A YEAR IN RISO by STENCILWERCK
A YEAR IN RISO is a pop-up exhibition initiated by STENCILWERCK at HOK Gallery.
In January and February, HOK Gallery gives the floor to The Hague’s
finest riso printer Stencilwerck, who in turn gives the floor to twelve of
The Hague’s finest illustrative artists. Each of these twelve artists,
hand-picked by curator Lula Valletta, has contributed an original
illustrative artwork, specially designed for being made into a
risographed print. The printing is done by Bertus Gerssen of
Stencilwerck, in collaboration with some of the artists. more
2 November – 5 January 2019: Tower Blocks and Other Symmetries by Jah Wobble
As Jah Wobble himself puts it: “Everytime I pick up the bass it’s like it’s the first time and it’s the same when I pick up a paint brush. Both things come from a deep place somewhere and I suppose that in a way it’s childish and a bit OCD’ ish, but I don’t give a fuck. It’s my therapy – my healing. I do my paintings very fast. You need the urgency. Wham! Get it on canvas.” A splendid exposition. World Wide Primeur! more
