NEW YORK – Thru the June 10, the Pandemic Gallery is hosting “Klub 7 is up to something,” a collection of screen prints and small works by the Berlin-based Art Collective. The exhibit, while small, contains a wide representation of the works the group has perfected in their decade of creating art.
The group has a trademark style that incorporates pop art, comic, pop culture on various materials including paper, wood, textile and large-scale murals. The six members (Otto Baum, Mike Okay, Lowskii, Kid Cash, DIsko Robot, Dani Daphne) refer to the collective as an “artistic laboratory, wherein everything revolves around doing and experimenting.” Over the years they have evolved into a studio that creates murals, customizations and illustrations throughout the world, but remain grounded in classic graffiti writing.
Since Pandemic specializes in, but doesn’t restrict itself to, urban street art, Klub 7 is a perfect fit for the artist-run space.
Along with the show, Klub 7 painted a wall in Willimasburg on Union Avenue near Grand Street, and chalked up various areas in Brooklyn with intricate, temporary pieces—Coney Island, the Williamsburg Bridge. It’s too bad rainy weather has washed away the work.
