escape to other universes, “like as a little child, I escaped to a fantasy world with my space drawings and as a teenager, I escaped to subcultures to find my identity in the urban environment where I grew up”.
