  In 2011 we were happy to welcome the french artist Amose to Vienna for a solo show. He was also the first artist to paint on our rotating wall project on Siebensterngasse. We are now even more excited to welcome him back again 2 years later for a show with his long time collaborator and friend Eroné. The two French artists have been working together for years, perfecting their signature style of elongated elegant figures composed of various shapes. Although their characters are somehow similar, upon closer inspection one can immediately see the differences. Amose is very concentrated on clean lines and more defined details in his work. Whereas Eroné is free to allow his lines to explore the forms in a natural less perfect way. The show “Derrière les fagots” (which is an old french expression meaning something precious or special) will feature original works on paper, ink on plexiglass, and two very large wooden sculptures.

  Pop surrealism Graffiti from Barcelona. Aryz, the young but UBER talented artist from Barcelona will be presenting his work in his very first Solo show! Aryz first got known for his crazy Pop Surrealist style done with the spray can, but after an accident leaving him not able to use his index finger (very important to a graffiti artist) he was forced to look for other ways to express his visions. This incident lead him to working more with the brush and also doing bigger versions with a roller (as seen on the flyer). It is incredible to think that what is already so amazing with a paint brush or spraypaint can also be translated to a supersized version with a roller! Look closely, try and count how many shades are used in one character! Aryz is currently studying art in Barcelona and draws large inspiration from Classical Spanish portrait Painters, such as Diego Velazquez. Spawned from a traditional Hip Hop upbringing of Breakdance, Aryz has now focused his energy on Graffiti and has left his mark in Bosnia/Herzegovinia, Germany, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, Portugal, all over Spain, and of course now on Austria!

  The Israeli crew, Broken Fingaz are currently in Vienna setting up their new show. The 4 guys from Haifa are reunited again for the first time since 3 months to build up the works in the gallery. The comic inspired works have a touch of Faile, a touch of Barry Mcgee, and alot of old Stan Lee Marvel. The works are mainly on found wood but a couple inks will also be available. In preparation for the show, Broken Fingaz painted their first piece in the streets of Vienna entitled “Chase the Devil”. The work is inspired by Vienna’s long history of myths involving the Devil, and the Black Plague in 1679 which killed an estimated 76,000 people. The artists plan to paint a few more productions while they are here so stay tuned for updates…

  Collin van der Sluijs, well known artist from Maastricht, will be having his first solo show in Austria this week at INOPERAbLE. The show entitled “Best Love” in honor of his mother, will highlight some of the most recent works of the artist. However a huge collection of older works will also be displayed in an installation which should resemble his own studio at home. Collin puts literally everything into his work, emotion, blood, sweat and even Urine! So touch the work at your own risk… This will be just another exhibition in his already extensive list of shows all over the world including Paris, Munich, New York, and London. We’ve been looking forward to this show for awhile now and are excited to present his work this Thursday to you. So time to kick off the summer with a nice refreshing cold Trummer beer (thanks trummer) and amazing art delivered from Maastricht.

  ETAM Cru is a street art duo who typically paint colorful murals with characters in unique scenes. The duo, made up of Polish artists BEZT and SAINER, created some of the most magnificent works of street art that often covers huge buildings around the world. Mateusz Gapski "Bezt" was born in 1987 in Turek, Poland. He studied at the University of Łódź and started doing graffiti around 1999/2000.  The artist expresses himself between murals, canvases and graphic design with a focus on illustrations and portraits. Bezt enjoys to depict real objects and human figures in unexpected contexts. In doing so, the artist invites the viewer to his very own world of imagination, where meaning is never strictly defined. Contemplators are encouraged to step into the artists surreal stories and develop them according to his or her individual liking.

  Stencil artists Jana and JS first met in a shared apartment in Madrid. At this point in time the City was establishing itself as a real central place for Stencil Art. “This technique seemed like the best way for me to express myself artistically. I started to cut and paint very simple stencils. The following year when I returned to Paris  I met many artists, including Artiste-Ouvrier, who in 2005, founded the first French Stencil Crew, “Working Class Art” (WCA). We have since joined the collective, and it is because of this and other encounters that we developed our style which still defines us today.” -JS. Jana began cutting Stencils back in Austria and later moved to Paris in 2006. The two artists began working together and continue to do so in Salzburg. Jana and JS’ work characterizes itself in a very exact, realistic, and colorful style. Above all Urban space and areas which lay in ruins or are in the process of being demolished interest them. The images in their work reflect the cities where the work is then left, including Paris, Salzburg, Vienna, Madrid, Barcelona.

  aka FRANCO FASOLI (Buenos Aires, 1981) After being nicknamed JAZZ by his BMX and skating friends in the late 90’s, to finally erase the second Z and became JAZ, the Argentinian artist Franco Fasoli has changed and evolved his art in many ways. Inspired by his work in scenography, and moving away from his Graffiti back ground, he felt free to experiment with different ways of painting, and he became more ambitious in scale and complexity in his peaces. He adopted new materials as asphaltic paint, petrol, tar and lime, reexamining a new merge between fine arts and street angst. His unique style resembles delicate watercolor paintings inspired by many sorts of concepts, from socio political sources to images of his childhood. The communication with the public space and the people has always been one of the most important things for JAZ. Mirrored images gives metaphoric violence in his pieces, symmetrical contrasts between tension and static, making the painting more expressive, and allowing him to create new and strained relationship with the public. Jaz is nowadays a recognized artist and has exposed extensively around the world, being part of Art Basel Miami, G40 Richmond, Living Walls Atlanta, Latir Latino Lima, Open Walls Baltimore, Mamutt México City and Meeting of Styles Buenos Aire.

