Collective show focusing on Calligraffiti with works of some of the most progressive artists of this movement. Due to the different geographical and cultural backgrounds of the artists, it shows an exciting mix of different interpretations of the classic clash with scripture.
Starting at the end of April until the beginning of June, Pretty Portal will show the exhibition ODD MARKS, with selected works that can be called Calligraffiti. Calligraffiti ia combination of Calligraphy, Typography and Graffiti. It is related to abstract expressionism and abstract vandalism. Calligraffiti contrasts the beauty of scripture with the provocation of it’s placement, it’s precision with the impulsivity of it’s execution, the tradition of the scripture used with the modernity of the interpretation.
We are happy to present BLAQK, EGS, Jun Inoue, Patrick Hartl and Zepha as an interesting selection of some of the most progressive artists of this movement. The participating artists are from Japan, France, Finland and Germany. Additionally we show TOM71, a Calligraffiti artist from Düsseldorf. Due to their different geographical and cultural backgrounds, leading to fundamentally different calligraphic heritages, the exhibition will show an exciting mix of different new interpretations of the classic clash with scripture.
