"The Omnipollo" by Karl Grandin at Kuvva Gallery is live!
The universe behind the beer.
01 OCTOBER 2014, AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS
SummaryKarl Grandin is a Stockholm-based designer and illustrator who has for the past four years formed the designer half of Omnipollo, a nomadic brewing project that designs and brews small-scale batches of craft beer. This time around, Grandin and Omnipollo co-founder Henok Fentie brewed a purple-pink sour wheat, made with raspberries and key lime especially for Kuvva Gallery and our guests to enjoy!
The exhibition runs from September 18th, 2014 till November 3th, 2014 at Kuvva Gallery, Pazzanistraat 33, 1014 DB, Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
About the exhibition
After a successful opening, "The Omnipollo" by Karl Grandin continues until November 3rd, complete with a full, three-and-a-half meter tipi designed by the artist. In addition to this, the Omnipollo beer made especially for the show, a sour-wheat beer with raspberries and key lime called Karl Framboise, is now for sale in Kuvva Gallery. And of course, the art of Karl Grandin continues to decorate the space. Eye-catching and colourful, his works are presented in simple, clear and graphic aesthetics that become a trippy, impressionistic roadmap of the Omnipollo universe. The works in this exhibition, inspired as much by fine arts artists such as Hieronymus Bosch as by punk and skating subcultures, invite the viewer to navigate and reorder Omnipollo’s world in their own way, while enjoying some quality brew from this Swedish duo.

Gallery 33/Kuvva Gallery
We are also very excited to announce a change that has been a long time coming. As of the 18th of September Gallery 33 has renamed itself Kuvva Gallery. Many may know the online platform Kuvva, built by Present Plus, an innovation studio that creates videos, products, and technology. Kuvva has as its aim to support and elevate the illustration community by providing a platform through which artists can show and sell their work. Gallery 33 worked in much the same way, albeit offline, and as the years went by we found that our philosophies corresponded more and more.
Though our name has changed, we are still housed in the same location, an old factory located in the Westergasterrein, Amsterdam. The building is a hybrid work and exhibition location that houses both Kuvva Gallery and Present Plus. Present Plus is an innovation studio that creates videos, products, technology, and stories. The Present Plus team built WeTransfer, Kuvva, One Minute Wonders and Artists & Algorists.
