Sicoer: Explorations

Urban Spree Galerie presents « Explorations« , the first solo show of the Krakow-based calligraffiti painter SICOER in Germany. « Calligraffiti » is a portmanteau word combining the art of calligraphy with elements of graffiti. It is a non-classical calligraphic discipline, modeled by the street and the parallel practice of graffiti.

« Explorations » is the outcome of several working sessions at Urban Spree Berlin in January, February, and June 2020, interspersed with intense studio time in Krakow during the lockdown, resulting in an unexpected dialogue in time and space.

For this 6-month residency, Sicoer has conducted extensive research and experiments about form and flow, perfecting structure, balance, colors, texture, free flow and ultimately stripping down his technique to the simple expression of one brushstroke, a fragment of the whole universe, a distillation of years of lettering practice.

« Explorations » is the outcome of a spiritual journey through letters. Sicoer has built over time elements of an abstracted language, an ever-morphing alphabet derived from the old Slavic scriptures, rooted in the Eastern part of Europe and universal at the same time.

 

 

Sicoer is a calligraffiti painter based in Krakow well known for his vandal graffiti as well as his handstyle studio works. Having started graffiti in 1998 and still active nowadays, Sicoer created in parallel a studio practice based on the combination of letters, geometric compositions, flow and a specific use of color range. Relentlessly exploring, Sicoer turned recently his graphic experiments towards even more calligraffitic abstraction.

Rylsee’s new monograph « How to Play with Letters » available at Urban Spree

In parallel with his solo show « Other Inbox » at Urban Spree Galerie until Sunday 03.09.2017, the Swiss-born and Urban Spree-based artist Rylsee has just published a new book with Moleskine in Milan.

His first monograph, « How to Play with Letters » is a tour de force in modern typography, illustrating his past 5 years in Berlin with playful, witty & catchy lettering experiments.

For Rylsee, after stations in Geneva and Vancouver, Berlin marked a shift away from his early illustration days to a focus on designing, polishing and scratching letters, a field which is the main focus of this book.

Rooted in graffiti and skateboarding, infused by hiphop, Rylsee’s universe is cool fantasy supplemented by a sharp sense of composition and balance.

His notorious sketchbooks reveal his everyday practice of finding catchy sentences and creating new styles and fonts where letters – unlike the classical art of calligraphy – become glitchy, virused, and melt, albeit always irresistible and funny.

This distorted universe or « dystorpic » as Rylsee would put it – exists by the will of a typographer who blurs the lines of reality and create his own calligraphic spell.

Rylsee recycles his everyday experiences and thoughts and turn them into proverbial low-fi sentences such as « Never trust someone who doesn’t like pizza », « I wish you could be as cute as your profile picture » or « Too shy to rap » to name but a few.

Using only his drawing skills, Rylsee becomes the modern alchemist, plotting numerous optical illusions in 2D to make them look like native 3D. In Rylsee’s universe, 2D and 3D coalesce, but the craftsman, the pen, and the illusion maker takes the lead.

 

Urban Spree Bookshop in Berlin has signed copies of the book.

Signed copies can also be ordered online on our webshop.
