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

pener_inoperable01

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.

JAZ’s Minotauers in Vienna

Check out this new wall by JAZ on an old archway in the 9th district of Vienna; located right in front of the trash refinery and designed by the famous architect and artist Hundertwasser.

The archways are usually very difficult to get permission to paint on as they are for the most part under historical preservation. However with the help and support from the Grelle Forelle club, INOPERAbLE gallery and JAZ were able to get the permission. The Minotauers were JAZ’s second wall in Vienna while he prepared for his show “Cult to the Character” at INOPERAbLE.

All the artists, including The Weird, Jukebox Cowboys, Lords, Sobekcis & Michael Hacker have already been there a few days creating drawings together which will be shown at the opening.

The opening will also see Michael Hacker will release his first screenprint collaboration with Nychos called: “TOO MUCH METAL FOR ONE HEAD”.

For those in Vienna, the new space can be found at Gumpendorfer Straße 91. The RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT wants their new Art Space to be a platform in Vienna for local and international urban and graffiti artists. Their ambition is to give graffiti illustration the same level of recognition within the art scene as it does in cities like London, New York and Paris. Yet it will be more than a gallery; it will be a meeting point where in addition to exhibitions, all kinds of events such as concerts and art festivals will be held there.

We wish we could be there to support this opening but hope to get out their soon and check out the new space. For those of you lucky enough to be in Vienna, head down on 6th December for a night we don’t think you’ll forget in a hurry.
