Moses & Taps™ are currently the most prominent players of an artistic genre which is so current that it has no fixed name as of today; Urban Art, Post-graffiti, conceptual and performance art – everything is right and nothing fits.
The artistic careers of Moses & Taps™ began independently of each other in 1994. In 2007 Moses and Taps founded the artist collective Topsprayer™. In 2011 their first book International Topsprayer™ was published, and to date it is the best-selling German graffiti book available. In 2014 they published the limited photo book Same Same™, which sold-out in hours after release. Their productions and compilations are in strong contrast to the innocent and pleasing street-art-chic these days. Such productions like “The Painted Door” in which a train door is overpainted and reappears on an another part of the train and “The Wall™” – the bricked up train door – are known to everyone. Following the exhibitions in Paris, San Francisco and the The Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany last year, the title Corporate Identity™ for their first solo exhibition in 2016 could not have been more appropriate.
In their exhibition Corporate Identity™ which will take place in the Golden Hands Gallery in Hamburg, Moses & Taps™ will show a cross section of its current series as part of their corporate design. For obvious reasonsMoses & Taps™ can not be officially present at the vernissage.
Le Fix Gallery in Copenhagen just released some limited edition prints and artworks by NUG on their site. Some really fresh prints in editions of only 10 pieces and also a few copies of a limited edition of the book “NUG I am just trying to be nice”, signed and numbered by the artist. They are shipping worldwide so go check their site out: www.lefixgallery.com.
Upon first view seemingly arbitrary bits form a mosaic of moments, leaving the viewer with a lust for something that is hard to grasp. Tissue Magazine joining forces with team Flight Mode, we are proud to present a brand new and exclusive video by artist Dan Künzler, who discloses a collage of his observations. We love seeing people strolling around, trespassing, exploring and taking action, especially if its as visually appealing as this. Tense, awkward but simultaneously easy on the eye.
Le Fix Gallery proudly presents NUG first solo show in Denmark. Opening Thursday the 18th of February from 18:00 – 20:00. Bring your friends and swing by for fresh art and cold beers!
NUG is a Swedish artist and graffiti writer active since the late eighties and he graduated from Konstfack in 2008. The show “I am just trying to be nice” emanates from his book with the same title and gives us a glimpse into NUG’s voluminous practice. From large abstract spags to, traditional graffiti lettering and controversial video and photography works and sound collages.
The exhibition shows a selection of new and old works and also includes the last 50 copies of the book. The book covers will be hand painted by the artist just like the 50 first copies was at the release three years ago. The exhibition ends April 2, 2016. WWW.LEFIXGALLERY.COM
