Unruly Gallery Presents: Warren Lewis “Words Fail” (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

WArren Lewis

Celebrity Twitter accounts and expensive watches, adverts, rap lyrics, toilet graffiti and famous brands… These are but a few things that inspire the ever-changing styles and messages created by Warren Lewis.

This highly creative artist is in no way bound to any specific medium, which allows him to stay inventive and keep developing fresh ways to communicate with the public.

From the website of Klerkx Art Agency:“Lewis has
a natural knack for creating work that demands attention. His heavily laboured canvases are filled with popular cultural references and challenge the viewer

to make connections between the seemingly unrelated content, a mechanism used in an attempt to represent the true complexity of our culture”.
Klerkx Art Agency has been representing Warren Lewis since 2010.

Don’t miss this new series of extraordinary paintings (small and medium sized) and be the first to see his Toilet Paper Jesus Pieces and the eye catcher of the show: Still Life: The Scrolling Painting.

This is his third solo show in The Netherlands. The Cape Town born (1982) and London based artist will be present at the opening on Friday 10 May.

Images of the Week: 03.03.13

NY weather remains cold/rainy/crappy on the streets still but we actually saw a Street Art tour guide plodding through Williamsburg yesterday pointing out Os Gemeos, El Sol 25, Mr. Toll, and COST paste-ups and telling stories about “beefs” to a handful of cellphone snapping Street Art fans, so Spring must be coming!

By the way, in case you were interested, “The Splasher” identity apparently applies to anyone who splashes paint anywhere today. Remember that dude who was the first “Splasher” and who enlivened many a PBR cocktail party conversation in the late two thousandzies? Remember the outraged manifestos about Street Art years ago – weren’t those wheat-pasted with shards of broken glass? Did he move on to other things? Teaching art therapy? Training sea lions? People magazine should do a “where are they now” story about “The Splasher” right?

Here’s our weekly interview of the street, this week featuring Bast, Blacksheep, Centrifuge, Daan, FRYMS, Hellbent, JM, Joe Iurato, Matthew Deston Burrows, Meer Sau, ND’A, Olek, Saane, Skount, and Young and Sick.

A lot of advertisers have used QR codes on the street to guide you to more “content” if you simply scan them off the poster or billboard with your cellphone. That’s exactly where Street Artist Meer Sau hopes to meet people in this new conceptual piece on the street that ponders how everyday life is completely infiltrated by digital, and how it’s winning our attention from the physical. “I often catch myself walking around and just looking at my f-ing smartphone, checking office mails, typing text messages or just seeing what´s new…instead of keeping my eyes open for the real world – the weather, the people around me, nature …  simply everything,” explains Sau.

“But when I raise my eyes I just see everyone else is doing the same thing – especially the youth – Sitting next to each other, not talking to each other, but using Facebook to contact each other. They are hunting “likes” and judging their friends by their popularity on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram and so on. I’m interested in seeing how far this is gonna go. Actually, I don´t wanna know.” – Meer Sau

Unruly Gallery Presents: Egs Solo Show. (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)


Unruly Gallery is proud to present EGSEgs is the most internationally recognized Finnish graffiti artist. His career started in Helsinki during the late 80s and was part of the country’s first graffiti wave.
His art is an anthropological research into graffiti.
At first Egs searched for every piece of graffiti in his own neighbourhood, then in the rest of Helsinki before heading to meet and paint with like minded writers in all corners of Europe.

The last 25 years he has painted in five continents
and over 40 countries. He has sought inspiration in local graffiti scenes worldwide and collected global graffiti folklore for his own art.“Every wave, star, drip or block I have ever painted can be traced to this attitude of graffiti anthropologist. Every fade is reminiscent of some graffiti that I have seen. Every 3D or bubble has a story to tell. Every piece I’ve done pays an homage to the great graffiti folklore.” -Egs

Egs’ art has been exhibited in galleries and on walls all over the world.
The works in the upcoming exhibition at Unruly Gallery in Amsterdam are inspired by graffiti art in its most distilled form: a name painted in black.

ArTicks Gallery Presents: “Peeta – A Solo Show” (Amsterdam, The Netherlands)



ArTicks Gallery is pleased to announce PEETA – A SOLO SHOW, a solo exhibition consisting of new paintings and sculptures by the Italian artist Peeta.

Peeta endeavours to realize the sculptural quality of individual letters, namely the ones that spell out his own name. Being aware of the Greco-Latin origins of today’s modern alphabet which give it a certain abstract, rather than figural, quality, his task departs from this graphical history to follow the formal methods of Chinese and Islamic calligraphy. With his works, the artist always selects the specific letters “P-E-E-T-A” and breaks them from their generic typographical form, stylizing them with shape and volume beyond their mere semantic function. Thus his lettering is brought into the fluidity of the urban, where words are continuously ruptured from their own histories, readapted into idiom and gestures learned from the street.

And it is this urban terrain that Peeta is always drawn to: street walls, trains, abandoned factories. In a way, his work is record of evolving inscription—not in its traditional sense, but in terms of a fluency acquired through the urban vernacular. Peeta calls this a “geometry of writing”, where the rules are changeable and words are modified, deconstructed and regenerated as they intersect with convention and the new.

Peeta, also known as Manuel Di Rita, has been active as a graffiti artist since 1993 and is currently living in Venice. He is a member of the EAD crew (Padova, Italy), FX and RWK crews (New York City) and has participated in graffiti jams and Meeting of Styles events in Europe and the Americas. His work explores the potential of sculptural lettering, both in painting and in three dimensions. Peeta has exhibited at the Santorini Biennale (2012); Megastore Gallery – The Hague (2007); Magazzini del Sale – Venice (2007-2008); Edgeart Gallery – Manchester (2008); PrettyPortal Gallery – Düsseldorf (2009); Baron Gallery and Ayden Gallery – Vancouver (2010-2011); Da Baker Gallery – New York (2010); and H+ Gallery – Lyon (2011), among many others.

“PEETA – A SOLO SHOW” runs from 10th August – 30th August, 2012
Vernissage: Friday 10th August from 18:00 – 21:30

Entes Y Pesimo Tour Europe

Peruvian Street Artists Entes y Pesimo have been on a tour through much of Europe painting murals in Paris (France), Eindhoven (Netherlands) and Hamburg (Germany).  Figurative and familial, their imagery borrows from more traditional graffiti and community mural styles and often depicts people sheltering and caring for one another.

Entes, Pesimo, Seth and Den. (photo © Entes y Pesimo)

Working together since 2000, the duo pioneered their brand of Street Art in Lima and belong to a larger group of artists in Peru who consider themselves graffiti activists.
