Smash137 show "Lost & Found" @ Speerstra Gallery

L'artiste bâlois Smash 137 présente sa deuxième exposition à la Speerstra Gallery.

Avec "Lost & Found", il retranscrit sur la toile ses expériences de vie à Barcelone, ville où il a élu domicile depuis un an. Ville d'émulation Graffiti, il y a énormément peint, rencontré beaucoup d'autres artistes, et vécu une perpétuelle pérégrination émotionnelle, plongé dans cette culture latine.

Ses toiles sont toujours porteuses de son médium de prédilection, le spray, mais dans cette nouvelle série, il y intègre des coups de pinceaux vertigineux à l'acrylique, ainsi que de l'encre. Smash 137 reste fidèle à son style très gestuel et frais, tout en notant sa nouvelle forme de vie dans le sud de l'Europe.

Aussi, comme pour déclarer sa fierté de faire maintenant partie des étoiles montantes du Graffiti, Smash 137 nous fera découvrir sa première sculpture "Shootingstar", oeuvre en métal colorée et ciselée de son style tranchant.

Basler artist Smash 137 introduces his second exhibition at the Speerstra Gallery. With "Lost & Found", he commits to the canvas his living experiences in Barcelona, where he has been staying for a year. In this city of emulation in Graffiti, he has been doing a huge amount of painting, meeting many other artists, and living a perpetual emotional peregrination, immersed in this Latin culture.

His canvases still bear his favoured medium, spraypaint, but in this new series he incorporates ink and vertiginous brush strokes with acrylics. Smash 137 remains true to his very gestual and fresh style, while taking into account his new way of life in the South of Europe.

So, as if to assess his pride to be now part of the rising stars of Graffiti, Smash 137 will be presenting his first sculpture, "Shootingstar", a metal piece colored and chiselled in his sharp style.
