A summary arose from a totally immersion in the modern man's mystery that has always marked him. From here the settings filled with inner motivations, silent and where time seems to hibernate the contemporary discomfort: the uncertain destiny. This unresolved invites to find a meaning and a logic where there can't be any logic: the power is exactly in this lacking balance, in the static nature that stops the time's flow and in the leading back to a familiar, but at the same time stanger, image at the same moment.

The artist is working on a series titled “Echo”, always inspired by great classics and always realized only with spray colours. The works are not a faithful copy of the original, but the great masterwork's call is presented as an echo, a past reminescence in the present, that gives life to works in which two different languages coexist: the classic one with the contemporary breakdown of spray's use that is highlighted in some details of the work. The works that we indroduce today are a preview of his first solo show “Echo in Venice” cured by Davide Rossillo that is going to be unveiled in Venice on November 2017.

  • Andrew Hem

    Andrew Hem

    Raised as the child of Cambodian immigrants in Los Angeles, Andrew Hem’s illustrative paintings bridge disparate aesthetic influences as well as cultural touchstones and sensibilities. Hem’s paintings typically highlight an individual within a group of figures, homing in on the one person who is often somberly staring out from the canvas. Using a cool palette in which the colors do not quite match up with the real world, the artist creates somber moods in illusionistic spaces set at a remove from reality. Although his color scheme—with its supernatural rendering of the natural world—elicits comparisons to impressionism, Hem also echoes graffiti art based on his straightforward and illustrative rendering of figures and space, as well as allusions to street culture, art, and fashion.Andrew realise is first wall in Italy on Memorie Urbane 2017.

  • Ernest Zacharevich

    Ernest Zacharevich

    better known as ZACH, is a Lithuanian artist whose iconic, lighthearted pieces have become enormously popular across the world. By fusing the physical world with his

    Zacharevic was born in Vilnus, Lithuania where he started out young, scribbling with crayons on his dad’s newspaper. At some point, his parents decided to take him to an art school, so his professional art education started when he was eleven. After he graduated, he went to Art Academy to study Graphic arts. ZACHAS found that experience not very inspiring and as too much of a replication of his art during school time. That is why he decided to move to London:
    “It was a very conservative boarding art school with Greek heads and not much creativity. Afterwards I went to study in London were I graduated with Fine Art BA. It was the opposite – a lot of conceptualism, not much structure.”

    But, throughout all that time, graffiti was always there, like a parallel world which, according to Ernest, was the constitution of freedom. After an education of classical arts, Ernest began to develop his works in direct contact with the public space where he intervenes the architectural landscape in a fusion between paintings and recycled objects. On his travels through places like Rome, Brussels, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore (among many) he has not seized to create admiration from the public through his outstanding murals.
    He first attracted the attention of the international art scene with the creation of large mural interventions scattered across the old town of Penang. His illustrative style and the use of stencils earned him a nickname The Malay Banksy, as he is referred to by some.

    By focusing on the spontaneity of children’s play, Zacharevic can tap into the original instincts of adult viewers who may have lost their ability to access their playful nature. His street art is unpretentious and sometimes ingenious, while steadily staying away from being cloying or overly sentimental. Ernest experiments with objects like for example bikes and old motorcycles in his paintings, giving rise to a true interaction with the local audience. His pieces take on another dimension beyond the painting and the mural in itself and create reactions which provoke an outbreak of smiling faces.

    The imagery mostly consists of children playing, but that theme can range from innocent games to handling weapons or other dangerous “toys.” Based usually on photos he takes, the paintings from Zacharevic are not only immortalizing these random people, but also the happy and playful moments they were caught in:
    “Sometimes I get inspired by architecture or the atmosphere of a place and spend time thinking for a site-specific interaction or I have an idea and I look for a right place. Usually I work with portraits so I always walk with my camera taking pictures of what I see. Later I translate it to my artwork.”

    So, at one moment in his life, Zachas found himself living in Penang, Malaysia, and transforming its streets, with a brilliant series of interactive murals. One of the projects there was Mirrors George Town, a part of George Town Festival 2012. Ernest Zacharevic’s wall paintings in George Town include figure drawings and portraits that celebrate the exuberance of life in the inner city. They range from the pensive Boy on a Bike, the lively Little Children on a Bicycle to the whimsical Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur.

