HELL’O COLLECTIVE: BALANCE

Opening on Friday 01.06 at 19:00, Urban Spree Galerie invites you to the Opening of “Balance“, a solo presentation of new works by the famed belgian duo Hell’O Collective in our main galerie space and their first solo show in Germany.

Running in parallel with their retrospective museum solo show at the BAM in Mons (Musée des Beaux-Arts de Mons, Belgium), “Balance” brings a brand new series of paintings on canvas and on paper to the Berlin audience.

For the Brussels-based duo, “Balance” reflects upon the constant search of the equilibrium between shape, color, and momentum in their painting practice.

Hell’O will also sign their new monograph “Untitled Oddyssey“, published in early May by CFC Editions, and Urban Spree Prints will also release 2 screenprints specially made by the duo for the occasion.

Hell’O is a belgian artistic duo consisting of Antoine Detaille and Jérôme Meynen, active in murals as well as studio works and installations.

Several characteristics of their art indicate a filiation with the middle-age universe close to Jerome Bosch: an elegant and precise graphism, a taste for multiple, intertwined universes, and abundant references to a corpus of grotesque iconography, albeit perfectly mastered. Abstracted human bodies are among the many recurrent elements that are present in their paintings together with abstract, geometric signs, creating an overall rich personal mythology.

Wolf Mountains – « Urban Dangerous Tour »

The third studio album « Urban Dangerous » by the garage-rock trio Wolf Mountains opens further doors into the world of timeless pop. The characteristic features like the rolling bass or the 90’s high school rock vocals are still present, but a playground of sound experiments and skits is opened up. The songwriting seems more mature, the riffs more cheeky, the fun factor more balanced, so that the individual songs are amplified by the « hit » factor.

« Urban Dangerous » radiates an energy that increases the mood barometer considerably and can also be enjoyed in all kinds of situations. The R-O-C-K factor plays a big role whether packed in a western look, driving psychedelic blues or with classic indie punk attitude, the Wolf Mountains give the genre the esprit it desperately needs in 2019.

« Urban Dangerous » released on September 27th on Treibender Teppich Records

Doors: 20:00 Uhr, Start: 21:00 Uhr

Birds in Row / Life in Vacuum / Bystander

 

Birds in Row -> Listen

Birds in Row is an experimental hardcore punk/metal trio who write punitive, exasperated tunes with equisitite, dark textures. Their members maintain a level of anonymity to pin the focus on the music itself rather than those who create it. Birds in Row is committed to a true DIY ethic, placing all their efforts into the creation of a deep fan-to-artist connection.

Life in Vacuum -> Listen

Life In Vacuum make a messy, chaotic brand of aggressive weirdo punk sure to get you amped. They easily balance technical song construction with raw, free-form jam sections to create an intense, gnarly listening experience. Their live show takes the bands grizzly, brutal sound to the next level — showcasing their powerful, sonically oppressive presence.

Jonni Cheatwood: Tyger Tyger

Urban Spree Galerie presents « Tyger Tyger« , the first solo show in Europe of the L.A. based visual artist Jonni Cheatwood.


URBAN SPREE STUDIO, JUNE 2019

The American artist spent a month at Urban Spree in Berlin as an Artist-in-Residence to create 12 large format artworks that will be exhibited in the galerie from July 5th, 2019 to August 4th, 2019.

Jonni Cheatwood incorporates found fabrics into his canvases, which he himself cuts and saws, in order to create variations and move away from the uniform surface of the canvas. Some fabrics have geometric patterns whereas some others are figurative. The Residency enabled Jonni to source local fabrics, found in the Turkish market or in the street. Once the patchwork is assembled, Cheatwood paints blocks of colors on it, adding multiple layers of paint and agglomerating texture, freely outlining the shapes to convey dynamism and balance.

Jonni Cheatwood is an abstract painter whose work is about balance, shape and color and who can be related to the « Figuration narrative » movement. Here, Roy Lichtenstein makes an appearance in most canvases of the series as a reference and a cultural bridge as some fabrics sourced in Berlin include some embroidered stories derived from the American painter.

Jonni’s work is also close to the post-graffiti movement as we can also view his color shapes and black outlines as deconstructed graffiti.

Overall, his work is very dynamic, balanced and superbly colorful.

« Tyger Tyger burning bright, 
In the forests of the night: 
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry? »
