VAO Collective at Urban Spree

Urban Spree Galerie invites 10 artists of the VAO collective for an exceptional Art Residency in Berlin.

Counded in 1996 by L’Atlas, the collective is celebrating this year 20 years of urban and contemporary creation.

vao_collectif_logo-copie

Rooted in graffiti and street art at its inception (« Vandales à l’Origine »), the members of the collective have spread their art in different directions over the years, gaining recognition in the art world while maintaining strong links to the street practice that still define them, from abstract calligraphy and graffiti, « calligrammes », land art, to minimalism and expressionism.

The Art Residency at Urban Spree is not a retrospective but an exceptional occasion for the artists to work together during a week and redefine what the essence of the collective is about. The exhibition will also introduce the latest member of the crew, the Torino-based minimalist artist CT, who joined the collective in October 2016.

All artworks will be created in situ, in the gallery, on the walls and in the garden during this unique period.

The public is welcome to witness the Residency work-in-progress everyday from November 14th to 17th which will culminate into the Opening on November 18th at 19:00.

On the occasion of the residency, Urban Spree will edit a series of exclusive screen prints with L’Atlas, Tanc and CT, hand-pulled in the screen print studio at Urban Spree.

 

Participating VAO Artists:

 

ALETEIA

Emilie Garnaud a.k.a Aleteïa, is a French artist who mostly uses sticky tape and spray cans for her works. She defines her work as an urban mythological laboratory, where she collects stories and words. She uses a symbolic and universal language and leads a dialogue which permits her to question anything.

L’ATLAS

Jules Dedet Granel, aka L’Atlas, is a French artist born in 1978. He began doing graffiti in the early 1990s before co-founding the VAO Collective (« Vandales à l’Origine ») in 1996 with Elger and Koers.

Fascinated by the history of handwriting, he has studied calligraphy in several countries and designed his own typography. He frequently works in public spaces and has become a major figure of the Street Art movement. He has also developed a pictural universe, where he leads the written word towards calligraphic abstraction. His style has made him one of our time’s most interesting young artists, moving from the instant and public forum of street art into prestigious art galleries and progressive art spaces.

He lives and works in Paris.

BABOU

Babou is an iconic figure in street art and is a graffiti activist in Paris since 1985. Sculptor and urban artist, his practice focuses on the atmosphere and the gesture of the tag. His images seek to recreate the energy and movement of the street, using the city walls as canvas and transforming them into images that question the contemporary Dasein.

BENJAMIN LAADING

Benjamin Laading creates a fresh vision of graffiti with his technical repetition of dots. It celebrates accidentality, degradation, and vandalism, all these undesirable manifestations which disturb the monotony of a functional and controlled environment. His work is like a window between two worlds, which reflects an inner conflict between instinct and reason, which is present in every one of us.

CLYDE KNOWLAND

Clyde Knowland finalized a painting technique halfway between calligraphy and drawing. His very gestural work tends to reproduce in an almost abstract way what he calls « an urban jungle » and its energy. Sometimes totems or tribal figures come out of his paintings as buildings and skyscrapers, to give life to these chaotic and inhuman landscapes.

CT

For over a decade, CT has been internationally active with urban art projects. His style has transitioned from a classic graffiti wild style into contemporary minimalism. Working in abandoned and lost spaces, CT searches for the perfect canvas that has the potential to create a contrast from his minimal mark. Graffiti minimalism, a deconstructed form taken to its most basic embodiment while still maintaining its initial concept of letter structure.

PAROLE

Parole is a self-educated artist whose work is multi-faceted, at the crossroads of culture, and draws upon the use of many skills and tools. He developed spontaneous writings where he twists, reforms, and mixes up the letters enough to make them illegible. There are spiritual and sacred feelings and meanings in these writings and in its relationship with art and with life.

