What do you think of when you see a spray can?
Speedy Graphito’s new series dedicates its attention to the most used tool and most associated symbol to graffiti and street art, which is – the spray can. Kolly Gallery is excited to present the outstanding series entitled The Urban Art Shop at the Street Corner from 14th to 19th December 2020.
With the significant title The Urban Art Shop at the Street Corner Speedy Graphito points out the importance and intimacy of urban art shops for the creative community, which is still utterly necessary today. Nowadays there are still just a few local suppliers for cans and paint equipment for graffiti and street art, which mostly represent places of all desires, of all creative projections for artists of this particular field.
Kings wear crowns and bishops carry a crosier. Throughout history insignia and attributes have been assigned to clearly identify certain functions, positions and professions. Just as iconic figures but also crafts men and women had their attributes, probably the most unequivocal and iconic attribute in the graffiti and street art universe is – the spray can.
