About the Exhibition
Urban Spree Galerie proudly presents « HARD SHAPED BOXES », the first solo show of EVOL with the galerie.
His production is as rare and precious as his materia prima is common: the cardboards he uses are invisible and soon-to-be-discarded materials. But don’t be mistaken: finding the perfect cardboard for an artwork is a difficult quest, where color, hue, logos and stamps, fractures, accidents and scratches, must align to give birth to his extremely detailed stencils.
If walls could speak, they would tell stories of what once was, stories of buildings, of inhabitants, in these very Berliner « Kiez » that are nowadays so fast remodelled by the unforgiven tempo of construction.
EVOL has had numerous solo and group exhibitions, such as interventions at Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, Pera Museum in Istanbul, Nuart Festival, Palais de Tokyo, Moscow Biennale, MACRO Museum in Rome…
A 6-colour screen print « Blockprint 04 » (now sold out) has been published on the occasion of the exhibition. « Blockprint 04 » is the 4th print in the Blockprint series after 2 runs in 2010 (BP 01 / BP 02) and 1 in 2014 (BP 03).