SUN7

Born in 1977. Jonas Bournat a.k.a. SUN 7 lives and works in Paris. He is obviously a child of crossing of word and image, poetry and color, art and street. His art consists of portraits and coded texts creating a subtle play of appearance/disappearance, in which everything related to calligraphy, glyphs and ideograms becomes as unreal as can be, nurturing a sense of mystery. Jonas Sun7’s work has appeared in numerous exhibitions and art fairs since 1997. His work has been exposed in places such as Grand Palais, Fondation Cartier, Espace Louis Vuitton and Palais de Tokyo in Paris.

TANC

Tancrède Perrot aka Tanc is an abstract graffiti artist who lives and works in Paris. His unique art is about lines, vibrations and repetition. His work is a mix of tags, of individuals, of music which do not seek perfection, but spontaneity. He is part of a new generation of street artists who are exploring the crossroads of graffiti, action painting and optic art. He is able to touch the viewer in an intimate and immediate way through his action and energy.

TEURK + ANTONIN VOISIN

Teurk is a French artist who belongs to a distinct group of graffiti artists that emerged around 1990. He develops a very special work: he creates objects, videos, sculptures by mixing art and science. Among other things, he makes metal plates which are inscribed by a grinder, calligraphy which is made out of iron dust and videos which show the organic manipulation of magnets.

VALERIE NEWLAND

Born in 1975. Lives and works in Paris and New Caledonia. Under her classic influences, she was able to discover different media and the city under an other angle. She evolved in her work of plastic art because of her curiosity and her willingness to understand the energy of other disciplines. She has a minimalist approach and it is the moment of seizure of the space, the canvas, the fluid structure, that attracts her more than the paintbrushes.

Urban Spree Galerie in Paris 22-24 April 2016

From April 22nd to April 24th 2016, Urban Spree Galerie will participate to the first Urban Art Fair in Paris alongside a roster of 30 international urban arts galleries.

IMG_4310

The artists of the gallery have a strong street practice, and are (with a few exceptions) living and working in Berlin, a city celebrated for its artistic cosmopolitism and strong urban arts DNA.

The artists presented by the gallery for the Urban Art Fair represent a new generation of street artists, whose imaginary is often rooted in comics, video games and remix culture (Mafia_Tabak), who deconstruct graffiti towards abstraction (Kid CashMik ShidaMichal Škapa), who create whole imaginary cityscapes (Hendrik Czakainski), paint delicate huge murals (Twoone) or build tiny elements (Joshua Smith) but also well-known pioneers such as ABOVE.

In addition to his masterpiece « 120.630 » – exhibited for the first time in Paris – Hendrik Czakainski will also exhibit a sculpture in the public area of Le Carreau du Temple.

Matthias Gephart: Rare Shots On Planet X

Urban Spree proudly presents “Rare Shots on Planet X – The Disturbanity Book” – an exuberant solo exhibition and book presentation by german artist Matthias Gephart.

12321329_1121888391176567_5810168556477288473_n

The Berlin-based artist, whose spectrum ranges from graffiti and typography to collage, illustration and photography, combines this variety of disciplines in a virtuoso manner. The continous fusion of art and life is programmatic here in the graphic melting pot named Disturbanity.

The monograph retraces punk and graffiti and their mutual impact as significant inspirations which extends the artist’s personal story to an assemblage of alternative and attitude, of urban subculture and DIY.” (Annika Hirsekorn, Neurotitan Galerie)

Matthias Gephart’s monograph “Rare Shots on Planet X – The Disturbanity Book” is a journey through 25 years of visual creation. The show will present its content to the Berlin audience for the first time on a large-scale level. Self-financed via crowdfunding, released by publishing house Kettler at the Frankfurt book fair in 2015 and awarded by New Yorks art and design magazine Creative Quarterly, the limited edition book is available at Urban Spree and will be signed for you by the artist at the vernissage evening.

In a positive way: Overkill!” (Andreas Löhr, Fliehende Stürme)
