Still on and non the wiser - an exhibition with selected urban artists
When it comes to graffiti and Street Art, Rik Reinking can be considered as europe’s probably most ambitious art collector and expert for these arts. During 2007 and 2008, this growing-up art genre has evolved to a real hype. Reinking’s projects have to be taken in account for this trend: He organizes exhibitions with a line up of the great names in the graffiti scene, so they finally get the attention they deserve.
The book STILL ON AND NON THE WISER is a documentation of one of these ground-breaking exhibitons which took place in the „Von der Heydt-Museum Wuppertal“ in 2007. It documents the exhibited works of the eleven involved artists DANIEL MAN, HEIKO ZAHLMANN, DAIM, STOHEAD, TASEK, HERBERT BAGLIONE, OS GEMEOS, MISS VAN, TILT, ZEVS and PIUS PORTMAN.
Moreover, each of them got a personal portfolio section which shows more exceptional works besides the works presented in the exhibition. These selections prove that every artist is able to master the span between street and gallery in his very individual way. The additional articles by Dr. Gerhard Finckh, Toke Lykkeberg and Asko Lehmuskallio just put the final icing on the cake in this book and add a scientific dimension to it.
These articles and the use of special print techniques throughout the book make this catalogue something special and let the reader take part in the growing-up of this culture.
