Stay High149 R.i.P. tribute

Yesterday i did a spontanous tribute to Stayhigh149, one of the very early pioneers of Graffiti-Writing, when i heared that he sadly passed away. His Style and Idea's became worldwide a great inspiration for more than one Generation and he was, not only for the new Yorker's, one of the first rolemodels of the Writing movement. His state of mind maked him the "Voice of the Ghetto", for more about StayHigh149 check his homepage here, may he rest in Peace.

Mare139 @ Skalitzers Gallery berlin



CARLOS MARE
PHYSICAL GRAFFITI
ART OF THE B-BOY DANCE 


Opening Saturday 9th June, 19HR
Artist Talk Tuesday 12th June, 18HR


Skalitzers Contemporary Art presents the first solo exhibition in Berlin by renowned New York-based artist, Carlos Mare, aka Mare139 – one of the pioneers of the New York graffiti movement, and leading figures in the post-graffiti abstract movement.

Mare’s Bboy works marry the abstract, gestural nature of graffiti writing with the motion of the Bboy dance, effortlessly capturing the essence of the subject in new symbolic, linguistic, and spatial formulations.

Carlos Mare’s Bboy characters, so refined and visually direct, become coded representations of the dancer’s repertoire of movements and poses. In much the same way that staffed symbols are used to represent the written form of musical notation, so too the simple, gestural icons come to express a visual codification, a defined scale of available movements. – Robert Smith

Physical Graffiti: Art of the Bboy Dance is a culmination of Mare’s formative Bboy works since 2005 alongside a new body of paintings and drawings inspired by collaborations with Berlin writers, Bboy dancers and artists, including Amigo (Flying Steps), Storm and Jaybo Monk.

The B-Boy is the physical Graffiti artist, he is the lyrical and kinetic scratch, he is the break beat manifest, the most modern of all dancers. – Mare139

Join us at Skalitzers with the artist for the opening night on Saturday 9th June, and artist talk on Tuesday 12th June.
