BLADE - The King of Graffiti

(Samstag) (Samstag)

A Solo Show at Starkart Exhibitions June 23rd through July 8th, 2012.

Vernissage June 23 18:00 – 21:00

Starkart Exhibitions of Zurich in partnership with ArTicks Gallery of Amsterdam are proud to present a solo show by legendary graffiti artist Steven BLADE Ogburn, who will be making a rare personal appearance at the opening.

Starkart Exhibitions opened three years ago, putting the emphasis on exploring and developing new concepts, for presenting, perceiving and curating art. This evolved into a cutting-edge urban art space, showing various styles of contemporary art, laying the focus on: graffiti, street-art, and urban interventions. Since then, various projects, resulted in a series of highly successful exhibitions with local and and international artists. Focusing on providing a supportive environment for the arts and their role in the community, Starkart Exhibitions draws an increasingly large and diverse crowd.

Owner Roman Lew who is into Graffiti since more than 20 years himself, is personally curating the upcoming BLADE show, which will feature a selection of his oldschool full train canvases as well as more recent abstract works in a style which the man now known as The King Of Graffiti has referred to as abstragraff. Using the name BLADE, Steven began writing graffiti in the early 1970s, during the infancy of what would grow to be a worldwide art movement. Prior to 1972 he mainly produced ‘single hits’ on walls and the inside of trains. These simple tags evolved into more elaborate early pieces, but it was when he began painting the outsides of trains that BLADE found his medium. Over 5000 trains bore his name between 1972 and 1984, earning him the title ‘King of Trains’ among his friends and contemporaries.

Running concurrently with the BLADE solo show is a group show, ‘Stencil Bastards‘, featuring nine international stencil artists and curated by Christian Guemy.
