Pieces of a Piece. Que [WUFC] at HL Gallery, Stockholm

To express themselves artistically in public spaces and at the same time not asking for permission, many consider to be the most important aspect of graffiti. If graffiti is not illegal, then it is no longer graffiti. Therefore it is no wonder that the role of graffiti as exhibition art is debated.

Some argue that bringing in graffiti to the galleries encourages criminal activity, while others argue that the graffiti loses its rebellious value when it lands on a canvas. Que started painting in the early 90s and with his crew WUFC, painted thousands of walls and trains worldwide. In 2002 he had an idea, he wanted to create graffiti related art in its rawest form. During eight missions he packed, apart from spray cans and nozzles, canvases and taped them up on seven different trains and a subway station. Some of the works have previously been shown in the book Writers United (2005) and now continues the journey at HL Gallery in Stockholm, Sweden.

Opening on Friday, October 2 at 18.00-21:00. The exhibition runs until 26th October 2015

Most [JBCB] – Hip To Be Square

Since the 90’s the German artist Most is hitting the graffiti scene. Because of his typographic marks in form of tags, throw up’s and pieces on walls and trains in multiple international cities, he gained a lot of attention and respect. Most belongs to the first generation of style writer’s and is an exemplar for the young generation. The conscious step of taking his art into the gallery is a new, exciting challenge for him.

The artist is pushing the boundaries of the traditional graffiti and typography, even he is using their classical tools. He is not interested in copying his urban artworks, nevertheless he aims to stay true to his idea of graffiti writing – his roots – and avoids to drift of into the illustrative/ figurative art. The versatile handling and dissolution of his letters goes along with the artistic process he passed through the last decades. Questions like „Who is Most?“ or „What is Most?“ have always been in his mind and led his urban and materialistic art to new ways as far as to the fusion of graffiti and exhibition product.
