… down our street art gallery at Riddargatan 1 in Stockholm and we will pause our gallery business as a physical gallery to at least the beginning of 2020. It has been two great years here at Riddargatan with a lot of good memories and awesome exhibitions together with both Swedish and international artists. But it feel like we have become more like a regular boring gallery than a street art one. Now we have to take some time to come up with something new and fresh! But first we have to charge our batteries.
Thanks to all the artists who have put a lot of effort into their exhibitions and thanks to all the visitors who have dropped by and in some cases bought some great art. If you for a while have thought about buying art from us we strongly recommend you do it now! Because from this week and forward we will start selling the art we have in storage to a discounted price and handle the rest over to the artists.
We will not shut down the gallery completely.
We will still curate artists for commissioned works and we will still help out with collaborations on a low scale. For now we will stop our regular exhibitions but you can still find us online 24/7 where you will still be able to buy what’s left of our Chanel or Die-apparel. We will not have a physical gallery to visit, but you’ll still be able to buy art here on our website throughout October and a very small selection of art in November.
We wish you all a great day!

The Wallery Crew are proud to present the coming solo exhibition Get Lite with french artist and hip-hop dancer Bust the Drip.
Bust the Drip, born in 1983, lives and works in Paris. In 2010 he picked up his first spray can and since then he’s been painting murals and canvases. In addition to his career as a graffiti artist he is also a renowned hip hop dancer and a part of the dance crew Fush Wong.
Movement is always essential to Bust’s expression, whether it’s through dancing or painting. It’s like the vibrations of music animate his art works, and the colours take shape through the frequency of a dancing body. Bust the Drip often mixes different techniques in his paintings such as spray paint, acryl and pencils.
Bust the Drip doesn’t necessarily see himself as a graffiti artist, but rather as an artist whose artistic expression works in symbiosis with the volatility of the spray can. It all started with movement and with movement everything lives on.
The exhibition will contain a selection of newly produced works by Bust the Drip, all of them depicting the movements of fellow dancer: Kieran Warner. During the opening night Bust the Drip and Kieran will also perform a dance battle to a live DJ.
The exhibition will run from 16/10 to 12/11 and start of with an opening night on the 16th at 17:00 (5 p.m). Everyone is welcome to come to the opening night, but don’t forget to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org

After inviting the french artist and hip-hop dancer Bust the Drip to come and paint the terrace bar at Clarion Hotel Arlanda earlier this year, the time has come for his solo exhibition Art of Movement at Wallery. Bust’s artistry circles around movement and not just movement of the body, but capturing the intricate moves and waves of a body and expressing them through art. The paintings and drawings produced for the exhibition depicts the movements of a fellow dancer, Kieran Warner, who will be performing a dance battle together with Bust the Drip during the opening night.

As the November cold sweeps through Stockholm we’ll be showing Vegan Flava’s suitingly somber art in a solo exhibition. Vegan Flava’s work concerns how culture, norms and identity affects the environment, animals and ourselves. By painting nature, animals and humans stripped down to the bones and roots he also strips away every layer of identity. The skeleton becomes a symbol of the common, of the sameness we share.
What? Solo exhibition with artist Vegan Flava
When? 13/11-11/12 with an opening night 13/11

