Urban Spree Galerie proudly presents the Berlin release of the first monograph about Felix Gephart as well as a selection of his large-sized artworks.
Felix Gephart (b.1986 in Bochum, West Germany), started graffiti quite early, and later formally studied art in Münster, Dortmund and at the New York School of Visual Arts.
His body of work is hard to categorize: inspired by the ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’ as well as the underground comics world, he is a figurative artist, a satirical & newspaper illustrator, and graffiti writer, whose work is often dark with some steampunk elements (à la Kevin O’Neill).
The monograph released by Kettler Verlag, presents all the facets of the artist: seemingly literary and old master-like drawings face murals, landscape representations, portraits and surrealist mythological creatures.
Large-sized illustrations and numerous detail photographs offer an insight into the powerful, thematically, stylistically and technically diversified oeuvre.
Vernissage: Friday November 22nd from 19:00.
Book signings in the presence of the artist.
Exhibition until Sunday, November 24th. 12:00-20:00
