David Bruce’s studio is also his sports room. His positive paintings reflecting his basketball memories are presented at Kolly Gallery from 5th to 10th of April 2021.
Basketball was an iconic subject of David Bruce’s generation. For him Michael Jordan symbolized the sports success in the 1980ies and 90ies, an idol. The basket ball is strongly connected to David Bruce’s childhood memories as well as first graffiti experiences. In order to play basketball with other kids, the adolescent would take the train to different basketball courts and playgrounds. That was when he first encountered graffiti, mostly silver pieces, and soon after started to spray himself.
