EELCO VAN DEN BERG – LOST IN SPACE
26 March till 8 May 2016
Lost in space is Eelco “virus” van den Berg’s second exclusive solo show at the Original Dampkring Gallery. The exhibition is Eelco’s intuitive imaginary world on canvas, driven by his passion for surrealistic pop art and his daily escapes to his studio where he gets ‘lost in space’.
The Dutch multi-disciplinary street artist creates psychedelic landscapes with the unique color palette he developed mostly on the streets of New York. Honored to be named one of NYC’s top 10 street artists, Eelco is not just living the dream but painting it as well.
Eelco “virus” van den Berg (Uden 1974) is a painter, muralist and illustrator based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and New York. His bold, award-winning graphic works have been commissioned by numerous brands, including Philips, Senseo and Jack Daniels. He is a guest lecturer of illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academie.
ANNUAL GROUP SHOW
12 dec – 27 jan 2016 / opening reception 12 dec, 17:00 – 21:00
Humans have always felt a desire to express themselves through art, leaving a personal stamp in the public domain for others to interpret and react to.
From the 12th of december, the Original Dampkring Gallery takes us through a wonderful show with 18 artists, consisting of local heros and their esteemed colleagues from all over the world.
Sober-Industries featuring TELMO MIEL results in a unique fusion of talent and style – known as SOBER COLLECTIVE! two outstanding Dutch Street Art groups combining their distinctive yet different and contrasting styles into an exciting symbiosis of expression that ranges from raw, abstract wood work to hyper-realistic, detailled canvases.
This art show will display work from Sober Industries and Telmomiel as well as collaborative pieces. Don’t miss it!
From Rubens to Rembrandt, from Magritte to Mondrian; art history teaches us that the Low Countries and its 17 provinces is a region of artistic excellence. ART17 – Benelux Street Art retrieves this historical genius and achieves further cooperation between the Netherlands and Flanders.
As part of the Best Buren campaign, ART17 focuses on the best Street Artists from both regions.
