‘Off the wall’ is opening today

‘Off the Wall’ at Lauritz.com, Carlsberg, Copenhagen

As as follow-up to the our exhibition ‘Streets of Copenhagen – street art meets graffiti’, we’ve joined up with the auction house Lauritz.com and put together a new show / auction, which kicks off today with a massive vernissage and ends up at the end of next week.

We’ve gotten our hands on a sparking white room and… wait for it…fucked it up with a lot of colours: pieces on the walls here and there and everywhere (and true to style down the hallways, too (schh, don’t tell).

The group is well represented once again. We’ve got Bates, Soten, Poet, Great and Teiser on all kinds of crazy graffiti styles and Basco5, Miss Take and Don John representing street art… And I am personally represented in collabo pieces with Bates, Soten, Miss Take and Don John…

As a special extra little thing, Soten and I have made a collabo piece, wherefrom all proceeds go to the support center for female prostitutes in Copenhagen ‘Reden’.

Please come and join us Friday Feb 10th from 5 to 9 pm or Saturday Feb 11th from 12 to 4 pm – and go to lauritz.com and see if you can get lucky and get your hands on a masterpiece at a good price (:

Copenhagen, February, 2012

Location/Adress:
Pasteursvej 54 (Carlsberg)

Opening today at 17-21.00!

FREE PIZZA
Free admission!

“Dansk gadekunst” review

Photo from danskgadekunst.dk
Information posted a review of the new book “Dansk gadekunst“.

Selv om der måske kunne være redigeret mere i enkelte af teksterne, så er bogen på det overordnede plan ikke spor uredigeret og derfor også meget vellykket. Hatten af for at Lasse Korsemann Horne vælger at lade Rasmus Poulsens 10 år gamle hyldest til gadekunsten (delvist på bekostning af graffitien) og Jan Danebods nutidige tilsvining af samme (med en klar forkærlighed for graffitien) danne ramme for bogen. Det er fremragende set. Og det er en ramme, der af og til spilles op imod. For eksempel i artiklen om undergrund, men også i portrættet af gadekunstneren Kissmama. Han fortæller, at han er begyndt at hænge op i indre by, »så turisterne kan tage billeder og oploade dem til deres Flickr-account« og dermed sikre ham større udbredelse. Netop denne overordnede ramme kombineret med det nøgterne sprog og den komplette samling af portrætter sikrer, at ‘Dansk gadekunst’ bliver en succes.

Information also posted a related article containing a little chat with Jan Danebod.

»Der er ikke noget tilbage. Det er ren billedflade. Det er penge og papir og pis og lort. Og rigtig lidt indhold.«
Det er sådan kunstneren Jan Danebod, der selv har dekoreret Københavns gader med gadekunst i mange år, betegner street arten i dag.
