New2 takes Mannheim

Australian graffiti veteran New2 opens his first European solo show in Mannheim, Germany on Thursday January 6, 2011 at 16h. "Sunset ... Sunrise" will be showing brand new wood sculptures, finely detailed collages and painted mounted panels. For this exhibition, the artist extracts shapes and symbols from his outdoors graffiti pieces and integrates them into the gallery space, Stoffwechsel in the Hafenstrasse 74.

With his psychedelic colours and retro sci-fi references, New2 manages to create his own style of letterforms, integrating traditional graffiti skills with all things space. The artist has been active on the streets for 25 years and uses this experience moving into the gallery world with inventive art installations. The show runs until February 25.
