Urban Spree Galerie presents « Explorations« , the first solo show of the Krakow-based calligraffiti writer SICOER in Berlin.
« Explorations » is the outcome of several working sessions at Urban Spree Berlin in January and February 2020, interspersed with intense studio time in Krakow during the lockdown, resulting in an unexpected dialogue in time and space.
During this time, Sicoer has conducted extensive research and experiments about form and flow, perfecting structure, balance, free flow and ultimately meeting a form of abstraction.
« Explorations » is the outcome of a spiritual journey through letters.
Sicoer is a calligraffiti painter based in Krakow well known for his vandal graffiti as well as his handstyle studio works. Having started graffiti in 1998 and still active nowadays, Sicoer created in parallel a studio practice based on the combination of letters, geometric compositions, flow and a limited use of color range. Relentlessly exploring, Sicoer turned recently his graphic experiments towards calligraffiti abstraction.

We are thrilled to announce the Reopening of our beloved Biergarten this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!
Join us in the sun for a chill weekend of music, food, and drinks. With an eclectic range of artists supplying great sound vibes for the entire weekend.
On top, the Urban Spree Shop will open again with a selection of prints and books we’ve been building during the stay-at-home period.
In addition, since we’ll be closing at 22:00, we are opening much earlier at 11:00 am with a food and coffee offer. We’ve been partnering with F-Hain beloved and best-in-class coffee house Silo Coffee to bring you great beans & skills to Urban Spree on a permanent basis.
Space is limited, as respecting the corona guidelines and your safety is of paramount importance to us. Urban Spree’s outdoor area is however vast and tables have been repositioned according to the regulations and we believe we offer a safe experience to everyone.
We greatly look forward to seeing you all and hosting you once again!

Dame Area (Barcelona, Spain)
Dame Area mixes synths and live percussion, industrialism and tribalism. Their music works as a musical Rorscharch test: some people call them Tribal Wave, others Latin EBM, some say they do pure Krautrock some say that they do Industrial Postpunk.
Their music has been played in the sets of some of the bravest DJs out there including The Hacker, Identified Patient, Vladimir Ivkovic, Yamatsuka Eye (Boredoms) or Tommy Tokyo (Group A) among others.
Jean-Luc (France, Suisse)
Listen 🔪 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPRFiS65Nmo
– Jean-Luc is a Berlin-Fribourg-Vienna based band, even though Jean-Luc might be french.
– Jean-Luc doesn’t like clichés, that’s why it’s impossible to find one of him on the web.
– Jean-Luc’s big toenail dug a hole through the fabrik of his right espadrille while dancing drunk in the Spartacus in 1994 to a song from Beate Bartel and Chrislo Haas. Instead of sewing it up, Jean-Luc hang the espadrille to his wall as a reminder to do a hommage to that song one day.

Los Angeles is shaking under the constant influence of the Western world and its inhabitants are masters in viewing their lives through the digital lens. It looks like a panopticon, a huge chamber of mirrors. In this city of sun and surveillance, the punk quartet The Paranoyds have channelled their joy and disgust into their debut album « Carnage Bargain » – a raw mix of garage rock, new wave bragging rights, classic horror movie soundtrack and a host of other left-wing influences.