  • Escif

    Escif

    Escif is a graffiti artist. He works upon the walls of his home city of Valencia, Spain (and beyond), his arresting black-and-white-and-minimal vignettes depicting strange and thoughtful scenes. The paintings are deceptively simple yet inspired and often incorporate repetitive elements drawn from his personal symbology, which oddly enough may elicit an equally strong response from the viewer.Black holes; walking walls; tumbling, floating, or falling common objects… there is a mysterious commentary spread over the urban surface that can puzzle and intrigue while somehow making perfect sense. Escif intentions ambiguity in his vertical masonry canvases. When he feels he’s getting tired and predictable, he moves on, looking for new languages that put the past in doubt and reinforce the process of eternal learning. Escif feels strongly that graffiti removed from the street loses its validity and purpose. The attempts of the established art world to embrace, incorporate, and curate the interventions that a street artist deploys on the walls of the city completely miss—no, lose—the point. He says, “Graffiti as a concept implies transgression of “public” space, and because of this its institutional adaptation ceases to have value.”

  • Etam Cru

    Etam Cru

    Graffiti duo from Poland known as Etam Cru creates large-scale murals able to transform dull cityscapes into a wonderland of colors and fantastic, fairytale elements. Two young muralists called Sainer and Bezt use the entire high-rise European buildings as their canvases. Their pieces are usually infused with hints of Eastern European folklore, such as mushrooms and forest creatures, even though it is known that these elements are also the important part of rave and psychedelic culture. The scenes that Etam Cru depicts are rarely static – on the contrary, they are action-packed, reminiscent of various graphic novels. Every aspect of their colorful murals seems to be in motion: animals and houses come to life and human characters gain abilities that defy the laws of physics.

    Both Sainer and Bezt have studied fine art at the art university of Lodz. Sainer was born in 1988 and he’s a freelancer balancing between murals, graphic design illustrations, and portraits. He enjoys portraying real objects and figures in unusual contexts so that the viewer is encouraged to immerse himself into Sainer’s surreal stories and continue them on his own. Sainer’s individual pieces can be seen throughout Europe – in Poland, Austria, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Norway,Portugal, Russia and Slovakia but also in the USA. When it comes to Bezt, he was born in 1987 and got involved in the world of graffiti in 1999. A few years later he formed a group called Etam Cru, which became very active particularly around 2008 when they started painting their trademark large-scale murals. Similarly to Sainer, Bezt also connects street art techniques with more traditional oil and acrylic painting. Etam Cru impresses their worldwide audiences with their drawing skills as well as their handling of spray cans and their mastery of classical painting with acrylics and oil. The way Sainer and Bezt unite pop-cultural with realistic imagery results in a deeply surreal, fantastic ambiance.

    Sainer and Bezt make efforts in order to combine their styles and make them blend perfectly, which yields really interesting results. Bezt is the one specializing in frescoes, while Sainer enjoys mural painting more than canvas-based works. He prefers concentrating on large pieces which are complex and take more time and energy to create, compared with typical paintings and drawings. Even through their street art didn’t win unanimous support straight away, the creativity of Etam Cru became supported by the Polish government. They recognized its cultural value and agreed on spreading it in order brighten up the dark streets of Polish cities.When asked about how they perceive their own work, Etam Cru has stated: We think everyone could find a different story behind it. It’s hard to believe that everyone reads a painting in the same way because it’s impossible. Hence, we don’t like to tell the story about a painting, it would be like closing a door for those who want to simply relax in front of a painting. In other words, Sainer and Bezt prefer to leave their art open-ended, which means their audiences can actively participate in creating meanings and reading symbols related to their colorful murals as well as canvas-based pieces. Since 2010, Polish duo has become a popular gallery exhibitor and they have had more than 15 solo and group shows which took place in 2013, 2014 and 2015.

