Some impressions from the "Enter the circle" show, which is currentoly on display and can be seen until 4th of Februry.

„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.
Works by CHAZME, ETNIK, Jana & Js, Jan Kalab, Marc C. Woehr, Patrick Hartl, Pavel Ryzko, RAWS, Sebastien Preschoux and Theo Lopez can be seen.

JANA & JS
"Deconstruction de Facade 68"
Ø 59cm
Wood Assemblage & stenciled spray paint

for "Enter the circle" show on display at Pretty Portal until 4th of Feb 2022. Please address your inquiries to info@prettyportal.de or send us a PM.Jana & Js are an Austro-French artist couple, whose work can be found both in urban surroundings as well as in closed rooms. Inspired by the city and its architecture in the course of time, as well as by the residents and the viewers, they spray urban landscapes, portraits and details of architectures with a play of reflections and transparencies.
In their paintings they work with situations of people in the habitat city. Before close tightly packed architectural landscapes they show individuals that act on the one hand lost and isolated, but also searching, longing and hopeful.
Using a special stencil-technique (after Artiste Ouvrier -together in collective WCA), they work exclusively with their own photographies.
In addition to painting, the artist couple also made sculptures out of wood and metal. Complex nested facade elements to which they paint reminiscent of residential honeycomb house fronts.

In Theo Lopez’s pictures lines are gliding over the canvases. They follow imaginary freeforms, swing in harmonic rhythm, take straight paths to suddenly change their direction. In doing so, they define forms that recall Wild Style graffiti and are inspired by Dadaism and Surrealism. Asked for further influences, Theo Lopez calls the Russian Constructivists, and the abstract American expressionism. Theo Lopez combines all these directions in works that are attributable to the contemporary art of Graffuturism. In addition to the expressive form-language, his skilful handling of light and shadow and the use of powerful colors, which lend his works a wonderful vitality, are striking.

Théo Lopez is one of the outstanding talents of the French Urban Contemporary scene. He was born in the Paris suburbs in 1989, where he still lives and works.
In 2008, he was invited by the art collection 9éme Concept, for which he realized several major projects on an international level. Since then, Theo has been working on his expression and his visual language. He has continued to evolve more and more from the object to the abstract, from the effect to the essential. The works of the still young artist were presented in a variety of exhibitions and publications. Some of his works are part of the collection of Nicolas Laugero Lasserre and are exhibited at the Art42 Urban Art Museum in Paris.

Spray paint and acrylics on wood

Patrick Hartl (*1976) is a German contemporary artist with a passion for handwriting and lettering. As of age 15, he was painting Graffiti and learning the ropes of art within the urban sphere. His graphic studies revealed a love for calligraphy and stylized writing with deep roots in the gothic script of his native Germany. Patrick Hartl connects old craftsmanship with modern street style – with a fantastic result.
On closer inspection, Hartl’s seemingly monochrome works turn out to be the result of a multitude of layers of paint and a colourful diversity. His favourite canvas is a ten-years-old wall, which has been bombed, cleaned, bombed again, crashed, washed, damaged, but which always tells a new and unique story. As a master of handcrafted designs and analogue works, and one of the foremost urban calligraphers, Patrick Hartl has been involved in making art for more than two decades.
An avid collaborator, Hartl belongs to the “CALLIGRAFFITI AMBASSADORS” and, in addition to exhibiting in traditional galleries from New York to Buenos Aires to Tokyo, and he has painted murals across Europe and beyond.

ETNIK is the alias of Italian-Swedish artist Alessandro Battisti. While studying at the School of Art in Florence, ETNIK got in contact with Italy’s most famous graffiti writers and henceforth devoted to working with typography and spray paint. Soon he combined his typography with geometric shapes and developed a unique style of three-dimensional style Writings, which made him known intarnatinally. ETNIKS enthusiasm for geometry, urbanism and architecture, motivated him to develop his imagery continuously. In this process the typographical elements moved more and more into the background and made room for geometric sculptures and architectural sketches. He paints visionary city models, takes unusual perspectives and connects urban landscapes with natural elements. His current work, which he names with the working title “Prospective Cities” show abstract, fantastic cities in clouds and futuristic tree houses. The typographic elements in ETNIKs current work are reminiscent of the origin of his creative work as a graffiti writer.

Kai “Raws” Imhof is a Berlin based artist who deals with the abstraction of urban aesthetic elements, digitalization and social challenges. The central means here, in addition to the medium of spray cans and the color world of certain urban movements, is the compositional arrangement of the elements. Imhof thus combines his past as a graffiti artist with the influences of modern graphic design, contemporary art and social themes.

Raws’ artistic career started in 2004 when he was painting the streets as a graffiti writer. During his early years as a sprayer, he painted illegal bombings and tags on walls in his neighborhood. Due to clashes with the police, he decided (around 2008) to deal with the artistic side of graffiti writing. By painting high-end colorful pieces over the years he became a famous artist in the international graffiti scene.
Movements like Bauhaus or Blauer Reiter and artists like Kandinsky, Richter or Picasso made him rethink his own standards and views and had a big impact to his following artworks. Nowadays, he is combining his addiction to clean graphics, layout and arrangement with a classic graffiti style.
Raws had international shows, cooperations with big brands and became a well known german contemporary artist.
