Painted near the back garden of Urban Spree in the Astra/Suicide Club passageway, and most likely to be seen by partygoers getting out from Suicide Circus in the early morning hours, ‘Hangover’s Hot Summer Nights’ is a collaborative piece between Look (Peachbeach/The Weird) and the Low Bros realized in June 2013.
The other half of Peachbeach, Vidam, was in the meantime sketching his piece with Rylsee, a mural that was painted in the next few days in the Urban Spree Artist Wall (covered here).
Urban Spree Galerie will participate to the 3rd Edition of Urvanity Art (28.02-03-03.2019) at COAM in the center of Madrid.
The fair is dedicated to urban contemporary arts and for its first participation to a Spanish art fair, the gallery has designed on 60 sqm a program with 9 artists, mainly based or linked to Berlin, as well as a solo show of works from Hendrik Czakainski.
As for the graffiti part, we are showing photographic works from Martha Cooper/1UP of the acclaimed series “One Week with 1UP”, whose exhibition about the Berlin-based graffiti vandal crew was created at Urban Spree in May 2018 and toured worldwide ever since.
Cpt_Olf is joining the roster as well with an iconic image about the Berlin Kidz/Os Cururu.
Bisco Smith (NYC) and Sicoer (Krakow) will be showing their calligraffiti/handstyle skills, both on canvases as well as on paper, through a series of medium-sized inks.
EVOL is a German artist renowned for his detailed stencils on cardboard, his large installations, and his outdoor works on electric boxes, depicting Berlin cityscapes and houses, Plattenbau, and the constant evolution and fragility of the metropolis.
We will also be showing new works on paper from Marion Jdanoff (the half of of French duo Palefroi) and from Victor Ash, adding some portraits painted by Anthony Lister under the influence of Picasso during his Berlin residency at Urban Spree in September 2018.
Last but not the least, we will introduce 3 new paintings from Lars Wunderlich (a.k.a. Look The Weird) as a preview to his upcoming solo show with the gallery in April 2019.
Please contact the gallery ahead of the fair with any questions or requests you may have.

Music for the lost: HOLYGRAM‘s music blends post-punk and new wave with Krautrock and shoegaze elements into a headstrong, multi-layered and thoroughly contemporary homage to the sound of the 1980s, including a resolute look to the future: driving, dark and full of catchy moments. The wide range of influences of the five band members, who got together in Cologne’s vibrating musical landscape in 2015, are unmistakable: New Order meets NEU!. Their unpretentious approach to their own icons proves that references to the past must always be future-oriented, too. Previously impossible-to-combine elements come together cleverly to become the soundtrack of a city that appears threatening in the twilight.

On the occasion of the release of her debut album “Wǒ Men”
Bonnie Li will throw her release party at Urban Spree on the 14th of Feb!
“In Mandarin ‘wǒ’ means I-myself, ‘wǒ men’ is translated into we-us, and if you skip the space in between it gives you ‘women’, I wanted to play around with that.”
Written over the course of the last year, ‘Wǒ Men’ was arranged with Elia M Sycomor and produced by regular collaborator Paolo Pizzuto in their new home in Berlin, setting the start of a new evolution for the artist.
With the use of further instrumentation and adopting a more Dark-Pop aesthetic, Bonnie Li sees the release as the start of a new beginning for her, experimenting further and moving away from her trip-hop-inspired origins.
“Wǒ Men” looks to be a beacon of coveted thoughts, speaking opinions that you know you shouldn’t, channelling insecurity in a search for yourself. It’s organic, dynamic and fragile, distorted as a mirror to the artist’s emotions and fears, sensitive and dark.
Singer/composer & multi-lingual polymath, Bonnie Li has already been praised by the likes of Clash Magazine EARMILK, Rolling Stone Italia and The Line Of Best Fit.
SEE YOU THERE Beautiful Freaks ♥

Art Bei Ton x Le Pas-Sage is a collaborative event between the Berlin-based event series, Art Bei Ton, mixing electronic music with visual arts, and Le Pas-Sage, a party crew from Paris.
This event is the occasion for us to gather together and create a unique vibe, listing to some great Techno, Ambient and Experimental lives and DJ sets, as well as enjoying visuals with VJing, video exhibition, and visual installation.
For this special occasion, we’ll project the Berlin premiere of the documentary « Sleep Comes Tomorrow » by Jérôme Clément-Wilz, who followed Le Pas-Sage for several months while they were looking for hidden places to organize rave parties.
We’ll also talk about « Rave party: how is the situation today in Paris, Berlin or Japan? » through a 30min panel.
Still focusing on curating an ethic and international line up, we mixed our Le Pas-Sage raver folks from Paris with our Art Bei Ton residents, as well as some great new faces.
On the main floor, we’ll have the pleasure to welcome two live performances from Jessica Kert (zv_k) and Adc-303, as well as Techno sets from Justine Perry, Otoko – 音庫, Mokavenko – MOKKA and Léa Occhi for her premiere in Berlin.
On the 2nd floor, we’ll start with an Ambient set from Vincenzo Albano, followed by Shintaro Yamaguchi, Ones. and Rorschach.
Not only sharing music, but visuals are also playing a big part in this night concept. A VJing performance from Sasha Smirnova will take over the main floor all night long. You’ll also find our unmissable video exhibition on 2000s TV, featuring the work of Lucy Williams, Sig Valax and Melle Skärfstad
Last but not least, a visual installation from ElCid VS will take place in the downstairs room.
