Okay, I admit it: I’ve never really been a fan of graffiti. There’s just so much bad graffiti/tagging out there, so I never really gave this art form a fair chance. But, that stops now as I’ve stumbled upon Kasper F. Nielsen and his surrealistic photorealistic street art.

Kasper F. Nielsen has a fondness for Nørreport station, and some of the pieces in this exhibition are stencils on scraps from the renovation of this old train station. Kasper is inspired by thinkers such as Jean Baudrillard and Erving Goffman, and my favorite pieces are his graffitied S-train doors.

This vernissage won’t just be a display of well-executed and relevant street art, it will be an entire evening with street culture as DJ Poonyaporn Boontumma Breaks delivers the music. Don Fisso, an underground street clothing brand, will be displaying the latest collection characterized by the break dance movement and culture.

Depending on what you’re up for, you can also see the exhibition the day after, on Saturday. This will be a more classic have-a-glass-of-wine-while-you-walk-around-the-exhibition-listening-to-some-quiet-background-music event. No matter what you choose, go see this exhibition – Even if you’re not a breakdancing hand signs-throwing homeboy.

If you’re busy on the 2th or 3th, the exhibition will be at VESS until the 7th of March.
