On the occasion of the exhibition “Metamorphosis” at Urban Spree Galerie in Berlin, Tavar Zawacki and Urban Spree release a series of exclusive screen prints.
“Pulse” comes as a limited edition of 40 sets (1 Pulse Left + 1 Pulse Right) in a 45 x 60 cm format (18″ x 24″).
The regular edition is complimented by a very limited run of 5 large print sets, in gold and silver.
The prints are available at Urban Spree in Berlin and on the Urban Spree website here.
The 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.
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.

Berlin’s most adventurous and skilled urban photographer, Cpt.Olf – whose maiden exhibition “Cpt.Olf x Paradox 16-19” was with Urban Spree Galerie last October – is now being featured in an 8-minute documentary filmed by the urban magazine Tracks (arte). The reportage is in French or German.

“Keep Smiling” is a 14-colour screen print based on the most iconic photograph of the Martha Cooper exhibition “One Week With 1UP” in a limited edition of 100 hand-pulled screen prints.

Urban Spree Prints is happy to announce the release of “Navigations“, an 18″ x 24” one-color screen print hand-pulled at the Urban Spree Studios by Dolly on the occasion of “Journey“, the 3-week Berlin residency and solo show of Bisco Smith.

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
