Farbzüge: A Photobook on Berlin graffiti

IMG_3894The photographer Emmett E. from Berlin has been documenting graffiti on S-Bahn trains in the past years.

The result is a 144 pages self-published photobook that comes in a limited edition of 250 hand-numbered copies.

There are three different book covers with the regular edition coming out with the yellow stickers that the train drivers affix to the wagons in order to signal that a wagon needs to be cleaned after some graffiti action as well as to prevent graffiti writers to take clean photo shoots of their deeds.

Alternatively, 25 copies come with a blue sticker on the cover (“Wagen nicht geheizt” / “Car not heated”) and 25 with a red one (“Tür Störung” / Door malfunctioning).

The book is available at Urban Spree in Berlin and on the webstore here but in limited quantities.

About the Artist:

Bisco Smith’s roots lie in music, 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.

His work is regularly exhibited in major markets and is collected by both national and international collectors.

“Journey” is his first solo show in Germany

Hza Bažant: NUSLE Exhibition and Book Release

Urban Spree Galerie is proud to introduce the new series of screen printed illustration works by Prague-based artist Hza Bažant as well as the exclusive german book release of “Nusle“, based upon the Czech artist’s impressive graphic saga. Nusle is a limited edition, self published artist book released in Germany by Urban Spree on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition at Urban Spree Galerie (03.09 / 12.09.2015).

Nusle is originally a large scale graphic cycle, consisting of individual large screen prints (70 x 100 cm) on textured & colored paper, on which stencils and spray paint have been applied to create subtle, metallic, largely fluorescent color effects and blurred lines.

The series started with 4 images based around the central character of the story, Mirek, prostrated along track lines, amidst chaotic elements.

As years passed, the artist has been adding each year new images to the series. The series itself involves different colors of papers and different inks/paint tones so each series has a different outcome.

Today, the series consists of 14 images, creating a ever expanding universe and narrative. When juxtaposed, the series achieve a panorama of 140 cm x 700 cm.

In 2015, the artist has published Nusle as a book format. The book contains 34 separate sheets which also work as a minimal approach to the large scale print series.

Deeply rooted in Prague and czech culture, each image consists of surreal images of scenes depending on a number of seemingly unrelated, dreamlike stories, but in fact deeply intertwined. Individual images are rich scenes full of symbols, taking place in the backdrop of the urban periphery, which represents the peripheral areas of the mind.

All stories are told without words, by associations, symbols, and common features. This method is chosen with the intention to provide the reader with the greatest possible freedom of interpretation. The reader is author’s partner; he may create his network of relationships between individual characters of the story. Thus, it is possible to return to the book and read a different story each time.

Discovery of a new layer of meanings becomes an adventure similar to the exploration of the abandoned corners in an unfamiliar city, where discarded artifacts may create a mosaic of life stories of those who left them behind. It does not matter whether the story happened or could happen; its formation is more about us than about protagonists of the story. As literature uses words to form images, in this case we are using images to build a story. The concept of the Nusle project is based on a free play of imagination stimulated by rich visual perceptions.

The book (regular and deluxe edition) will be available at the Galerie during the exhibition and after the show while stocks last. You can find it in our webstore here.
