Space Gallery in Kolding is announcing its upcoming group exhibition, Beyond Imagination, this August. The exhibition will show the unique works of five talents.
You are invited to the opening of our new group show:
Redefining the Bounderies of Artistic Expression
Space Gallery would like to invite you to an unforgettable art experience at our new group exhibition Beyond Imagination, Saturday, August 12th at 13.00-16.00.
Talented Daniel Melim comes all the way from Brazil and presents his stronger works with a background in urban street art, and of course this is to be celebrated.
In addition to Daniel, we also have the pleasure of a visit from 2 of our other artists, namely Ben Slow and Roberto Marchesi, so there will be plenty of opportunity to get closer to what drives these talented artists and not least to hear the stories behind the individual works.
Next to new beautiful works from the above-mentioned artists, we also present exciting work from Ange Bell, and we introduce yet another English artist – namely Chris Guest. It will be a bang of an afternoon in the sign of art, where we will of course also dish up bubbles, wine and snacks.
For this fantastic event we have teamed up with Kolding's most talented DJ, Pladedamen, who provides the perfect atmosphere this Saturday afternoon.
Mark your calendars and join us for an artistic event full of creativity, inspiration and good company. We look forward to welcoming you.
Space Gallery is looking forward to welcome you.
Olaf Ryes Gade 7R st.th.
Social art activist
Daniel Melim will be travelling all the way from Brazil to take part in this extraordinary event and will show a total of 7 works. As a renowned urban artist, Melim brings a unique perspective to his works, inspired by street art and urban culture. Melim's works can be seen in galleries and museums in Brazil and abroad, including in Rome, Lisbon and at the Valencia Biennale in Spain.
Daniel Melim is one of the leading muralists in Brazil. He has revived a style that has contributed to the development of street art in Brazil. His works are full of bright, lively colors from his homeland and a unique artistic style that is situated between street and pop art. Throughout his career, Daniel has always chosen to beautify neighborhoods where people had minimal contact with art, such as ABC Paulista in the suburbs of São Paulo.
The Casa de Cultura project is his contribution to art in Brazil. Here he teaches, creates his murals and involves children and young people who would not otherwise have that opportunity. For example, he has organized art workshops for children from a slum area in São Paulo.
Visit by 2 more artists
Two other artists who are exhibiting again at SPACE, namely Roberto Marchesi and Ben Slow, will also be present to meet on opening day, so that art enthusiasts and collectors will have the opportunity to hear the story behind the individual works of art and get to know the artist.
Italian from Vejle
Roberto Marchesi, a Milan-born artist who lives in Vejle, pays tribute to the classical language of art in his expressive and stylistically refined works. With a background in classical art, more precisely the classical techniques and his fascination with light, Marchesi creates works of art that reflect a sense of tradition and perfection. His paintings evoke a timeless quality, often featuring recognizable scenes juxtaposed with contemporary elements that invite viewers to reflect on the connection between past and present.
English street art artist
Ben Slow, who has his studio in Copenhagen, comes from the British street art scene, where he has created large murals across the UK and internationally. His unique style combines abstract aesthetics with refined portraiture, blurring the lines between figurative and abstract elements. Slow's art tells stories inspired by his travels and captures the vivid characters and cultural nuances he encounters along the way.
Pin-up artist from London
Ronald Hofman has also made room for a new artist for the opening, namely Chris Guest, a London-based artist who is experiencing great popularity on his home turf and is now coming to Denmark. Chris draws inspiration from his childhood in Bristol's inner city in the 80s. He infuses his art with elements from 80s arcade games, comics, and pop culture references. Chris Guest mainly focuses on painting heavily tattooed people in a typical "Pin-Up" expression and style, combined with a modern twist.
Ange Bell, originally from Northern Ireland, lives in the west of England. Her work focuses on capturing the essence of origin and belonging. Through detailed oil paintings, she revives lost moments and creates dialogue between the subject and the viewer. Bell's portraits convey a sense of nostalgia and a desire for recognition, inviting viewers to establish a personal connection with the artwork.
Local DJ sets the music.
As a supplement to the art exhibition, Space Gallery has invited DJ Pladedamen to curate a specially selected playlist that sets the mood for an immersive and inspiring afternoon.
Ronald Hofman is delighted: "We are looking forward to opening Beyond Imagination - it will be a remarkable event that celebrates creativity, pushes artistic boundaries and invites all art lovers to embark on a visual journey."
Everyone is welcome at SPACE Gallery on Saturday, August 12, from 13:00 to 16:00 for an unforgettable experience of contemporary art.
