Das Graffiti-Magazin Nr. 1 aus Berlin

Ausstellung: Metroidz


Urban Spree presents: Metroidz

Am Samstag, den 28. Februar 2015, findet ab 19 Uhr im Urban Spree die Metroidz Vernissage statt. Der französische Künstler NIKLOS malt U-Bahnmotive – unter anderem nach Bildern von ROZA, POET, QUIS, BAS2, LEROY, ROGER, STEREO und TIN.

Die Ausstellung läuft anschließend noch bis 20. März weiter. Urban Spree ist täglich 9-20 Uhr geöffnet.

For its first show of the year, Urban Spree Galerie has asked 20 top-of-the-line Berlin graffiti writers to customize a screen print based on a Berlin imaginary cityscape featuring the U-Bahn.

The drawing was designed by French artist Niklos and screen printed by Dolly Demoratti in her Urban Spree studios in an edition of 2 colors, black and ‘yellow U-Bahn’ on 270 gsm archival paper, in a large 100 x 70 cm format.

Against this backdrop, French photographer Thorfine, curator of the show, has asked 20 Berlin-based & still active graffiti writers to be part of the adventure and freely project their art and vision on the drawing.20 artists, 20 prints, 20 visions of Berlin.

The resulting line-up is one of the strongest Berlin has to offer:
Fach – Trik – Spirit – Roza – 1UP Crew – Poet – Fino – Quis – Tour -Shade -Bas2 – Chika – Igid – Inka – Leroy – Roger – Pesd – Eshok -Stereo – Tin

The Metroidz series can be viewed as a historic slice of the Berlin subway graffiti culture of the past decade as well as a strong artistic manifesto for Berlin style writing, in a format never attempted before.

The 20 prints will be presented on Saturday, February 28th, 2015 at the Urban Spree Galerie, with 3 additional A/P prints hand painted by Niklos himself.

Niklos will draw directly on the gallery walls to create an original scenography for the print show.

The regular, 2 color edition print series will also be available at the galerie in a limited run of 20 prints.

Exhibition curated by Thorfine, supported by Montana Cans and The Grifters.
