Bartek “Pener” Świątecki is showing “Cosmogramma” @ Inoperable gallery in Vienna


Inoperable gallery in Vienna is currently showing “Cosmogramma”, a solo show by Polish artist Bartek “Pener” Świątecki. Opened on May 8th and staying on view through June 27th, the show features his new series of abstract and deconstructive canvases based on geo elements, as well as large pieces painted inside and outside the gallery.

After years of being a graffiti artist, and being limited with writing letters, Pener built his visual language into something that is universally communicative. He evolved the alphabet into surfaces, and made words become unpredictable shapes created with bright colors and sharp lines. While his work can be seen as closeup element of wild style graffiti, upon closer examination they are much more than that. Through use of clean lines, transparency of spray paint, drips and splatters, his works are focusing the energy and rawness of graffiti onto a smaller format. The new genre under which his work can be fitted is Graffuturism, and the series of work titled „Cosmogramma” refers to the very moment when Bartek abandoned classical graffiti and started his individual search for the essence of style.

Augustine Kofie x Moneyless – ASSIOMA


With ASSIOMA Moneyless and Augustine Kofie meet at the Avantgarden Gallery to explore a new theory, finding together all the similarities and differences in their works, juxtaposing them. Moneyless takes care of building a solid foundation and Kofie begins a process of research combing Geometric and Hyperuranic Platonic perfection with the virus of reality. The work of Augustine Kofie therefore becomes one of the possible variables directly connected with Moneyless’ axiomatic purity.
