Urban Spree Gallery Presents
The first German solo show of the Broken Fingaz Crew
Founded along the Haifa shores around 2001, the wandering Street Art Crew, the Broken Fingaz Crew has adorned many murals in numerous cities worldwide in the past decade.
The crew is made of 4 artists (Deso, Kip, Tant and Unga) who collectively define the imagery of the Broken Fingaz, which includes numerous references to the American pulp & Marvel comics, B-movies of the 70’s and 80’s, psychedelic & pop art, collage & poster works, Szenenbildner, Italian giallo genre that composes an original & visually striking iconography.
Their drawing and spraying skills, masterful sense of composition and selection of pop colors and pop/comics imagery have made them over time one of the most admired street art crews, in the wake of US power duo Faile (also for their installation skills) and British pop master D*Face.
The crew has seldom participated in exhibitions so far with only some appearances in the famed ‘Old Truman Brewery’ in London and at the ‘Inoperable Galerie’ in Vienna.
On October 10th is the opening of their stunning art show in Berlin at Urban Spree. The show will be divided in three sections: Their first realization, the ‘Berlin Sticker Pack’ wall at Urban Spree is a collection of graphic vignettes cleverly inspired by the Holocaust and becomes the first step of the exhibition. The giant pop up wood installation and a series of silk screen prints will be the second step.
Berlin has always been a magnet and reference to the crew. And It’s now for the Broken Fingaz the occasion to deliver an astounding artistic manifesto to the German capital.
