The official blog for everything relating to the former Strychnin Crew & Urban Nation
Yasha together with the accomplished Italian Curator Giovanni Cervi have organized an exciting exhibition for the 13th of May at Strychnin Gallery titled ‘The Enchanted Forest’.
This will be a group charity show in association with WWF (World Wildlife Foundation) as well as the Cultural Dept. of Berlin and will be celebrating the United Nations international Year of the Forest. A percentage of all sold pieces will be going to a WWF project with the aim of helping fight for environmental protection.
The concept of the show is to recreate a world within the gallery space with the main gallery room being full of life-sized trees (donated by the Berlin Tree school) and will be surrounded by paintings and other artworks/sculptures from a group of internationally acclaimed artists. The goal will be to portray the forest desolation and human destruction as well as the hope of what we can save and recover.
Again you will see the Strychnin Gallery space transformed into an exciting new world!!
Below is a preview of just a few of the amazing pieces that will be shown at the Enchanted Forest show. And if you haven’t made it into the gallery yet to see the current Greg Haberny and Elmer Presslee show, you have one more week! This show looks incredible and is really like no other Strychnin show. You won’t even recognise the space;)
