Nug Tagging Exhibition in Berlin!

Infamous Swedish artist Nug is going to open his solo tagging exhibition Human Behaviour at Skalitzers Gallery in Berlin this Saturday!

Nug, whose latest project (the concept is fuck you, yes you) for the Fame Festival 2011 in Italy got loads of publicity around the globe, has gained wide recognition in recent years for his graffiti-inspired actions! In Berlin, NUG is going to show the fourth exposition in the Fine Lines series, exploring the role of tagging within contemporary art…

Fine Lines – The tag, also referred to as handstyle, urban calligraphy or writing, is a personal statement or signature: an expression of identity. The work of many artists starts and ends with the tag. For some the tag represents the basis from which they developed their style into less abstract art forms. For many of these artists tagging is a relevant part of their work, others’ entire message is contained within their tag. Reaching across culture, class and age, the tag is a global art form: a pure form of self expression and style. Originating in Philadelphia in the 1960s and New York in the early 1970s, for decades it has laid the foundation for a number of related art forms which have developed from the streets to galleries worldwide.

I’m pretty sure this show is going to get awesome – After Roa, L’Atlas and Cope2 this is another highlight at Skalitzers Gallery!
