Sepe Reveals “Selfie in the Circus” Solo Show / Mural

Selfie_in_the_Circus_01

Polish artist Michał SEPE Wręga recently painted a new wall in an abandoned spot in south Poland announcing his upcoming solo show “Selfie in the Circus”.  After last year’s individual exhibition at the Lawrence Alkin Gallery in London, this exhibition will be held at the Zurich-based gallery Soon.

The new mural is showing a circle of characters pointing at each other with one single person in the middle of this quiet circle. Through clever use of light and limited color palette as well as expressive brush strokes, the artist achieved a tensed atmosphere with this piece. The similar idea follows the canvas works Sepe created for the show as a continuation of his sweet-bitter journey across our fascinating, though increasingly more absurd, grotesque, shoddy, hysterically flamboyant world.

ARTURb: imprisonment is a beautiful way to free art on the streets.

This summer we chose Lagos for our holiday destination. We were looking for beautiful, quiet beaches,  nice hot stretches in the sun, cool places for drinks before dinner, and, yes, a little bit of buzz.  No more expectations.  The truth is we had much more than that: we ended up being struck by what we found on the city walls.

As you start to wander the alleys you literally bump into pieces from international artists such as ROA, BEZT, SAINER, ARYZ, SEPE, ONUR or BORONDO, to mention some, in addition to works from well known Portuguese ones as MÁRIO BELÉM, MAISMENOS, ADDFUEL, amongst others. It wouldn’t be as dazzling if we were in Berlin or Buenos Aires; the thing is it takes place in Lagos, a tiny spot on the Portuguese map, a small picturesque village. How the hell is this happening here?

Sepe reveals a new piece at abandoned spot in Wołczyn, south Poland

SEPE_and_we_left_all_our_cares_behind_00

After a successful London solo show, Polish artist Sepe is spending his summer exploring abandoned spots around his homeland and painting new works. Continuing slightly darker, more haunting style he’s been working with lately, he recently revealed this new piece in Wołczyn, south Poland.
Inspired by “Mouse Utopia”, experiment by John Calhoun from 1968, “And We Left All Our Cares Behind” is the title of this new raw and expressive piece he recently revealed. The piece is artist’s vision of what happens to human development when there are no dangers nor natural limitations like the struggle for existence etc. Painted in a secret, abandoned spot using dimmed, pastel colors with lots of sketch like lines and drips, this surrealist piece blends great with the environment with almost ghost-like feel to it.

Sepe and Chazme collaborate on a piece in Estonia

sepe_chazme1
Polish artists Sepe and Chazme recently collaborated on a street piece in Tartu, Estonia. Titled ‘Supilinn 15’ after the name of neighberhood they painted in, the mural is kind of tribute to
two famous Polish creatives born in this town.
Mixing their different but complementing styles, the image is depicting a bus known from Bogusław Linke’s famous painting “Autobus”, along with architectural elements of a futuristic building ‘Spodek’ in Katowice, designed by the architect Jerzy Hryniewiecki. By mixing those two elements through their distinctive technique and interpretation, the young artists paid their tribute to their influential countrymen.

Jednakowo/Różni – Polish Urban Artist Group Show @ The Outsiders

outsiders11

The Outsiders gallery in Newcastle recently opened a group show following the global recognition and success of young Polish artists and muralists. Lead by the Etam Cru’s Sainer and Bezt, Polish street art scene bloomed in the recent years, bringing us couple of big events as well as recognizable new styles and names. Jednakowo/Różni (Equally/Various or Same/Different) is featuring original works by Robert Proch, Chazme, Sepe, Nawer, Pener, M-City and Otecki.

Mostly presenting abstract works, the exhibition is showcasing the best new contemporary urban talent from the country. From Robert Proch, Sepe, or Otecki’s more figurative works that are bordering with abstraction, Chazme’s architecture influenced creations, Pener and Nawer’s futuristic dynamic, geo based, bright colored abstract paintings, all the way to M-City’s bold stencils. With most of the artists coming from a graffiti background, having some impressive, often collaborative murals behind them, the step into gallery works was a logical and natural way of progressing. What is pretty impressive is the ease that these young talents transferred their work on a new medium, and the quality of the works created for this show.

The show opened on 31st of October 2014 and will stay on view until 29th of November 2014 @ The Outsiders in Newcastle. (Photos by Pener)
