THINKSPACE GALLERY
Founded in Los Angeles in 2005, and located in the Culver City art district since 2009, Thinkspace was established with a commitment to the promotion and dissemination of young and emerging art. The gallery is a catalytic conduit for the emerging New Contemporary art scene, and is dedicated to the exposure of its tenets and its artists. This movement, straddled between popular culture, graphic art, design and street art, is subject to steadily increasing global expansion, and is in need of institutional advocates.

Thinkspace is positioned to create opportunities and a visible platform for its recognition and proliferation. The movement is young, but significant, and Thinkspace’s aim is to establish both a curatorial forum and a collector base for its output. As an institution, Thinkspace is committed to vision, risk, and the exceptional talents that wield it. From the streets, to the gallery, from the “margins”, to the white cube, Thinkspace is re-envisioning what it means to be “institutional”. As a haven for talent, and a venue founded in passion, conviction, and community, the gallery’s mandate is rooted in projections for its future longevity. We intend to be a vehicle for the talents we vet for year’s to come, and are passionate advocates for their vision and their dreams.

No Limit is featured in the Street Art Cities app

August 29, 2017By No Limit BoråsUncategorized

It all started with one street art hunter, documenting the local scene in Heerlen on a website, but meeting likeminded people turned it into a huge community, which then became Street Art Cities.

Once Street Art Heerlen website went viral and people started to demanding for street art tours, the team quickly realized the importance of a mobile application which could give all the required information and routes with street art pieces. Full story at the Street Art Cities blogg.

No Limit pretty much went the same way, but why create an app of our own when you could be part of an international dedicated community showing the best of street art around the globe? As we early got a request to put our pieces in the database for the website the answear for a partnership about the app was as solid YES!

App and our content is subject for continuous development but all the spots are featured right away. Download it today and enjoy. Of course it´s available for both iPhone and Android.

Digital fresco painting during No Limit Street Art Borås

During No Limit Street Art, curious creatives are invited to try digital fresco painting, and what might fit better than doing big-scale, in a church?

“It is a close collaboration with the Swedish church in Borås and, above all, vicar Stefan Hiller who made it possible. It’s hard to imagine a more pampering and more suitable environment for this activity, and we are very pleased to be able to host the activity in Caroli church, “says Stina Hallhagen, Project Manager No Limit Street Art.

The activity is based on a special technique developed by a Danish agency* focusing on digital design and specializing in interactive design and AV solutions for museums, all over the world.

“It works a bit like a giant book of paint. Streaked outlines are projected on the wall and anyone who wants to try uses a regular brush, directly against the wall. The brush movement is recorded, processed and in the projection a classic frieze appears at the same moment as the brush is moved. I think there will be a lot of people who are curious about this and want to test, “Stina continues.

“It’s not exactly every day a new fresco is being created, so it feels fun, new and somehow classical. Italian fresco means “fresh” or in Swedish “fräsch” if you want to be a little modern. The image of the Swedish Church in Borås as modern and fresh we would like to stand for, although the church will of course also carry important basic messages. I hope and believe that this will involve many brand new visitors in the beautiful Caroli church, “says Stefan Hiller, vicar, the Swedish Church of Borås.

The digital fresco painting can be tried Saturday and Sunday 9-10 September in Caroli church between 12.00-18.00 both days.

(Source Wikipedia) Painting al fresco, fresco painting, fresco, is a limestone painting on wet plaster.
The term comes from Italian fresco, which means “on fresh [wall]”. With fresco technology, powdered pigments are mixed with water, which is painted directly on damp, freshly ground lime pads. First, a coarse stock layer is added to dry, and then a layer of finer lime, which is the basis for the painting. The thin plaster layer is laid on a small area at a time, as much as expected to be painted before the pad dried, since the painting can not be changed after the pad has dried.

*The installation is part of a larger exhibition at The Skovgaard Museum in Viborg, Denmark and is created by YOKE, a Danish digital design agency
