TOY CREW gets funky
Graffiti crew TOY will be exhibiting for the first time in Berlin from 10th to 11th of September 2016 in ZweiDrei Raum, Berlin Kreuzberg. A debut exhibition with large format canvases, installations, video screenings...and live music.The opening will take place on Saturday 10th at 18:00.
For this exhibition, Berlin based writers ROZER, IGIT, SPIRIT, LOFK, Viktor Treshkow and Max Grambow have come together to create new ways of experiencing graffiti art. Usually confined to street bombing and train painting, they adapted their own graffiti approach to a gallery setting. The graffiti aesthetics, the illegality of it, the flow and freshness of their style remain and can be felt through their canvases, videos and
Ultimately, the viewer should be able to understand the motivations behind TOY ’s actions and grasp the subtlety, humor and honesty of their style. Artists included are among the biggest players of Berlin's graffiti scene, with crews like TLS, CTM, CMD, TBR, IMK, to name just a few.
The highlight of the exhibition is a selection of 2,5 by 3,5 meter canvases, collected from Berlin train stations that were initially used as advertising billboards. Through this exhibition, the artists are taking a stand against the destruction of streetculture
heritage along with the decreasing amount of public space in Berlin. Following this idea, they have for example created an installation with remains of TOY graffiti pieces collected on ruins of destroyed buildings. Combined with a selection of videos and documentation, the TOY exhibition will give guests a new way of relating to the world of graffiti art.
