Rawcuts + Internal, a double solo show by Onio and Sosek

Urban Spree Galerie presents a double solo show by São Paulo-based artists Onio and Sosek.

Born out of graffiti and pixação, Onio and Sosek are invited by Urban Spree to exhibit their latest series of drawings, ink paintings and collages and work on site-specific projects during their Berlin residency.



Onio: “Rawcuts” 29.07 – 14.08 (Ecke)

Returning at Urban Spree, the Brazilian artist Adriano Cinelli aka Onio brings his newest series of works entitled Rawcuts.

Onio has always been recognized for his vibrant aesthetics that oscillate between comics, illustration and painting, using strong colours in graphic meshes that tend to abstraction.

For his Urban Spree residency and exhibition, Onio takes a more experimental aproach and presents a series of colorful collages, mixing materials and techniques to attain a new aesthetics.


The direct influence of chaos, visual pollution, and the characteristic urban aspect of São Paulo are a natural resource and inspiration to his work.

In addition to the presentation of original collages on small and medium-sized formats, Onio is also releasing a black-and-white zine entitled “Rawcuts” in a limited edition.


Sosek: “Internal” 29.07 – 07.08

For Sosek, the life in the paulistana street is inseparable from his art, notably the forgotten people, the left overs from the brazilian society, the silent homeless cohort that populates the city.

Roaming at night, he walks through São Paulo with friends to paint and photograph scenes of life on the streets, photographing the crude reality, Sosek then transcends the images in portraits and scenes, using only black ink. Unlike Onio, the world of Sosek is a world in black-and-white, drifting and dripping, rooted in calligraphy, graffiti & drawing, making the invisible, visible.


“Internal” reveals the acute tension in the artist’s mind, the conflict with his inner self as represented by the city’s chaos. Sosek will also release his new zine, based on photographs and drawings of homeless people and decayed streets, in a limited edition of 100 copies.

“I bring a sense of unease about our society and the destitute side of our existence”

Sun Araw & Laraaji 'The Play Zone'

CTM is pleased to welcome return collaborator Sun Araw for a special performance with Laraaji. Both supporting recent album releases, Sun Araw and Laraaji will play their own sets as well meld zither, electronics, acoustics, and outernational sound sources into a special live collaboration, “Play Zones”. The project combines the unique niches of both artists, who have carved their own 21st century spiritual dimension in musical space and time.

New York-based Laraaji began playing music on the streets in the 1970s, improvising trance-inducing jams on a modified autoharp processed through various electronic effects. Upon seeing him playing one night in Washington Square Park, Brian Eno invited him to record an album for his seminal Ambient series. Laraaij went onto release a prolific series of albums for a wide variety of labels, many of which he recorded himself at home and sold as cassettes during his street performances. Most recently his career has been celebrated with the double disc retrospective Celestial Music 1970 – 2011, now set for release as a vinyl edition in 2014 on All Saints/Warp, along with specially commissioned remixes by new acolytes Sun Araw, Bee Mask, Ela Orleans, and Motion Sickness Of Time Travel.

Over multiple cassette releases, three EPs, six full-length albums and some arresting visual work, Cameron Stallones aka Sun Araw has evolved as a singular purveyor of low-end psychedelia, melted afrobeat and warped dub. An excellent example of hypnagogic pop, Sun Araw’s music messes with time; his tracks never quite go anywhere while never quite staying still either. Filled with swelling bass lines, bubbling percussion, flabby synth stabs and languid guitars, Araw’s tracks tend to merge into one another, conjuring a timeless fog. Sun Araw’s latest album, Belomancie (Sun Ark, 2014), self-described as an “active listening experience…not designed to accompany existing environments”, is his first album since the pointillist stumble-funk and heat-bent grooves of 2012’s The Inner Treaty, which dropped shortly after Icon Give Thank (Rvng Intl, 2012), a collaborative album between Stallones, M. Geddes Gengras and roots reggae vocal legends The Congos as part of their FRKWYS series.

Joining the evening with a DJ-Set and on stage with Cameron Stallones is regular Sun Araw live collaborator Alex Gray aka Deep Magic, who since releasing his debut album, Solar Meditations, for cult label Not Not Fun, has gone on to record a number of longform pieces, mainly on small cassette releases including for his own Deep Tapes label. His third album, Reflections of Most Forgotten Love (Preservation, 2013) creates a meditative realm that is somehow dynamic and driven while at the same time beautifully spacious – a patiently unfolding pursuit of spiritual grace. Alex Gray has also contributed to works by Pocahaunted and Black Eagle Child.

In 2011 the band from Detroit (around Joe Casey (vocals) / Greg Ahle (guitar) / Scott Davidson (bass) and drummer Alex Leonard) stood in the recording studio together for the first time. The result was “No Passion All Technique” and cost only four hours and a case of beer.

“No Passion All Technique” is sold out and sold out shortly after its original release on Urinal Cake Records in October 2012. Intellectual, heartbreaking, funny – a random tour de force that has also become an unlikely collector’s item. “My Memory is shot,” says Casey, “but looking back now, I appreciate how raw and spontaneous it was. There are tons of flaws in it, and it wasn’t because we planned it. The first album is never really the best but I’m glad the album didn’t suck in the end. It opened the door to what we wanted to do later. ”

Their current EP “Consolation” was released in 2018.
