    Stohead, has been in the game a long time. When he talks about the early days of his career as a graffiti artist, his narrative is dotted with historic moments that defined him, his works, and Germany’s graffiti culture. The 39-year-old artist, whose real name is Christoph Häßler, has influenced the evolution of German graffiti from a subculture associated with vandalism to a form of contemporary art gracing museums and private collections worldwide. Stohead is best known for combining a graffiti-based style with classical calligraphy to produce letters that are at once figurative and abstract. Under intense physical duress, he paints letters in individual strokes, using broad-tipped, traditional round-tipped or homemade instruments to achieve an expressive work recounting both invisible and raw emotion. His approach – which is ruminant yet harsh, extensive and stringent – recalls a type of performance art. By all means, Stohead describes his style as contemporary calligraphy and terms it Radicalligraphy, a designation that explains both his method and his upcoming solo show.

        French street artist Honet taps into both creativity and curiosity to produce his works. The former graffiti writer-turned-artist is intrigued by the remnants of former generations. His pursuit of artifacts and bio-facts, and his hunger for architecture and cultural landscapes has led him down tunnels, up on roofs, and through every other level in between. Honet records his experiences figuratively, creating illustrations that thrill the art world and provide a legacy for urbanity’s undiscovered corners. His works are like history books that tell of places forgotten, neglected or underestimated. For his current solo exhibition, Honet treads a thin line between reality and fiction. He embarks on an imaginary journey across planets, black holes and nebulae, probing into biology, histology, anatomy and mythology. There is a collaboration with French artists Ketty Sean and L’Outsider midway, before the tour concludes with Initiation to Fantastic Realism, a showcase of canvases, screen prints, sculptures, photos and post cards.
