Mode 2 x Urban Spree: A Time to Dance

A Collection of 19 unique hand-painted prints


In the midst of the production of the regular 7-color “Jazztronik” and “Rude Movements” 60 x 80 cm screen prints in-house in November 2020, came to the fore the extravagant idea to create large unique 1-layer prints on Somerset paper (130 x 95 cm) which would then befully hand-painted.

Using the same 2 motives, the intuitive process started with creating the background with large colored brushstrokes, then the outlines of the motives would be screen printed before Mode would start to paint into the characters, add many highlights, shadows and gradients. Countless hours of painting would be put into them, injecting a lot of flesh, movement, life and diversity into each of them, in effect recreating various atmospheres of clubs, a warm tribute to the club culture he cherishes so much.

The painting sessions were interspersed over the course of 2 months, with the final brushstroke before Christmas 2020.

In total, 19 prints have been painted. In the later stage of the process, all prints have been mounted on Alu Dibond and then framed with a custom wooden white frame.
