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.

This is the first detail of the upcoming release of Monkeybird´s latest screen print edition that will drop on 14th of April at http://shop.prettyportal.de
Address info@prettyportal.de for inquiries.  Monkeybird´s work show a search for balance between dreams and reality. Loaded with symbols and allegries, their pieces are an emotional and rational discussion about human progress. Most MonkeyBird artworks incorporate a humanoid monkey and bird, which represent the two faces of humankind, the monkey being the realist, and the bird being a dreamer. The artists try to follow the ancestor’s knowledge and adapt it to reach the modern citizens mind, with symbolic pictures. Monkeybird are inspired by ephemeral monumentality, religious and mythological paintings and art nouveaux.  The two artists met in the street of Bordeaux in 2009. One of them was looking for a change in his graffiti and the other a change in framework and identity. With a background in graphic design, as well as object and industrial design they developed an artistic aesthetic, which contains technique-driven stenciling. collages, spray painting, drawing, carving, silkscreen printing and engraving.  #contemporary #art #urbanart #streetart #printlrelease #weloveart #wesellart #weloveprint #artoftheday #artonpaper #artoninstagram #Hahnemuehle #screenprint #serigraphie #instaart #instagood #instagraff #instagrafite #instalike #blackandwhite #mask #monkeybird #monkey #bird #kunst #siebdruck #collecting #limitededition @monkeybirdcrew
A hidden gem from our shop:
Claudio Ethos "Impetus"  Claudio Ethos is a Brazilian urban artist. His work is often twisted manipulation of images and landscapes with abstract and surreal tendencies that explore the more spiritual side of the artistic process.
As he likes to say, his characters try to depict emotional and spiritual states because there are no accurate definitions for so many of these sensations – they just appear and he just tries to translate these things that are captured only by intuition.
His technique first involves working in sketch books and on canvases with a ballpoint pen, just to translate those meticulous drawings onto the concrete for all to see. By mapping narratives, Ethos depicts characters found all over the city; they are often anxious, struggling through a cramped, concrete megalopolis, but persevering nevertheless. It is obvious that his inspiration is rooted in the streets and generated from experience, dreams, and memory.  #contemporary #art #urbanart #streetart #brazil #weloveart #wesellart #weloveprint #artoftheday #artonpaper #artoninstagram #somerset #screenprint #serigraphie #instaart #instagood #instagraff #instagrafite #instalike #blackandwhite #drawing #love #kiss #embrace #kunst #siebdruck #collecting #limitededition