    Given the extraordinary size of their imaginative murals as well as the great public reception of their work, it’s safe to say that the Polish street-art duo Etam Cru is one of the biggest things in European urban and street art. Even though the Poland-based team works primarily in Eastern Europe, they have created works all over the world, including their murals in the USA. Naturally, artworks of this size, scope, and quality take a lot of time and resources to create. As such, they represent the growing acceptance in mainstream society of street art, since they advocate a truly legitimate and worthwhile form of self-expression.

  • Evol

    EVOL

    Berlin-based Tore Rinkveld, aka Evol, is perhaps best known for transforming everyday features of our cityscape into miniature concrete tower blocks through the medium of paint. Inspired by architecture, which he sees as a mirror for society, he paints directly onto the surface of electric enclosures, concrete planters and other familiar elements of the modern city, as well as working on found materials such as cardboard. Drawing on his background in graffiti, he uses his artistic skills to explore the inner workings of the city and makes us look at our surroundings in a new light.
    Evol often takes photographs of buildings as he wanders around Berlin, with a particular interest in the postwar socialist architecture of the former East Germany. Although originally constructed with the ideology of a socialist utopia, areas of this city – and others like it that have been subject to governmental programmes – are, architecturally, a far cry from the original vision. Many of the buildings Evol depicts are grey, functional and in a style that has fallen out of favour, yet they have a brutalist, monumental appeal. The artist draws our attention to the striking geometry of the architecture and everyday details we sometimes take for granted: a billowing tarpaulin hung from a scaffolding, shadows cast from a balcony or light falling on a curtain. Unpopulated by figures, these works contain signs of life – the exteriors of compartments in which people live and work – but are eerily quiet.
    We are drawn into these intricacies partly because of the astonishing small scale of the works, which the artist achieves by carefully applying many layers of light and shade to build up a realistic image. With a wonderful eye for detail, he picks up all the nuances of the grey concrete buildings and reduces them down to miniature apartment blocks. Camouflage is a key element in the artist’s work. When he paints on electrical enclosure, the metal box is often drab, weathered and covered in graffiti. These features are integrated into the work, but they’re also used to play with the passer-by’s natural associations – to make us do a double take. In the blinking lights of the city centre, they invite us to take another look and remind us of the dystopian ghettos on the outskirts of the city.
    In contrast, Evol’s studio works, created on found cardboard boxes, celebrate the architecture of an earlier time – the simple Berlin townhouses built around 1910, which have survived two world wars and totalitarian regimes. These ordinary buildings are typical of the neighborhood the artist has lived in for years – relics of a bygone era that have not yet succumbed to the gentrification sweeping the area. The cardboard provides a rich patina on which to stencil, with existing marks and structures reflecting the passage of time on the walls. The printed graphics, tape and other minute details found on the cardboard also echo the distressed nature and visual pollution of real urban landscapes. In both his studio-based works and his temporary street installations, Evol reduces the environment that surrounds us to bite-sized pieces. Through this reversal of scale, he somehow renders the work harmless: while evoking a stark urban environment, they remain charming and approachable. At the same time, the artist claims small spaces for his art by re-using the existing infrastructure, transforming it subtly and simply with shades of black and white.

  • Fafa

    Fafa

    Fafa (Rafael Marquez) is an artist from Seville actually live in Swiss, who started to paint Graffiti in 1998 but he was involved with painting creation since he was a little child. In the begining he was very attracted for the hip-hop culture, so graffiti was the perfect thing for a painter to be inside of it. When he started he was also a student in fine arts school of Seville, so he was never so good in letter styles like in classic graffiti but way more in characters and landscapes... Since then he's always using the same language with different technics. Fafa finds his Inspiration in the Joy of doing it, from the joy of painting outside, but also on canvas. He learned a lot from the old masters of painting, during his studies at the art school of Seville. Fafa uses a lot of techniqes and tools, such as brushes, acrilic, oil, markers and spraycans. But he always uses only one tool fort he whole piece. One tool, but many colours, because for FAFA, there is never one colour alone. Colours always react in relation to and these combinations can make the same color look completely different, he says.

