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.
 
ABOUT
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.

BOMB de LUX – Oliw87

BOMB de LUX
 
Oliw87’s Chanel or Die gatukonst började egentligen som ett socialt experiment. Oliw87 har alltid förundrats över den konsumtionshysterin som finns hos många människor, där allt livet handlar om är vad du äger. Han ville se hur folk på Östermalm reagerade om man blandade ihop street art med ett riktigt lyxmärke, Chanel. Reaktionerna var tydliga.
 
“Bratsen älskade det och jag tyckte kontrasten var rolig – lyx kombinerat med stök blir jävligt nice. Som jag stått och flinat åt alla bloggtjejer som posat framför mina verk, bloggtjejer som knappast har fått upp ögonen för annan offentlig konst. Den visar väl lite vem jag är som person också, å ena sådan gillar jag också lyx inom vissa gränser, å andra sidan vill jag ibland bara gå ut och trasha hela stan.. dvs motsatsen till den traditionella ”lyxpellen”. Jag har mina demoner jag fightas med, spelar för båda lagen. Jag älskar mitt dubbelliv!”
 
Wallery upptäckte Oliw87 inför Skandinaviens största gatukonstutställning UMAMI – 5th Taste of Art 2015. Där ställde vi ut den första Chanel or Die tavlan offentligt som såldes innan öppning. Sedan dessa har han sålt kopiöst med tavlor och hans priser har ökat med över 200%. Den senaste tiden har inte bara kändisar som Roy Fares, Peter Forsberg och Pernilla Wahlgren köpt hans konst nu börjar även förfrågningar komma in från övriga Europa!