  Tiere, Figuren, Ornamente, schwungvolle Linien – über die Jahre hat Knarf es geschafft, seine individuelle Bildsprache zu entwickeln. Zuerst entstehen die Arbeiten als Skizzen, um sie dann auf Flächen im öffentlichen Raum zu malen. Der Künstler experimentiert mit unterschiedlichen Werkzeugen und Materialien, darunter Spraydosen, Marker, Pinsel sowie Acryl oder der Siebdrucktechnik.  Knarf, dem Wände und der öffentliche Raum normalerweise als Arbeitsgrundlage dienen, beschäftigt sich in seinen Atelierarbeiten vor allem mit monochromen Siebdrucken und Zeichnungen, in denen er viele Themen aus der Grafitti-Szene aufgreift.  2011 publiziert Knarf die „365 Bildgeschichten“. Um sich selbst künstlerisch zu motivieren nimmt er sich am 1. Jänner vor, jeden Tag in seinem Skizzenbuch zu malen. Es entstehen exakt 365 Arbeiten in 365 Tagen. Das Buch, das er in Eigenregie produzieren lässt, ist individuell numeriert und datiert, gestempelt und mit einem Original-Druck auf 365 Stück limitiert. Es wurde in der Inoperable Galerie präsentiert. In Zuge dessen wurden ebenfalls 12 Originalwerke, für jedes Monat eines, ausgestellt.  2014 gestaltet Knarf aus den Ergebnissen seines Paris-Aufenthaltes ein 30-seitiges Künstlerbuch, das in einer Ausstellung im Traklhaus Salzburg 2015 gezeigt wird. Im Buch dokumentiert er seine in Paris entstandenen Werke, von sehr großen wandfüllenden Arbeiten zu kleinen Zeichnungen und Drucken im Buchformat. Die in Paris kreierten Wände im öffentlichen Raum mit Plakaten in seiner Graffitti-Kunst wurden als Dokumentationsfotos in der Ausstellung gezeigt.  Knarf alias Frank Furtschegger wurde 1990 in Salzburg geboren, lebt und arbeitet in Wien und auf Reisen, wo er Wandgestaltungen (murals) realisiert hat: in Bangkok, Berlin, Valencia, in Australien (Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne), Polen (Danzig), Schweiz (Basel), Deutschland (Stuttgart), in den Niederlanden (Eindhoven) und zuletzt in Paris. Seit 2011 Studium an der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien in der Klasse für Grafik und druckgrafische Techniken bei Gunter Damisch.

  Belgian artist ROA works on a large scale, painting black.and-white animal images on abondoned factories and urban walls. Created using simple means-typically only black and white house paint and black and white spray paint- ROA´s street paintings reflect the aesthetic of naturalistic drawings more than a graffiti sensibility, even when painted on hundred-foot-walls. ROA typically chooses animals based on the mural´s particular location, depicting those that are native to the area; his birds, mice, rats, and barnyard animals often find themselves piled atop one another or draped across unusual features of the found surfaces on which he paints. ROA has travelled extensively in recent years, creating for example works in the streets of New York, Moscow, Madrid, London, Berlin, Los Angeles, Cologne, Stavenger, Zaragoza.

  SatOne’s show is opening this Friday the 13th, at 18 o’clock. Bring your friends, family, dog, neighbors, random guy you met on the bus, because this show is a real treat. I’m so excited SatOne found some time in his busy schedule to show his art in Vienna! Some of you might know the work of SatOne. He’s been published in almost all the graffiti magazines at some point, and he’s in numerous books. Plus if you have ever been to the Arena, I’m sure you’ve looked at it at least once. SatOne claims to be inspired by Nature and Organic shapes but when you look at his work its so amazingly clean it looks as if it was created by a machine! But maybe that’s the secret and SatOne is a machine, with the amount of work he is able to produce commercially and personally, I wouldn’t be surprised! SatOne has exhibited numerous times in about 10 countries and has worked for companies such as Burton, Adidas, and Langnese. He even has his own book produced in the Belio series! At the small chance you haven’t come across his work yet, I have attached a small pdf with info about the artist and a couple sneak peaks at his work. You don’t wanna miss it.

  In 2009, we introduced Austrians to the work of Shida. Now 3 years later we are happy to welcome the Australian back to present his solo show “Spirit of Memora.” The artist has spent the last few months traveling around the world, painting walls, sketching and drawing inspiration from every culture he visits. It is amazing to see how the work of Shida has developed since 2009. The characters which still resemble those of his first exhibit, now feel much more free and not as weighted down with outlines. The transparency and movement of the new work creates a much more ghostly effect, where the viewer often can not differentiate between the background and the character. Shida has been busy all week transforming the gallery space into his world. Visitors will be treated to a light installation and a living version of one of his creations.

  Vinz was born in 1979 in Valencia, Spain, city where he still lives and works. The "Vinz Feel Free" project has many philosophical layers from questioning our beliefs in freedom to criticizing the repressive and violent police presence around the world. His first piece was a wheat paste of a nude man squatting with his eyes looking the viewer, pasted on a wall of an abandoned lot. The beginning of Vinz Feel Free's research of a personal style based on large-scale photographies of human bodies pasted on the street with animal heads accompanying them. Animals that represent a personal use and contemporary review of various religious iconography, like the use of birds inspired by the Genesis in the Bible, the use of reptiles because its strong symbology in Maya's, Aztechs and Sumerians legends, and the frog as a powerful figure in the Apocalypse scenes. His projects are an invitation to reflect about the death of the old system, followed by a redefinition of a new one to be born, a come out against the establishment. A time to Feel Free. Vinz feel Free has painted walls around the globe and has exhibit in several important galleries in Los Angeles, Valencia, Munich, New York, Barcelona, New Jersey and Amsterdam among others.
