Mode2 and Urban Spree release « Never Too Late… »

10 years after its publication, we are happy to re-release the second edition of Mode2’s legendary book « Never Too Late… » in 2 different editions.

The book will be released exclusively on the Urban Spree webshop here on Friday April 3rd at 18:00 CET (Berlin time).

Originally published in 2008 in a 64-page hardcover version, the book sold out instantly. A second, revised softcover edition of 80 pages was commissioned in the wake but was never properly released.

Since it’s « Never Too Late… », we are finally releasing the book for its 10th Anniversary Year.

To celebrate the return of the prodigal book, in addition to the regular trade edition, Mode2 has designed a Special Edition of 100 copies. Each of the 100 book covers has been spray-painted and each copy is signed and numbered.

Numbers 001-050 come with a screen-printed tee-shirt of the cover’s motive, printed in-house at Urban Spree (Earth Positive brand, organic, fair trade cotton) while numbers 051-100 will be only the signed and numbered edition of the book.

Igor Revelis/Klone: The be(Longing)

Urban Spree Galerie presents « The be(Longing) », the 3rd solo exhibition of Tel-Aviv based artist Igor Revelis a.k.a. Klone with Urban Spree Galerie.

After a decade exploring the medium of paper, « The be(Longing) » marks the return of the artist to the medium of canvas. Bringing his spray can technique of shadows and gradients to perfection, Klone paints monochrome compositions where the matter of the canvas blends into geometric shapes and abstract landscapes.

« The be(Longing) is an investigation of hybrid identity, a portal into a parallel realm tucked away from the increasingly globalized and visually homologized world. Set against the backdrop of dark gallery walls, restless portraits and landscapes can be peered at, stripped of all contextual clues, the painful human relation between object-subject tugs at the primal root of abstraction. There are no nouns in this landscape, everything is a verb, the gaze is an action. » Mika Bar-On Nesher

A few signed copies of the latest artist’s monograph – « FEWMOMENTSAGOIWASHERE »,  looking over the last 8 years of exhibitions, mural projects, installation, and animations, will be available at the opening.

Klone (b.1983) is an Ukrianian-born, Tel-Aviv based street artist, a pioneer of graffiti in Israel and a visual artist

RAWS: #Neograffism

Urban Spree Galerie presents « #Neograffism« , the first solo show of the Berlin-based post-graffiti artist Kai « RAWS » Imhof with Urban Spree.

In « #Neograffism », a term coined by the artist as being representative of his studio philosophy, RAWS strips down his years of graffiti practice and complexity build-up to lay bare the basic essence of graffiti through color and shape in a visually stunning arrangement of colors, contrasts, and gradients.

RAWS explores the tipping point where the core aesthetics of graffiti, after being deconstructed and re-arranged, becomes acceptable as a form of art while retaining its purity. The artist uses a mixed technique in his studio works, using both the spray can and the acrylic brush, as a hybridation of both worlds, the studio and the outdoor.

« When it comes to design, I try to combine my preferences for letters, graphics and minimalism in my work. Many of the works were done using acrylic paints and spray cans. The use of these media also emphasizes the duality of graphics and graffiti. In my canvases I have mostly worked with gradients. These are created exclusively with aerosol and can be a symbol of the movement and transience of graffiti. »

In his « Black Series », writing his name becomes a subdued background while the colorful gradients are windows to his artistic world.

New Screen Print Release with Stohead

Urban Spree Prints and Stohead release this Friday « Brewing Out« , a 9-colour hand-pulled screen print based on a mural painted in 2014 by the Berlin-based artist in Linz, Austria. The mural is documented in the book « The Art of Writing Your Name« .

The print is a subtle rendition of a classic Stohead handstyle, morphing into a distillation/dissolution on the bottom of the print, announcing Stohead’s current artistic direction (liquid fumes).

The 60 x 60 cm print comes in a limited Regular Edition of 50 prints, signed and numbered by the artist. In addition, Stohead will produce a Special hand-sprayed Edition, in a limited run of 10 prints.

The prints will be available this coming Friday, May 3rd, 2019, at 17:00 on the Urban Spree website and in our Berlin Shop at the same time.

The print is based on a subsequent canvas painted by the artist after he completed the wall. Mother Drucker’s master printer, Dolly Demoratti, has chosen a complex, 9-colour version, to recreate the subtleness of the motive.

Lars Wunderlich: « What Are We Looking For? » Solo Show Opening

Urban Spree Galerie presents « What Are We Looking For? », a solo show of new works by Berlin-based visual artist Lars Wunderlich a.k.a. « Look the Weird ».

The exhibition will kick off during Gallery Weekend Berlin with an Opening on Friday, April 26th, 2019 from 18:30 in presence of the artist.

The exhibition is the outcome of a 3-month Art Residency at Urban Spree.

What Are We Looking For?” is a vertiginous exploration of our tech-dominated and image-centric world. Our global course to an endless progress, always more distant from the natural order, over-leveraging our resources, using ever-expanding technology to achieve a deeper exploration and understanding. But what are we really looking for? And do we understand better?

In this conceptual journey which is an acute exploration of modernity, Lars Wunderlich crafts and paints visual collages, replicates portraits generated by algorithms, and juxtaposes different time elements which generate collisions, distortions and glitches, to better highlight the unreal nature of those representations and the danger thereof.

His paintings bear some similarities with the “New Leipzig School”, albeit with technology at the core, and aesthetics boosted by Artificial Intelligence and modern faux-semblants. They are representations of non-existing representations, real but fake, distorted, whether by time, space, speed, or truth. A perpetual collision of images.

————————————————————-

Lars Wunderlich (b. 1981 in Neubrandenburg, GDR) is a German post-graffiti artist, member of the 9-member street art crew “The Weird” (Nychos, Low Bros, DXTR, Vidam…) under the moniker “Look the Weird”.

Besides spraypainting/wallpainting and graphic design, Lars is an accomplished painter. “What are we looking for?” is his first solo exhibition with Urban Spree Galerie.
