exhibition - Parachute® on Friday, May 20th, 2011

“Colours within” is an innovative Street Art & Graffiti exhibition curated by the “USE crew”, a group of street artists (Don40, Elz, Lune, Simek, Skerz, Tek, Tensa and Urid) in collaboration with calligrapher Greg Papagrigoriou. The project will be held at Stigma Exhibition Street Art Laboratory & Workshop, an industrial artistic self-expression experimental space which is the first major Street Art / cultural venue in the heart of Athens Greece, in the neighborhood of Exarcheia.

The exhibition is not confined only to graffiti; it also includes other expressive means and new modes of creation such as: illustration, painting, typography, calligraphy and photography. Motivated by the common love for graffiti and being influenced by the atmosphere of the big city life, these nine street artists will try to express themselves and experiment on different techniques (graffiti, aerosols, collages, stencils, constructions, photography and painting canvases).

Colours Within opens its doors on the 1st of June and the exhibition will last till June 30, 2011.


exhibition - Parachute® on Wednesday, May 04th, 2011

Typopassage is an innovative museum project which exhibits typographic design spanning from the initial concept to the final stage. Curated by the design studio bauer konzept & gestaltung this freely accessible exhibition series runs throughout the year at the “Micro Museum for Typography” in Vienna. The fourth exhibition will present the unconventional works of “Hi - Visuelle Gestaltung”, a design studio run by Megi Zumstein and Claudio Barandun from Luzern, Switzerland. With a background in typography and graphic design, Megi and Claudio are particularly interested in printing and building objects, playing with shapes and messing with colours and fonts. Their creative “ping-pong” approach is expressed through editorial designs for various cultural institutions, font and poster designs, as well as intelligent signs.

Opening on May 13, 2011, 7 pm.
