CRES1 (WHAP GANG) at LE FIX GALLERY

Posted at Friday 26-04-2013 (0 comments)

Friday 5 April - One of Denmark's most experienced and talented graffiti painters took us back in time. For then the sketches were painted with a black Penol700, breakdancing was the shit and Svanemøllen station smelled slightly of the Bronx. A trip to the classical virtues...

 

CRES1: 

 

It started in '84, with the film "Wild Style" (Danish title "Murkunst and street dance"). There was a need for a new youth culture, an alternative to punk, disco, green jackets and what was popular at the time. The graffiti had some interesting elements. There was nothing illegal in it and most of the adults were against it. So there was a good breeding ground for it to grow. We walked around in the East with jackets from Daells Hypermarket. Svanemølleværket sent solidified smoke into a frosty sky, and the trains were noisy in the background. Here we really felt like we were in "The Bronx."

 

Back then there were two large crews. "Whap Gang" and "Crime Crew." I joined Whap as a 14 year old kid, being an anonymous local recorder from a residential area. After that I rose in the hierarchy. It was great for me. I was invited by them to paint and was then handed a diploma, which I had to sign. It was my education at that time. A happy childhood.

 

Danish graffiti had a very naive style at the time. It was complete, white lines, bubbles, clouds, preferably on trains and crime related. It was classic shit .. We would steal cans, and looked down on those who painted legally. There were some standards back then, which we definitely took over from the U.S. and the movies and books we sought inspiration from in those days.

 

I probably represent the old school. One must see that it is spray paint and letters, and that's that. I spent a lot of time working with the energy inherent in the old. I feel it in letters and I have it with jazz or any fat, classic hip hop. There is flow in it. It fluctuates. That's what works for me. I tried other things, but with my new show I'm back in the classic. I feel that here I hit that magical flow. It is a little more wild. More complicated. But still quite conservative. I believe it is "CRES", it's four letters. It can be difficult for outsiders to understand how to work with four letters in almost 30 years, but in this one show, I hit it. 

 

The exhibited works are large black and white sketches. A tribute to my old friend, the Penol700. The classic is what works for me. It makes me happy when I finish a sketch.

 

Anyone with a penchant for the classic and the uncompromisingly original is invited to indulge the pleasure to see how an experienced painter uses the iconic marker.
