Urban Spree proudly presents Onio’s Ecke, a solo show by Brazilian artist ONIO.
Onio’s Ecke will be presenting a range of media, from drawing and murals, to screen prints and zines. As a multidisciplinary artist, ONIO explores abstract shapes, intricate patterns and dynamic compositions in his work.
As part of the exhibition, ONIO will collaborate with Leipzig based artist and friend KID GRINGO on a big mural (7m x 14m) at the Urban Spree.
ONIO will spend two weeks preparing his show at the Urban Spree residency. The gallery will supply a studio space on the first floor to give ONIO the room for creativity.
Onio’s Ecke will be a part of the Euronio Tour which will take place in Barcelona, Paris, Antwerp, Amsterdam, London and Berlin over a 75-day span. During this artistic journey through Europe, ONIO will participate in residence art projects, large scale mural paintings and exhibitions with other artists from all over Europe.
ONIO portrays the hustle and bustle of life of metropolis Brasilia through his paintings. The repetitive forms and the bundles of lines in his works give an idea how the city is carved into his soul.
ONIO’s impressions of Brazil might be chaotic and disorganized, but on the other hand, the warm colors and friendly shapes convey an atmosphere of hope, positive energy and mystical consciousness. His works have already been shown in Brazil, notably in Sao Paolo, Brasilia as well as other cities internationally.
