MU #Viralvandals

In forty years, graffiti has grown from a local New York subculture into a worldwide phenomenon with its own heroes and business models. Embraced as urban decoration or buffed by all means, graffiti has escaped a slow death, mainly thanks to the internet. Actions in the real world are increasingly carried out and documented with their digital distribution in mind, leading to refreshing self-reflection and an emphasis on the performative nature of writing.

Don’t tell the taggers, but graffiti has evolved into a mature, varied artform that doesn’t shy away from difficult themes and that combines resistance against repression with a contagious hacker mentality. Meanwhile, the kick of illegality continues to be an important motivation, inextricably linked to kudos and street credibility.??

With #ViralVandals MU presents an exhibition about the second life of graffiti. Going virtually viral will replace the street in the quest for even greater visibility. New forms of expression emerge and the DNA of the scene changes irreversibly. A monument to the international, online graffiti community—young creators and global icons—in Eindhoven.

Participants:
4608 & Fabian Sigurd, Boyscout, Brad Downey, Eewan, Good Guy Boris, Loiq, Mobstr, MOSES&TAPS™, MVIN, Nawas, Nug & Pike, Rage, Sauli Sirviö, TOY Crew, Utah & Ether, Veli & Amos, Zelle Asphaltkultur

Ismerockski pays homage to the aesthetic of the “name” as a alter ego and honours the eternal search for letter solutions. Petro celebrates the life confirming discipline of graffiti writing, with a bag full of unconventional tools, and not a spray can in sight. Through these self imposed restrictions Petro explores sculpture, textiles and mark making in this stupid fresh multi media installation.

One of the UK’s most respected and innovative graffiti writers, Petro is an artist who has been trying to find “solutions to letters and typefaces” since 1984. Pioneering a loose, “buggedout” graffiti practice whilst based in London in the 1990s, this style has not only been frequently emulated but has earned him respect within the most esteemed of graffiti circles. Driven by a desire to investigate and understand form, Petro has gradually transitioned from the street into the gallery, adopting a tireless work ethic which has seen him produce shows almost every three months for the last three years. Visitors to these shows have been witness to an eclectic array of productions; from go-karts to crazy golf courses, from thousands of paper planes to printing with local street food delicacies. What becomes apparent (apart from his Ralph Lauren obsession) is that Petro aims to recapture the essence of youth yet give it a more contemporary perspective. Constantly refusing to take the easy route to success, and instead opting for a struggle which he sees as essential to finding the perfect solution, Petro has created a consistent flow of “conceptually artless art”. It is a practice that transcends mere technique, evolving from an unending process of experiment, entertainment and excess.

Le Fix Gallery, Kronprinsensgade 9B, Copenhagen.
