Urban Spree Galerie presents “A Conduit Order”, the first solo show in Germany of the Australian visual artist and muralist Mik Shida.

Mik Shida was invited to Berlin by Urban Spree for a 2-month Art Residency which culminates into a presentation of a full new body of works, including large format paintings, sculptures, and installations.

Shida’s paintings are shamanic “tableaux vivants” in which spiritual, ritualistic and organic elements coalesce, where temporality is transient, boundaries and space indistinct, where portals, alternative dimensions, spells and energy fields abound.

Spirits and movement are the materia prima of Shida’s oeuvre. The artist is a vessel, a conduit, through which sprits awaken, arise, and finally materialize within the paintings, within those transient spaces where the artist is allowed to conduct the dance, and is in turn being directed by the creations his paintings have summoned.

We can also view and understand Shida’s murals as spiritual beacons, large outdoor gateways meant to create an intercession with spirits.