A BRONX LEGEND
Wallery presenterar med stolthet den legendariska graffitikonstnären Cope2s verk i soloutställningen A Bronx Legend. Tidigare har Cope representerats i städer som New York, Paris och Tokyo och nu har turen äntligen kommit till Stockholm. Utställningen kommer bestå av utvalda verk från Cope2s konstnärskap där han lekfullt utforskat graffiti som uttryckssätt och medium. Den 27/4 kl. 18.00-00.00 öppnar utställningen med vernissage på Riddargatan 1 och pågår sedan till den 25/5. Öppettider för utställningen är tisdag – fredag 11.00-18.00 och lördag 12.00-17.00.
Efter sex år i branschen är Wallery stolta över att presentera sin första utställning med en internationell världsstjärna: Cope2. Wallery har sedan starten varit pionjärer för street art inom gallerivärlden och representerat namn såsom Oliw87, Circle, JAG, Huge och Bates. Cope2, eller Fernando Carlo som är hans födelsenamn, föddes 1968 i Bronx, New York. Ända sedan 80-talet har Cope2 prytt staden med sina ikoniska throw-ups och med tiden kommit att betraktas som en förgrundsgestalt inom den amerikanska graffitirörelsen. Tillsammans med kusinen och tillika graffitikonstnären Chico80 var han med och skapade crewet Kids Destroy, som senare bytte namn till Kings Destroy då Cope dubbade sig själv till konung över New Yorks graffitiscen.
Med en estetik som både är direkt och lekfull är det lätt att förstå hur Cope har lyckats ta sig till toppen – och varför han är där för att stanna. Cope har konsekvent behållit sin omisskännliga stil i nästan 40 år och blivit en av de mest kända namnen inom street art-scenen. Under alla år har han dessutom fortsatt att måla väggar världen över, parallellt med de verk han flitigt producerat och ställt ut på namnkunniga gallerier såsom The Showroom Gallery i New York. Utöver sin verksamhet som graffitikonstnär har Cope samarbetat med en mängd olika välkända märken såsom Adidas, Footlocker och Converse.
När: 27e April

A BRONX LEGEND
Wallery proudly presents the new solo exhibition A Bronx Legend with selected works from world famous graffiti artist Cope2. Cope has previously been represented in cities such as New York, Paris and Tokyo and now it’s finally Stockholm’s turn to enjoy his playful pieces. The grand opening of the exhibition will be at Riddargatan 1 on the 27/4 at 6pm-12pm and the exhibition will close on the 25/5. Wallery’s regular opening hours are Tuesday – Friday 11am-6pm and Saturdays 12am-5pm.
After six years in the business the Wallery crew are very proud to present their first ever exhibition with an international superstar: Cope2. Wallery has since the beginning been pioneers for street art in the gallery world and previously represented talents such as Oliw87, Circle, JAG, Huge and Bates.
Cope2, or Fernando Carlo as is his birth name, was born in 1968 in Bronx, New York. Ever since the eighties you’ve been able to spot his iconic throw ups all around his native city and all around the world. Together with his cousin and graffiti artist Chico80 he co-created the crew Kids Destroy, later renamed Kings Destroy as Cope dubbed himself king of the New York graffiti scene. With time Cope has come to be recognized as one of the most prominent figures of the American graffiti movement, and with an aesthetic both direct and playful it’s easy to understand why he’s at the top – and why he’s there to stay.
Cope has for almost 40 years kept his unmistakable style and always kept painting walls all over the world, while also producing and exhibiting works for renowned galleries such as The Showroom Gallery in New York. In addition to his work as a graffiti artist Cope has through the years made numerous collaborations with brands such as Adidas, Footlocker and Converse.

The artistic journey started after she was winning a major art competition when she was just four and a half years old which resulted in that her winning design being printed onto Christmas cards and sold in retail stores right across the country.
– Art was a subject I’d always felt passionate about while growing up and was always encouraged to pursue. I continued practicing the craft right through to my early teenage years which was when I first started to sell the painted portraits.
Over the years her artworks has transformed from fine art painting, to character based aerosol art and digital illustration. The artwork has been shown across London in many forms and has even been showcased inside the walls of Europe’s most visited gallery, The Tate Modern.
I have immersed myself into the London street art scene, creating murals across every borough in London. I have collaborated and worked with a wide range of audiences from private commissions to large companies and brands, to paint murals, live designs at events and installations. I have also hosted three successful art shows collaborating with other well-known international street artists in central and east London. My work has not been restricted to London, I have also worked across the UK and internationally including Miami Basel, Paris, Germany, Demark, Italy and Greece to name a few.
Tell me a little bit of your style:
– For my latest project my style is evolving to infuse some of the more traditional painting techniques as seen in my early days as a fine artist with my now well recognized cartoon style sprayed ‘In Bloom”. The coming together of these two forms sees realism and cartoon uniting in a fusion of bold, bright colours and uses multiple techniques.
On my forth return trip to Sweden I am honoured and excited to be hosting my First Solo International Art Show at Wallery which will see the official launch of my new style project ‘PAINT by NATURE’.
Address: Riddargatan 1 in Stockholm

