Maggot Heart – Reveal – Sick Horse + Boddinale closing party

A Sick Horse will Reveal his Maggot Heart tonight. Enter this disgusting spectacle, ladies and gentlemen! Step inside and wander among the warm entrails of punk lacerated by dregs of metal, where devils run around in circle pulling each other’s tail. Not for the faint of heart and definitely not for children, hence the late hour. At 12 we dance around the cauldron, drink henbane and shake our bodies until the dawn.

No More Crew: Jan Kal√°b, Pasta Oner, Michal ҆kapa



A strong trio. Grew up together. Long-standing friendships. Shared experience. Rocket engines. Parallel beginnings. Trajectories that have diverged over time, but remain firmly connected, consecrated by the code of graffiti. The No More Crew brotherhood.

An exhibition built around the confrontation of its participants ‚Äď a trio of friends, all distinct figures, and not only in terms of the Czech art scene. The mutual confrontation comes at no risk. Jan Kal√°b, Pasta Oner and Michal ҆kapa are equals. What they share is tenacity, ambition, drive, vigor, audacity, humor, and every now and then also a wall, as well as mutual friends and their common age. What distinguishes them is their approach, form, tools, the venues of their solo exhibitions, the locations of their respective studios, and the number of their children.

With the soul of an architect, Jan Kal√°b easily conquers the third dimension not only in his murals, but also in his canvases. He has grown to embrace the painter within, and although his forte is the creation of objects he has been chiseling away at geometric abstraction, discovering spaces interior and without, regardless of the clich√©d expression ‚Äúthat‚Äôs been done.‚ÄĚ

The same could be said of Pasta Oner. It is possible to cite the clearly visible sources of inspiration, identify the specific paraphrases. Yet one must also take into account the force and accuracy with which he mirrors the conservative Central European mindset. How spot-on is his commentary on the bad habits of consumerism, or the directness with which he tackles the large format through his short post-pop messages.


Michal ҆kapa, by contrast, works with the moment of replication, the multiplication of a graphic element, with a hand patently the descendant of an expert graffiti artist. His style is ornamental, rhythmic, abstract and concrete at the same time. He is the draughtsman of his canvases, the transmitter of symbols, creator of expansive mural-format comics with unsettling subject matter.

The exhibition No More Crew¬†at Urban Spree Galerie presents a trio of disparate and yet splendidly and mutually complementary artists. Their work defies being simply the result of the overused epithet ‚Äúdrawing on street art‚ÄĚ, and at the same time any confrontation with their work requires such a label. Space, place, city, symbol, sign. Something for everybody.



Michal ҆kapa (*1978) alias TRON belongs to the most expressive wave of Czech (Prague) writers with many¬†achievements to his credit. He is engaged in countless graphic activities with the magazines ‚ÄúFree¬†Magazine‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúUpstream‚ÄĚ, ranging from festival visuals, books, CD covers for bands, web design,¬†and the creation of original fonts, to the design of posters and invitations to arts events. His graphics¬†projects of the recent period include Names Festival, Kick the Shit! Bitch!, OBR, the Thick-skinned¬†Moviegoers‚Äô Festival for the Aero Movie Theater, IFP, visuals for the Bigg Boss label, etc. In addition¬†to computer graphics, who also produces drawings and airbrush works. He brings his vivid imagination¬†to bear on graffiti and visual effects. Member of CAP, NUTS, DSK a TOYZ!



Pasta Oner is one of the most original figures on the Czech contemporary art scene. Ever a creative mind, Pasta Oner has, in the recent years and in keeping with his graffiti and street art roots which go back to the turn of the millenium, focused on asserting himself within the system of independent and publicly funded galleries. He weds pop-art to cartoon, transcending both categories.

Although he touches, at the core of his philosophy, on the principles of post-production, Pasta Oner stands apart from the current trend of post-conceptualism and blazes his trail in the Czech art world as a media-savvy and widely known, if slightly controversial artist.

The work of Pasta Oner presents an original, ironic commentary on contemporary popular culture.¬†Pasta Oner‚Äôs traditional themes of obsession with money, sex, religion, luxury goods and the consumerist¬†notions of beauty are translated into new contexts characterised by the technologisation¬†of life, the increasing speed of information and the short attention-span aesthetics of today‚Äôs culture.¬†It is into this world, of which Pasta ‚Äď like all of us ‚Äď is a part, that he brings his engaged art.



When Jan Kal√°b was born in 1978 in Czechoslovakia, graffiti was not to be seen in the Eastern¬†World. In the nineties, as the country was opening itself to western influences, he became one of¬†the pioneer of the local scene, and founded an iconic crew, the DSK. Sleepless nights around train¬†yards, light tubes at police stations and above all hard work on his style: he went through all the¬†classical steps of a writer‚Äôs career. Through Europe, he made a name for himself as Cakes. Next¬†step to the Hall of fame: New York, where he made a big impression by painting whole cars in¬†2000, alongside with Key and Rome. Around the same time, he found a new way to push his own¬†limits and under the name¬†Point, he sculpted and installed huge abstracts letters in the streets and on the walls. This was another form¬†of graffiti, in daylight, and without a spray, but truthful to the spirit of competition and innovation¬†of the urban scene. Those sculptures lead him to abstraction, a path he‚Äôs been exploring through¬†canvas from 2007, using acrylic painting and brushes. In the meantime, this admirer of Kupka¬†graduated from the Academy of fine Arts of Prague ‚Äď becoming the first Czech writer to do so.

Jan Kaláb had his first solo exhibition in 2008 in Prague. Others solos took place in Romania, Argentina, Germany or in the United States.



҆kapa, Kal√°b and Pasta often exhibited together (for example: 2009 ‚ÄďStorage, Prague, The¬†Chemistry Gallery, 2011 ‚Äď Boutique, Prague, The Chemistry Gallery, 2011¬†‚Äď Can You Dig It?, Brussels/Belgium, Pragues House) and they organised¬†shows or met many times together at group shows (2008 – City Celebrities,¬†Brno, Moravsk√° galerie in Brno, 2008 – Names (streetart festival), Prague,¬†Trafacka, 2010 – Metropolis, Shanghai/China, EXPO 2010, Czech pavilion,¬†2010 – Corners, Shanghai, Beijing/China, Source, 2010 – Metropolis,¬†Prague, DOX, 2012 ‚Äď Possessed by the City, Prague, Galerie hlavn√≠ho mńõsta¬†Prahy ‚Äď Mńõstsk√° knihovna).

Dia de los Muertos

DIA de los MUERTOS and TACOS!!

We will have a very Mexican special night with TACOS all the night by Viva Zapata!

Welcome all Mexican skulls faces and terrific people!!


More than 500 years ago, when the Spanish landed in what is now central Mexico, they encountered natives practicing a ritual that seemed to mock death.

It was a ritual the indigenous people had been practicing at least 3,000 years.

A ritual known today as Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.

In Mexico, people visit the cemetery where their loved ones are buried. They decorate gravesites with marigold flowers and candles. They bring toys for dead children and bottles of tequila to adults. They sit on picnic blankets next to gravesites and eat the favorite food of their loved people that is in the other dimension!

glam rock l 80s l pop 80s l 70s l high energy and more!
