About the artist

EGS (FINLAND, *1974)

 

EGS is an anonymous Finnish visual artist who has held several exhibitions in galleries, installations at the Helsinki Biennial 2021 and has previously held major solo shows at the Finnish Glass Museum (2020) and the Kunsthalle Helsinki (2018). The name EGS originates from his graffiti tag, as he began his career when the first wave of graffiti hit Finland in the mid-1980s. Since then, and while still active in graffiti, the artist has transmutated his style into different directions, towards an abstrated practice of graffiti, using painting, drawing, hand-blown glass sculptures, and installations in search of meaning, mostly in the wake of the collapse of the USSR and the recomposition of Europe, exploring ruins, concrete surfaces, and the notion of impermanence. EGS's latest book, "Writing Stories with Three Letters", retracing his breakthrough exhibition of glass sculptures at the Finnish Glass Museum (2020) is available here at Urban Spree. 

Upcoming major shows include a solo exhibition at the Serlachius Museums in Finland (2022), a large hand-blown glass sculpture installation at the Wayward Gallery in London (2022), and a solo show at the Didrichsen Museum in Helsinki (2024). EGS lives and works in Helsinki, Finland