  • FRZ

    FRZ

    FRZ was born in Tabriz, an Iranian town where today he lives and works. He began painting the walls using the stencil technique, not only for an artistic choice but mostly because, in a country where street art is still illegal and where the artists are subject to a strong political censorship, it is necessary to minimize the time of realization of the walls. The artistic production of FRZ is not confined to stencil art but it is characterized by the plurality of techniques that the Iranian artist uses, from poster art to the realization of large-scale murals, up to the use of mirroring surfaces making the viewer interact directly with the work. Finally in 2014 his artistic research moves towards the motifs of Islamic art and the Persian textile tradition. For his first participation to the festival Memorie Urbane 2016, FRZ made two different bus shelters in Gaeta and a large wall in Valmontone. The Iranian artist was also one of the protagonists of the exhibition «Made in Iran» which was held at Street Art Place gallery in Gaeta

  • IHEART

    iHeart aka I♥ is a Canadian street artist who uses graffiti as a vehicle to voice his opinion on social issues. His art is focused on stenciling city walls with his heart-shaped symbol in many works. iHeart describes himself as a “just a boy with ideas, opinions and a whole lot of aerosol”. He created a series of graffiti stencils through which he tries to highlight the negative influence of social media on the growing youth, alienating people instead of bringing them closer. The artist is just as elusive as famous British artist Banksy, who has transformed his artwork from acts of vandalism to sought-after high art pieces.

    iHeart doesn’t reveal a lot about himself. Most surely he comes from Vancouver and when asked about it, he says
    “I feel like a guidance counselor when I talk about Vancouver. It has so much potential but applies itself inappropriately. Vancouver is a young, dynamic and creative city, but is way too distracted.”
    His simple but smart stencils one can find mainly in Vancouver and Calgary. Much like disdain for distraction, the street artist of only few years, isn’t interested in fame either:
    “Anonymity is a must. I think a lot of people fantasize about the idea of celebrity, but the little taste I got was really overwhelming and awkward.”

    Street art, StenciliHeart – Nobody Likes Me

    Nobody Likes Me by iHeart

    Either way, he became instantly recognizable artist with his piece “Nobody Likes Me” located in Stanley Park, Vancouver. The work depicts a boy who’s sad and dissatisfied with the fact that he has zero likes, mentions and followers on his Instagram account. This artwork has gained worldwide attention online, including from Banksy, one of the street art world’s biggest names. iHeart received an endorsement from Banksy through his Facebook page. It went viral almost instantly – within only a day, the photo on Banksy’s Facebook page has clocked 117,000 likes and 13,500 shares!
    However, that wasn’t part of the plan for the artwork’s creator. He describes a situation as ironic:
    “There’s almost too much irony that happened with this piece. Posting it on Instagram, Facebook, my website, and Twitter, then it going viral. Basically the idea behind the piece completely backfired”.
    iHeart never wanted fame, considering the celebrity he enjoys now “overwhelming and awkward”. Grand finale came when the piece has been named the second most popular mural in the world for 2014 by London-based StreetArtNews. Of course, the most popular piece in the world at the time was by, you’re guessing, the famous graffiti artist Banksy.

  • Jan Kalab

    Jan Kalab

    When Jan Kaláb was born in 1978 in Czechoslovakia, graffiti was not to be seen in the Eastern World. In the nineties, as the country was opening itself to western influences, he became one of the pioneer of the local scene, and founded an iconic crew, the DSK. Sleepless nights around train yards, light tubes at police stations and above all hard work on his style: he went through all the classical steps of a writer’s career. Through Europe, he made a name for himself as Cakes. Next step to the Hall of fame: New York, where he made a big impression by painting whole cars in 2000, alongside with Key and Rome. Around the same time, he found a new way to push his own limits and challenge himself: 3-D Graffiti. Under the name of Point, he sculpted huge abstracts letters he chose to put in the streets and on the walls. The highest the better. This was another form of graffiti, in daylight, and without a spray, but truthful to the spirit of competition and innovation of the urban scene. Those sculptures lead him to abstraction, a path he’s been exploring through canvas from 2007, using acrylic painting and brushes. In the meantime, this admirer of Kupka graduated from the Academy of fine Arts of Prague – becoming the first Czech writer to do so. Jan Kaláb had his first solo exhibition in 2008 in Prague. Others solos took place in Romania, Argentina, Germania or in the United States. With time, his forms became more and more geometric. He used colourful squares and circles as an obsessive vocabulary for infinite variations around depth, time, and motion. Playing with circles conveyed organic imperfection and swing into his work. Dynamic is also crucial in his recent experiments, when he took pictures of some of his paintings in the streets of New York or other cities. The project became a social one when he realised he needed help from strangers to carry the canvas. This is no surprise, since collective energy is crucial in his creative process. The artist is very invested in collective events. He’s the co-creator of a highly dynamic cultural space in Prague, called Trafačka. More than 160 exhibitions took place there from the opening in 2006 till the closure in 2015. On his own or collectively, the motto is the same: always getting higher, always inventing new forms – a tribute to the soul of graffiti

