Bisco Smith designs 2 exclusive t-shirts and hoodies for Urban Spree.
Following his Residency in Berlin earlier this year, the Brooklyn-based calligraffiti artist adds his signature handstyle to our Artist Series.
The series is limited to a run of 50 hoodies and 50 t-shirts only.
They are manually screen printed in-house at Urban Spree in Berlin.
The back motive reads « Urban Spree » in a complex, free flow handstyle which is the trademark of the American artist, while the front medallion represents a simplified version of the motive – also called « throw-up ». The black hoodies and t-shirts are printed with a gunpowder shimmering water-based grey ink.
The Urban Spree Artist Series is a limited edition of screen printed calligraphic t-shirts and hoodies in collaboration with graffiti and visual artists.
The series will be available on our website on Thursday, November 29th at 12:00 (noon) NYC time and 18:00 in Berlin.
Bisco Smith’s solo show « Journey » will be on display until 21.04.2018 at Urban Spree Galerie.
The NYC-based visual artist has spent a 3-week residency at Urban Spree prior to the opening of his show. During his stay in Berlin, he created a whole new series of works on canvas, inks on paper and some installations.
“Journey” brings the visitor to the universe of Bisco’s largely freestyle and calligraffiti-inspired black-and-white visual beats.
Bisco’s roots lie in hip hop, graffiti, and street art. He works in a variety of formats, including canvas and large outdoor murals, and his style can be characterized as a blend of graffiti deconstruction, gestural abstraction, and lyric-based stylewriting. Made predominantly with a black and white color palette, his art visually captures the rhythms of music and the energy of the moment through its spontaneous marks and abstracted text.
We will be releasing an exclusive hand-pulled 18″ x 24″ screen print made at Urban Spree on Wednesday, March 14th at 12:00 (noon) NYC time and 17:00 German time.
