Shown at the exhibition "60 Jahre Kunst in Hamburg": Boris Hoppek, Group Love Skull, ink on paper, 70 x 50 cm (2014) - click iamge for more info and availability

It's not every day that you can see original artwork by one of the most prestigious german Graffiti artists, Boris Hoppek. We here at heliumcowboy have been representing Boris since 2004, but while he has continued to be active on a very high level these past years, very few of his art shows or urban interventions have taken place in his home country lately. 

For the exhibition "60 Jahre Kunst in Hamburg" we've managed to get very exciting works on paper to show, including a 450 x 150 cm large marker drawing and several smaller sized, highly detailed ink piece.

Boris Hoppek's historic importance for Urban Art is only one of the many reasons why you should check out the group exhibition "60 Jahre Kunst in Hamburg" while it lasts - only four days left to do so, including a night for drinks this very evening:  

Wednesday 7 - 11 PM 
Thursday & Friday 5 - 9 PM
Saturday 2 - 6 PM

Location: Affenfaust Galerie, Paul-Roosen-Straße 43, 22767 Hamburg

Setting up the show: David Shillinglaw and Frida Mindt discussing our upcoming exhibition REMOTE CONTROL. This is David's first solo show in Germany, and also a debut for Frida - her first exhibition as gallery director here on the Ranch.

Congratulations to both - even though it is still a lot of work to be done before the vernissage this Friday (July 10, 7-11 PM), the gallery space already looks amazing! This will be once crazy good art show, you definitely don't want to miss it ...

David Shillinglaw: "REMOTE CONTROL" opening July 10

We are very happy to announce our first solo exhibition with London based artist David Shillinglaw opening July 10 in our gallery space in Bäckerbreitergang 75.

We first introduced David to Hamburg in 2013, when heliumcowboy founder Jörg Heikhaus was supporting the Millerntor Gallery #03 as artistic director of the charity art festival in the stadium of cult football club FC St. Pauli. Since then David has gained high recognition on the art market and in galleries world wide as a future collector's highlight.  

David Shillinglaw’s art explores themes of identity and the human condition, whether a complex anatomical diagram or simple stick man. Drawing on ideas from ancient mythology as well as popular culture, the artist creates a dialogue between the historic and the contemporary. Shillinglaw often paints directly onto found objects, forging a candid relationship between himself and his shifting environment. 

Vernissage Friday, July 10 at our gallery in Bäckerbreitergang 75, Hamburg.

Exhibition from July 10 - September 4, 2015