MAKE GRAFFITI BAD AGAIN är den alternativa Nationalmuseum-utställningen.
Samtidigt som Nationalmuseum öppnar upp på nytt och visar upp sina nationalklenoder visar vi upp ett gäng nationalklenoder som graffitilegenden Circle har målat över med graffiti.
Den första ReCircle utställningen ägde rum ovanför Nosh & Chow i September 2014, och såldes slut samma kväll. Den 13e oktober är det dags igen att få se och även kunna lägga beslag på en bit gatukonsthistoria från en av graffitisveriges mest intressanta gatukonstnärer Circle.
Circle är en av pionjärerna inom graffitiscenen i Sverige, och är en av de största och mest respekterade genom tiderna. Circle är den ende graffitimålaren i Sverige som har gjort en fasadmålning sk mural som idag är K-märkt, “Fascinate” i Bromsten, Spånga. Fasadmålningen skapade Circle som 17-åring sommaren 1988 tillsammans med polaren Wierd (Tariq Saleh)
Många påstår att graffitin tappar sin identitet och kraft när man tar in den från gatan till galleriet. Kom gärna förbi vår öppning den 13e oktober så ska vi bevisa er motsatsen.
OBS! För er som gillar gammal konst och värnar om den då rekommenderar vi istället nyöppnandet av Nationalmuseum denna dag.

Wallery proudly presents:
BRAWE NEW WORLD by DALE GRIMSHAW (UK)
The first time we got in touch with Dale Grimshaw was through our best friend Fredrik Sanabria who have known Dale for years. During our joint event Ofientliga Rummet we invited Dale to Stockholm and that was the start of one of the best cooperation’s with an international street artist Wallery have had during the past years. When Dale was in Stockholm during Ofientliga Rummet not did he just create one but two wonderful murals. One is still left for everyone to experience in the lounge at Scandic Klara at Slöjdgatan in Stockholm. Dale have also been a part of Umami – 5th Taste of Art, the Magnus Samuelsson dinner at Umami and KvadrArt – 2017. He sold out all of his artworks during all these events before they were over. That is a recognition of how much the swedes love Dales art. With a huge amount of murals all over UK and Europe and over 20 K followers on Instagram the international interest for Dale is big and growing.
– To have a Dale Grimshaw solo exhibition at Wallery in Stockholm is more than a dream come true says Jmmie Hall owner of Wallery.
Dale Grimshaw was born in Lancashire, in the North of England. During a difficult childhood, his drawing and painting became extremely important to him. He developed his skills at college, firstly with an Art Foundation course at Blackburn College and later he studied fine art to degree level at Middlesex University in London.
Dale has a successful gallery career. He has had five solo shows in Signal Gallery, London and numerous group shows including those Berlin, Paris, New York, Stockholm and Rome. His shows have been widely recognised in the press and online. Articles written about have been published in The independent newspaper, Juztapoz magazine and Art Of England Magazine.
More recently he has been devoting time to street murals and has been widely recognised as one of the most powerful and talented of street artists on that scene. Over the past five years he has been invited to festivals nationally and internationally as well as painting many iconic walls across London, where he lives.
Dale’s work is boldly figurative and is inspired by his strongly held humanitarian beliefs. However this political message is always achieved by an emphasis on powerful direct emotions and a deep empathy for his subjects.
