TOYwill be exhibiting for the first time in Berlin from 10th to 11th of September 2016 in Zwei Drei Raum, Berlin Kreuzberg. A debut exhibition with large format canvases, installations, video screenings and live music.The opening will take place on Saturday 10th at 18:00.
For this exhibition, Berlin based writers ROZER, IGIT, SPIRIT, LOFK, Viktor Treshkow and Max Grambow have come together to create new ways of experiencing graffiti art. Usually confined to street bombing and train painting, they adapted their own graffiti approach to a gallery setting. The graffiti aesthetics, the illegality of it, the flow and freshness of their style remain and can be felt through their canvases, videos and installations. Ultimately, the viewer should be able to understand the motivations behind
TOY’s actions and grasp the subtlety, humor and honesty of their style. Artists included are among the biggest players of Berlin’s graffiti scene, with crews like TLS, CTM, CMD, TBR, IMK, to name just a few.
TOYrepresents a careless youth, trying to explore adventurous ways of living. The notion of danger builds a strong sense of community and fuels their artistic expression. Their collaboration goes beyond the attempt to be against the system: it is about belonging to a youth movement, a group of friends that gathers together to shape new urban landscapes. It is also about expressing one’s freedom in an over-regulated world. Freedom to navigate in a city, to break rules and create new aesthetics, removed from conventional artistic codes.
