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.

"CopyPaste"

From 3rd of June we are showing works by CHAZME and Pavel Ryzko in the exhibition “CopyPaste”. Inspired by Brutalism and Constructivism, the urban labyrinths typical of Chazme's imagery are a metaphor for the urban environment of modern man. Pavel Ryzko stands in the tradition of Eastern European poster art and has received awards from the Polish Poster Biennale and the Polish Graphic Design Prize, among others. @chazme718 @ryzko 

For the exhibition "CopyPaste", Chazme and Pavel Ryzko have created a series of works combining the techniques of collage, screen printing, stenciling and painting. To this end, the two artists entered into a dialogue with their visual languages and created something completely new without giving up their own imagery  in the collaboration. For the exhibition, CHAZME and Pawel Ryzko had to step out of the conceptual space they were familiar with and engage in a variety of ways with each other's understanding of colour, space and composition.
In order to give the experiment a framework, the two artists have agreed on a concrete formal specification. The result is a series of works in the 20 x 20 cm format. In these, the elements most characteristic of the artists are clearly recognizable. In addition, the clash of visual languages creates a new, unique arc of tension that brings us closer to the well-known motifs of Chazme and Ryżko from a different, unusual perspective.
