Opening reception of – IT’s NICE OUTSIDE – tonight at 7pm!

September 11, 2018

20.9. Vernissage // IT’S NICE OUTSIDE

 

Für mich ist Ces53  einer der innovativsten Writer weltweit. Sein unverkennbarer

Style hat Generationen von Writern geprägt und er ist in meinen

Augen eine Legende und Ikone. Bisher hat er sich im kommerziellen

Kunsthandel nicht durchsetzen können, was sicherlich an seiner

Haltung liegt, durch die er sich in erster Linie auf die Kunst selbst

fokussiert und nicht auf das Geschäft.

 

Honet  ist ein Künstler, den ich schon 2006 in der Vicious Gallery das erste

Mal ausgestellt hatte. Seitdem haben wir etliche Ausstellungen und Projekte

gemeinsam realisiert. Ich denke nicht, dass es vermessen wäre, ihn

als eine fest etablierte Größe der europäischen Urban Art Szene zu bezeichnen.

Seine ikonographischen Arbeiten sind unverkennbar und die

Liste seiner Ausstellungen und Kooperationen schier endlos.

 

Besonders freut es mich auch Luke Pelletier  ins Boot geholt zu haben,

im Gegensatz zu den beiden anderen Künstler steht er – aufgrund seines

jungen Alters – noch am Anfang seiner Karriere, die vor allem in den USA

jedoch schon einige beachtliche Erfolge vorzuweisen hatte. Ich müsste

mich schon arg täuschen, wenn Luke in einigen Jahren nicht zu den

einflussreichsten Künstlern seiner Generation gezählt wird.

 Wie immer freuen wir uns auf Ihren Besuch.

Herzlichst,

Dr. C. Tornow

Biography of Rage

Being one of the most outstanding Graffitti Artists from Germany, there is still surprisingly little information to be found. The Artist himself states “It’s not about who I am, but what I do.” Being active in the scene for decades Rage is widely respected in the scene. THE ART OF RAGE is his first exhibition in an art context – certainly it will not be the last.

Biography of Hell’o Collective

Antoine Detaillle (1980) & Jérôme Meynen (1982) are Hell’O. They have created a unique style since their beginnings. After the exclusive use of black and white, color has become progressively essential in their universe. The Hell’O have imagined an enigmatic vocabulary they decline to infinity always surprising. Their paintings are populated with imaginary creatures holding humans or animals that come to life and inspire reflection and wonder. Their world is sometimes allegorical, sometimes esoteric and always treated with finesse, rigor and a distance tinged with humor. We can discover many murals of the duo, orders of public and private institutions, in Belgium, Europe (Spain, Italy, France, Poland …) and the United States.

Biography of EGS

Egs is remarkable not simply because he has painted all over the world. As a self-proclaimed graffiti anthropologist, Egs has been pivotal in the historical documentation and dissemination of the graffiti practice itself: an artist-archivist spurred by an intense desire to explore both the formal and folkloric truths of graffiti, to uncover its deeply social and material foundations. He started out in the mid 1980s as part of the first wave of graffiti in Finland; by 1988 he had travelled to Stockholm and Paris to discover and document their burgeoning scenes. Although he lived in one of the most geographically distant parts of Europe, Egs was fascinated by the regional connections graffiti generated and travel became integral to his life.

Biography of Cleon Peterson

Cleon Peterson is an LA based artist whose chaotic and violent paintings show clashing figures symbolizing a struggle between power and submission in the fluctuating architecture of contemporary society. The imagery of Cleon Peterson is not only strong because of its striking visual quality and its relevance to our world today. Although all too easily associated with the barbaric sectarian violence in the Middle East and escalating excrescence that is the current geopolitical turmoil, it’s also deeply rooted in Western cultural history, from the classic Greco-Roman vases depicting warriors and battles, to the marvelous decapitation paintings of Caravaggio and violent masterpieces of Goya.
