Finnish contemporary artist Egs is one of the most successful of his generation. As one of the first clearly graffiti-rooted artists in Scandinavia Egs had a major solo show in Helsinki’s Kunsthalle in 2018. 2020 he was exhibited at The Finnish Glass Museum and in the summer of 2021 he was part of the Helsinki Biennale.
This is an offshoot from his successful book Writing Stories with Three Letters, which was published in 2020. In this fanzine Egs continues to show his universe through diverse techniques and materials – glass, paper, spray on concrete – and through a number of styles: graffiti, drawings, sculptures and more.
In two texts, author Mike R. Watson and Dokument Press’ editor dig into the meaning of Egs’ art and the environment where he chooses to paint – the ruins of modern society, made of concrete.
Concrete Reflections is printed in 400 copies, whereof 200 are sold during Egs exhibition in Berlin.
Graphic design by Egs & Musta Kirahvi.
