Urban Spree proudly presents “Rare Shots on Planet X – The Disturbanity Book” – an exuberant solo exhibition and book presentation by german artist Matthias Gephart.
The Berlin-based artist, whose spectrum ranges from graffiti and typography to collage, illustration and photography, combines this variety of disciplines in a virtuoso manner. The continous fusion of art and life is programmatic here in the graphic melting pot named Disturbanity.
“The monograph retraces punk and graffiti and their mutual impact as significant inspirations which extends the artist’s personal story to an assemblage of alternative and attitude, of urban subculture and DIY.” (Annika Hirsekorn, Neurotitan Galerie)
Matthias Gephart’s monograph “Rare Shots on Planet X – The Disturbanity Book” is a journey through 25 years of visual creation. The show will present its content to the Berlin audience for the first time on a large-scale level. Self-financed via crowdfunding, released by publishing house Kettler at the Frankfurt book fair in 2015 and awarded by New Yorks art and design magazine Creative Quarterly, the limited edition book is available at Urban Spree and will be signed for you by the artist at the vernissage evening.
“In a positive way: Overkill!” (Andreas Löhr, Fliehende Stürme)
