Urban Art

Urban Art combines classical art forms with pop, punk, contemporary art, graffiti and street art, while reflecting the thoughts and moods of today, which are most likely perceived in the major metropolitan areas, the melting pots of our society. The already well-known mash-up, the interweaving of known and unknown, citation, deconstructing and re-crosslinking is sensed and used by urban artists in the visual arts. Urban Art has become an art form in the field of contemporary art.

The Gallery Pretty Portal presents and documents a fast-moving, radical new art direction. Gallery owner and curator Klaus Rosskothen sees Pretty Portal as a fusion of street and White Cube, a metalevel where Urban Art meets gallery visitors and collectors. Pretty Portal shows paintings, drawings, prints, collages, photographies, video installations and sculptures.

„Enter the circle“
feat. CHAZME, ETNIK, Jana&Js, Jan Kalab, Marc C. Woehr, Patrick Hartl, Pavel Ryzko, RAWS, Sebastien Preschoux, Theo Lopez

When talking to a literary friend about Nietzsche’s Zarathustra, of course, the well-known dialogue between Zarathustra and the dwarf came up, which deals with time, space and the moment.
“Everything just lies,” muttered the dwarf contemptuously. All truth is crooked, time itself is a circle. ”
The circle is often referred to as the mother of all forms, the perfect form, i.e. the platonic solid, the basic structure that has arisen directly from nature. Nevertheless, most of the pictures in contemporary art are painted on rectangular formats, as this form represents a more concrete boundary of the picture, a more closed surface. The circle has no corners, an infinite number of sides and no interior angles. A circular shape as a painting surface represents a new challenge for many artists.

In the exhibition “Enter the circle”, a selection of artists who work graphically abstract and belong to the direction of graffuturism, take on exactly this challenge.

Some of the participating artists use the shape of the circle as a delimitation for their works on a regular basis, some occasionally, some for the first time.
In their work they reflect a wide variety of ideas and concepts. The artists find inspiration for their works in dealing with colors and shapes, in nature, in architecture and urban landscapes, in typography and graffiti. This creates visual languages ​​that could hardly be more different. Some works gush with liveliness and spontaneity, some are clearly constructed and incredibly precise.
