Klughaus Gallery is proud to present, “Keys To The City,” a solo exhibition featuring recent works by Jurne. Striking a delicate balance between contemporary abstract design, calligraphy and traditional graffiti letterform, Jurne’s artwork is a seamless combination of timeless and modern.
“Keys To The City” will showcase the acclaimed graffiti writer Jurne’s transition from large-scale exterior work to fine art. “Keys To The City” exhibits a combination of text-based décollage paintings as well as abstract geometric calligraphy compositions on found vellum Parisian maps from a 2010 trip abroad. This exhibition provides a narrative for Jurne’s approach to his work through a short film, also titled “Keys to the City.” The film is a collaborative work between Jurne and Lea Bruno, an accomplished Bay Area videographer who has worked alongside Jurne for the past few years, and created films featuring some of the world’s premier graffiti artists. This film is an exploration of the “Keys To The City” body of work, as well as a look inside Jurne’s creative approach and unique lifestyle.

The exhibit will be on display through December 1, 2012
