Urban Spree Galerie presents "Concrete Reflections", the latest solo show of the Finnish contemporary and graffiti artist EGS.

The exhibition will open on Thursday, September 16th, 2021 during the Berlin Art Week.

Born in 1974, EGS belongs to the first European wave of graffiti, having spread his letters throughout the Nordic and ex-USSR territories. A child of the Cold War, EGS is influenced by the power of geography, space and graffiti-induced movement.

EGS has developed over the years a very consistent approach in his art, a "procédé" whereby his tag "E.G.S" is the foundation of many of the artworks he produces. Always the same and never the same. Be it hand-blown glass sculptures, world maps, paintings and drawings, the plasticity of his letters creates an ever-changing mental universe, bordering abstraction, and always personal.
