NextStreet Gallery invites you to celebrate the PIMAX Show at the luxurious Village Royal, on September 12th, from 6pm-8pm! 

PIMAX creates ephemeral paintings on walls and stencil posters, his inspirations come from the Pop American culture. He plays with codes of contemporary art and revisits the option of stencils and resin sculptures, themes of the eighties. This applies to his series of sculptures Campbell and red resin, a nod to Andy Warhol, cast on various objects from the collective memory. Darth Vader Star Wars survivor, the cherub hedonistic or the bird caught in an oil spill… Through his work emerges a scathing critique of the consumer society, quid the packaging of all kinds hanging from the ceiling of his studio, creating a pop chaotic universe in which he lives and works surrounded by his creations. These packages serve as inspiration and models from which he draws his molds. All of his creations invite a reflection on time. The moment is frozen, as a captive of its resins or his stencils. The energy of his works always refers to the strength of our memories and representations of our imagination gathering an audience of several generations.

Onur

Onur’s unique style and sensibility comes from his earlier training as a theatre painter and graphic artist. He innovates with transformed acrylic rolls and ultra-violet paints to render a futuristic dy- namic to his works. Painted in large-scale at public venues, Onur’s works undoubtedly undertake a social mission.

In his recent works, Onur reflects on the impact of the stressful and monotonous every-day-life on human psychology. The penetrating power of his murals provide a sense of relief for his au- diences. Onur’s trademark style is hyperrealism and photorealism with a touch of humor and sarcasm.

Insane 51

Insane 51 is an Athens-based muralist. His earlier experience in graffiti led him to become inte- rested in street art, especially the visual sublime and eloquent tension of murals.

The artist pioneers in 3D murals, which borrows intricately from both natural light and technology. His specialty in photorealism combined with his innovation in 3D murals renders true magic.

Smug One

The prototype of the artist’s large-scale, spectacular murals comes from photography, yet the inspiration are in the streets. Although photographs lie at the basis for the artist’s works, he never copy-pastes them exactly as they were. Instead, he recreates them with brilliant colors, surrealist imaginations, and a unique sense of humor.

Since a young age, Smug loved to draw and paint. From an artistic young kid to one of the most respected street artists, he displays intricate techniques transferring the subjects from paper onto the wall, with nothing else but spray cans.

Kaili Smith

Kaili’s current work examines the social construct around «Youth criminality» and offers alterna- tive perspectives through paintings and film. The work is influenced by his upbringing and expe- riences as a child, but also an on going growing understanding in psychology with research into the process of Normalization of behaviour.

His earlier work looked at different people whose lives have been subjected to globalization and merging cultural influences. From migrants fighting to enter Europe on the Moroccan border, too graffiti painters in Istanbul.

Kaili has had numerous gallery & museum exhibits in Europe and the US. He sold out his gradua- tion show In July of 2018 at WDKA in Rotterdam where he received a bachelors degree in fine arts.

Wes 21

The artist worked as a freelance designer and illustrator engaging with distinctly different forms of art such as mural, 3D sculpture, and painting. His experience and unconstrained spirit make his works always unpredictable and truly original.

Wes 21 communicates his social and environmental commentary with a power visual vocabulary. The wild fantasy and dystopian imagination of his works bring new dynamics to the street art scene. The intricate fusion of nature and technology, the organic and the man-made, reality and fiction, utopia and dystopia appears throughout Wes 21’s works.

Li-Hill

Many of Li-Hill’s works attempt to dissect the human psyche, social dilemma, and environmental problems brought by industrialization, information overflow, and technology of modernity.

With a versatile background in fine arts, graffiti, and mural painting, Li-Hill develops a unique style featured by multi-layers, complex composition, sense of motion, and intricate details.

Conservation - Conversation I Solo Show by Louis Masai

Louis Masai Flyer 4.jpg

Conservation – Conversation is an exploration of what it might be to some to be a conservationist. Whilst some would argue NGO’S are the path of prosperity, others might debate as to whether zoos or even game hunting be so.

This brand new collection of works identifies 12 species painted on to vintage London zoo animal transit boxes. The selected unique animal poses ranges from sleeping, swimming, falling, mating and even trophy.

Each painting is supported by a pen and ink study of which 50% of the sales will be donated to WWF.

Five of Africa’s big mammals have been patchwork stuffed and mounted to remind the viewer that if something soon doesn’t change the only survivors will be owned by the trophy hunter.

Urban Show

From March 21st to April 6th, 2019

NextStreet Gallery presents an art show that captures an integral part of our modern moment: Urban Show. Opening on March 21, and running until April 6, this group exhibition highlights the work of 5 artists from around the world- working on shaping our global perception of street art. None of the artists shy away from bringing their personal contexts to the work. 

The variation of mediums and styles demonstrate an evolving definition of urbanity. Each artist focuses on the intersection of their subcultures; whether it be through the hip hop world, LGBTQ community or other cultural minorities. Our exhibition creates a global framework allowing urban art lovers to have a broader vision of the scope of street art. 

Each artist focuses on different approaches we can take as a community to move forward. Kurar, for example, tackles the socio-political challenges of this moment by evaluating our origins as a society. His theory is that we might be able to resolve injustice through awareness. This is beautifully in dialogue with Nuno Viegas, who suggests that perhaps the solution to the rapid acceleration of society is focusing on the simple, but powerful. He exquisitely balances the modern and classic world through focusing on the essential through-lines that have existed throughout history. 

By contrast, Drew Merritt focuses on evoking change through the emotional reaction of the onlooker- a complex experience that is justly represented in his extremely detailed work. Aaron Li-Hill, on a similar vein, is fascinated by information saturation and the future of industrialisation through creating large scale mural work. Vera Kochubey investigates the psychology of industry and our growing world. These different perspectives not only compliment, but also build off of each other. The points of intersection between the five artists creates a show that functions as an active dialogue.

We are excited to welcome the audience into our space to continue this discussion about the future of culture through the lens of street art.
