PIPSQUEAK WAS HERE!!! BEYOND CONTROL
14 May till 26 June 2016
Beyond Control – PIPSQUEAK WAS HERE!!!
After the greater good, the previous show, the emphasis lies again on the interaction between nature and human kind. The interpretation of the title has multiple options. Besides the incontrollable processes started by multinational corporations to speed up the destruction of our home base, nature has forces beyond control all of its own. Forces that are very similar to the creative process. The works in this show are reactions or interpretations of the world surrounding us and are the result of messing around with paints and stencils. A process of various ideas are getting tangled up in an incontrollable mix of incidents.
PIPSQUEK WAS HERE!!! Is an Amsterdam- Based art duo that has expressed its principles and convictions for over 25 years through bold. Outspoken works- on the streets and in galleries worldwide. In a time of dwindling forests and sprawling concrete developments, PIPSQUEAK makes us aware of the tender relationship that exists between nature and human nature.
EELCO VAN DEN BERG – LOST IN SPACE
26 March till 8 May 2016
Lost in space is Eelco “virus” van den Berg’s second exclusive solo show at the Original Dampkring Gallery. The exhibition is Eelco’s intuitive imaginary world on canvas, driven by his passion for surrealistic pop art and his daily escapes to his studio where he gets ‘lost in space’.
The Dutch multi-disciplinary street artist creates psychedelic landscapes with the unique color palette he developed mostly on the streets of New York. Honored to be named one of NYC’s top 10 street artists, Eelco is not just living the dream but painting it as well.
Eelco “virus” van den Berg (Uden 1974) is a painter, muralist and illustrator based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and New York. His bold, award-winning graphic works have been commissioned by numerous brands, including Philips, Senseo and Jack Daniels. He is a guest lecturer of illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academie.
