#Ceramicstreetart & #Copypaste

OD Gallery is proud to announce NeSpoon’s first Dutch gallery exhibition #Ceramicstreetart, collaborating with SC Szyman for this occasion.
Central to NeSpoon’s work are age-old lace patterns. In this she finds the universal sense of natural order and harmonic balance that everyone is instinctively looking for. The lace patterns return in her work in a variety of techniques.
SC Szyman is an urban artist and graphic designer with an architectural background and who has been active in the urban art scene since 2002. From the very beginning he used rough graphic forms, mainly expressed in stencils and stickers. Since 2010 he has concentrated on making screen printing posters as an artistic medium. As an extension, he makes mural compositions that are made entirely of posters creating intriguing spatial forms.

SUMMER IN THE CITY

O.D. Gallery is celebrating the best season of the year with the group exhibition SUMMER IN THE CITY; a sparkling exhibition with work by prominent artists from home and abroad. SUMMER IN THE CITY shows a lot of new work especially made for the occasion in a variety of disciplines, ranging from site-specific installations to photography. Street art in all shapes and sizes by established names together with work by young up and coming talents.

[deːɐ̯ ˈt͡saːn deːɐ̯ ˈt͡saɪ̯t – Der Zahn Der Zeit

With Alias and Tona the gallery brings the work of two leading German street artists to Amsterdam. Their life in the metropolitan environment of Berlin and Hamburg is naturally reflected in their art but also makes them eager to search for the intimacy of direct contact with the individual in their work. This duality produces exciting, often emotional and always layered images that lead to quiet introspection. For both artists, who use the stencil as a technique, the starting point is the small, personal and sometimes tragic story within the collective epic tale that we call life.

Men at Work – Business as Unusual

Almost 30 years ago at the Love Parade in Berlin, Jim Avignon and Dadara took the street art world by storm with their painted flyers and joint performances. Since then they both made individual international careers, but never lost touch, even though their last collaboration was in 2013. Inviting Jim to Amsterdam seemed the perfect opportunity to give this a follow-up.
The exhibition will show recent works by Jim Avignon and new works made in collaboration with Dadara, as well as an overview of their common history.

COME TOGETHER

After a year of restrictions, the need to meet people, make contacts and enjoy arts in company is greater than ever. O.D. Gallery participates in this need with the group exhibition COME TOGETHER!. In this show we bring together the work of a big range of street artists from the Netherlands and abroad, artists known to the gallery as well as some new faces and hopefully their audience. Of the latter we are proud to announce the collaboration with Mister Thoms and Pascal “Tanna” Tan.

Nightgarden – Collin van der Sluijs

The O.D. Gallery is proud to announce Nightgarden, the first Dutch solo exhibition in 10 years by Collin van der Sluijs.
After his very successful exhibition in Chicago earlier this year we are pleased to offer Amsterdam the opportunity to get to know Collin’s work more closely in the gallery space, which is less common for him. The result is an intimate and personal exhibition in which Collin van der Sluijs, in his characteristic virtuoso handwriting, comments in a dreamy way on the everyday stories and struggles of this period of isolation and thus also holds up a mirror to the viewer. In the first instance this shows a very alluring image. But also an image that, on closer inspection, questions many of the pleasures of our society.
