Urban Spree Prints release a new 1UP screen print

« 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.

This highly technical art edition was crafted by Dolly Demoratti (Mother Drucker/Urban Spree Studios) and is released for the closing of the exhibition « One Week With 1UP » at Urban Spree Galerie.

In addition to the regular « Black Smiley » print, we offer 4 variations in a very limited run of 5 prints per edition: gold, chrome, mint, and pink.

The prints are available on the Urban Spree website here.

The screen-print produced for the Opening of the exhibition – « 1UP Letters » – is still available here.



One Week With 1UP: the exhibition

From 09.05.2018 to 27.05.2018, Urban Spree Galerie hosts « One Week with 1UP ».

« One Week with 1UP » is a unique photographic & art project involving the legendary NYC photographer Martha Cooper, the Berlin-based photographer Ninja K. and the Berlin-based, world-famous vandal graffiti crew 1UP (« One United Power »).

The book and the exhibition « One Week with 1UP » forge a unique bond between the most-known documentary photographer of the graffiti and hip hop scenes since the late 1970s and the world’s largest and fearless graffiti crew of the 21st century.

While the show predominantly exhibits photographs, it also shows for the first time art installations and paintings from the crew.

 

Among these, we can mention a stunning triptych painted in situ with a fire extinguisher filled with black acrylic paint – one of the crew’s outdoor signature tools.

 

There is also an impressive wall sculpture compression (« Letters of Power 2.0 ») which is made of thousands of used-in-action spray cans, cut with high pressure water for 24 hours, and covered with thick layers of resin. There are only two similar pieces ever made by the crew: one is on display at the Urban Nation museum in Berlin and the other at Urban Spree Galerie.

The exhibition « One Week with 1UP » represents a unique chance for collectors to acquire original works as well as a historic series of photographs of the crew.

The book « One Week with 1UP » is a unique, behind-the-scenes document and is available at Urban Spree Berlin and online on our webstore.
