It is with proud Wallery presents the goup exhibition:
It all started when Dopie contacted us and wanted to be a part of the Ofientliga Rummet 2015-2106. He made an aweseme mural and we started to represent him here in Sweden. After that Wallenstam wanted to have a huge mural in Hallonberger for Umami Park and for the first KvadrArt exhibition Umami – 5th Taste of Art. We aksed Dopie direct but the mural was 12×30 meters se Dopie wanted to bring his friend Klaas Lageweg. And the result of that you stil can see in Hallonbergen. It’s the biggest mural just outside of Stockholm that we have even today. The year after Bosmaus was getting in tuch with us and presented his unique style and we suddelnly had three Dutch artist to work with and represent here in Sweden.
Now after working together in three years we thought it was a great time to exhibit this three artist at the same time in the gallery. All of them have sold a lot of artworks from us during this year so it will be nice to see what you think of the exhibition.
As a visual artist, I create murals and paintings. Art is my means to function autonomously in this society. Creating and developing causes me to experience conflict, euphoria, disappointment and pride. In other words: paint keeps me going. I follow my instincts and intuition – in doing so, I get to turn my ideas into reality. My focus is always on the end result. As I find inspiration in my day-to-day environment, my work generally contains an observational outlook. In combining seemingly opposing forms, such as realism, pixel art and abstractions, I am always pushing the boundaries.
A graffiti artist/painter/illustrator currently based out of Belgium. He was classically trained as a graphic designer but he’s a self-taught painter and graffiti artist with a real penchant for the surrealistic qualities of fantasy worlds beyond our own. His artworks represent and characterize people´s dreams, grief, happiness or luck. Philip not only creates a world he can escape in himself but also gives the spectator the possibility to disappear from daily life for a moment by looking at his works that carry a strong use of color and imagination in them. Philip is as talented with digital art as he is on canvas or concrete, constructing seemingly endless numbers of logotypes, and has won numerous awards, most notably the uber-prestigious Macworld UK Digital Artist of the Year Award 2011 for his work entitled “Origins of the Species”. He has exhibited in solo and group shows in Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Belgium, Washington, Chicago.
Dopie (b. 1983) has been a well-known artist in the Dutch graffiti scene for over twenty years. Inspired by the throw-ups on the subway cars in his hometown of Amsterdam, he started exploring his artistic talents, painting his Dopie moniker on concrete walls and trains. Wanting to push his boundaries, he started practicing elaborate characters a few years later. This led to the development of his characteristic photorealistic style. Nowadays, Dopie’s work is a well-balanced mixture of realism and more traditional graffiti. He is especially known for his use of bold colours and his remarkable depiction of a wide variety of animals. Since 2004, Dopie has been able to turn his art into a career. His work can be found in many places both domestically and abroad as well as several books and magazines.
We hope to see you all at the opening the 13th of Mars and please help us spread the word and invite all your friend who need some new art on their walls but also who haw to come out and experience something different!
