On Friday July 15th, Unruly Gallery opens its doors to the public with a spectacular first solo show of the Amsterdam etching phenomenon Paul du Bois-Reymond: finally, after 400 years, Unruly gives the answer to the ever burning question: what happened after Rembrandt?
Inspired and stimulated by his father, the etcher Burkhardt Soell, Paul du Bois-Reymond (PdBR) discovered they both share the same passion for etching: he decided to reduce the dimensions of town walls and spray cans to those of a printing press.
The innovative combination of an old, almost forgotten technique and a highly personal and contemporary iconography is what makes the artistic world of PdBR unique. His virtuous etchings tell a psychedelic story in which Hieronymus Bosch and Andy Warhol, gothic and graffiti, hippies and Hells Angels co-exist.
PdBR has proven to be an etcher of the universe: a universe created by himself.
Paul du Bois-Reymond (1974, Berlin) is co-founder and owner of “Machine“, a renowned studio for graphic design and audio-visual projects. He is also a visiting Professor at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Unruly Gallery is a new gallery and web shop, founded by Niels “Shoe” Meulman who is also the founder of Calligraffiti, a blend of graffiti and calligraphy. Unruly Gallery does not categorize or label. Unruly focuses on new tendencies in contemporary art and let the displayed work of each individual artist speak for itself.
After Sunday July 17th, you can visit the exhibition by appointment only (appointment@unrulygallery .com).
The etchings by Paul du Bois-Reymond will be offered online from July 16th onwards via unrulygallery.com.
