Urban Spree Galerie presents:
Bisco Smith: Journey
Art residency + Solo Show
Opening: 08.03.2018 19:00-23:00
Exhibition: 09.03.2018 – 21.04.2018
Urban Spree Galerie has invited the NYC-based visual artist Bisco Smith (b.1980) for a 3-week art residency at Urban Spree.
During his Berlin residency, Bisco Smith will be creating a whole new body of large scale works that will culminate in a solo show in the galerie from 08.03.2018 to 21.04.2018.
“Journey” will bring the visitor to the universe of Bisco’s largely freestyle and calligraffiti-inspired black-and-white visual beats.
Bisco’s roots lie in music, graffiti, and street art. He works in a variety of formats, including canvas and large outdoor murals, and his style can be characterized as a blend of graffiti deconstruction, gestural abstraction, and lyric-based style writing. Made predominantly with a black and white color palette, his art visually captures the rhythms of music and the energy of the moment through its spontaneous marks and abstracted text.
His work is regularly exhibited in major markets and is collected by both national and international collectors.
