Loomit – Rahmen sind schwierig (Frames are difficult)

September 14, 2009

Pretty Portal proudly presents a new solo show by german graffiti-legend Loomit, starting at the end of september.


In 1983, Loomit (alias Mathias Köhler) did his first graffiti at the age of 15. 26 years later he is one of the most known and desired graffiti artist in Germany. Though everything started with a water tower in a small town in Bavaria and a following lawsuit.

The national and international streetart scene knows Loomit for his large-sized and colouful work, that stands out with its extreme three-dimensionality. Single letters and words warped beyond recognition are creating their own new space. His fantastic pictures filled with mysterious characters and secrets make Loomit the epitome of german graffiti.

To escape the mostly illegal streetart underground, Loomit always worked for advertising agencies and private clients. Next to his graffiti-life he received a tatoo artist training by the New York writer-legend Seen, also known as the „godfather of graffiti“. Today Loomit is a legend and a role model himself, looking back on 26 years of experience in graffiti and streetart. In 2002 his work was honoured with the art price of Schwabingen.

The city streets will always be Loomit's favourite activity area, but fortunately - if you ask galleries all over the world - Mathias Köhler also works on canvas and wood. Thus, the solo show at Pretty Portal presents smaller canvas pieces, that make an innovative use of techniques and materials possible.

dust: "darkdust" exhibition opening on 21st of august

August 12, 2009

Starting on the 21. of august we present a new and impressive exhibition by dust with the title "darkdust"

Dust's works open our eyes for a fragile and organic microcosm: For one moment it appears a fanciful picture that is vanished again with the next glance.

The works are focused on the vision of harmony between humans and nature. The abstract and reduced form of a human being, without its true identity - like animals in a consumer society. The artists style is a mixture of contemporary abstraction, surrealism and striking form and colour design.



Works are now not only seen in the streets of modern metropolises but also in contemporary galleries.

Next to the artists established work on canvas and paper there will also be his new serial of sculptures and designtoys. Recently those „Schergen“ were successfully presented in the New York Gallery "MyPlasticheart" for the first time.

Exhibition: 8.5. - 5.6.2009
Vernissage: 8.5. ab 19h
mit DJ Lee Bass

Graffiti as aesthetics between art and act of willful damage, sign language for the speed and mobility of modern urban Indians - these characterisations of wall art from the spray can are widely known. With his work on canvas, Hendrik “ecb“ Beikirch now shows that rather than following the pathway from the underground into the respectability of art galleries, graffiti is an art of space and its representation.

He does not transfer the sign language itself from walls onto canvas, but rather captures the topographical scenarios in which this language takes place. Stairways, bridges and arcades are the topics of his canvasses, with a wide sky spanning above as a symbol of anarchy and the open space for which the art of graffiti was originally designed. In these imaginary visions, anonymity and secrecy metamorphose to near photographic perfection. A deliberately minimised colour palette and a blending and running of colours evoke the melancholy of a bygone era, reminiscent of images from the early age of photography. Here, graffiti has been transformed into an art of ephemeral beauty.