  • Khamoosh

    Khamoosh

    The true identity of this artist, like the identity of mostly all his Iranian colleagues, is not known for security's reasons. Khamoosh was born in Teheran in 1989 and started making graffiti in 2007. He approaches the street art world going to Apadana district, in the city's west side. This place represents the roots of the Iran's graffiti history during the 1979's revolution. Here the young artist had the opportunity to discover A10NE's works and then he understood what he was looking for: he felt “the urgency to write on the walls”. Khamoosh's style went through an evolution with the passing of time, at the beginning and for many years he focused on the use of persian calligraphic elements. After experimenting different artistic expressions at about three years ago he defined his unmistakable style, he started using constantly the “knife” image. The famous Khamoosh's “knives” are a perfect combination between shapes and letters, the message he aims to share throught the knife's images is hidden in their blade, graffiti represent a weapon for the artist:<>. Khamoosh realizes his works drawing free hand using mostly varnish spray and paintbrushes. Beyond affirming himself among the leaders of Iran's street art and cooperating with many Iranian street artists, for example Nirone, Khamoosh passed his national borders coming in some eurpean countries. In 2010 he had the opportunity to compare with the contemporary artistic italian reality taking part at the Stick My Pop-Street & Pop Art Expo, in Rome.

    Kunstrasen

    The life of Kunstrasen is kind of mystery. We know that he grews up in a little village in the south-west of Germany. His tag name combines the word "Kunst", which means art or artificial in German, and "Rasen" which means grass. The reference to something artificial is related to his artistic production, since in his ironic and irreverent artworks Kunstrasen expresses the contradictions and paradoxes of contemporary society and of the world of contemporary art. However, “rasen” also means “speeding” in German.

    Mad

    Street art and graffiti are still considered to be a crimes in many countries, but in Iran the situation is even more serious because street art and graffiti are not recognised as art, they are classed as satanism and slogan against the nation. For these reason Iranian street artists live and work under anonymously. That is exactly why some of them moved to other countries, like ICY & SOT or CK1 emigrated to U. S. A., but others are still living in Iran, where they try to spread their art. One of this is MAD, about his life we only know that he grew up in Tabriz, he thrived during the street tumult that followed the disputed presidential election of 2009. MAD’s works are influenced by Iranian government’s censorship also in other aspects, he uses stencil for its speed execution and his art focus on social problems, wars and, obviously, censorship.

  • Martin Whatson

    Martin Whatson

    Martin Whatson (b.1984) is a Norwegian street artist best known for his calligraphic scribbles in grayscale voids. Over the past decade, Martin has developed an unmistakable aesthetic combining abstract movement with figurative stencilled compositions. His works can be seen to mirror the rise and fall of the streets, as he symbolically recreates the urban environment, then vandalises it to reveal his vibrant transformations.

    Growing up in Oslo Norway, Martin was an active part of the emerging graffiti scene of the early 90’s which at the time maintained zero tolerance. The physical architecture of the city was a constant inspiration, the elaboration and destruction of each generation contributing to the urban infrastructure. The same deconstructive processes can be seen in his creative influences of Jose Parla and Cy Twombly. In the early 2000s, this interest in layers became more literal with the introduction of stencils into his work. The evolution moved him closer to a simple yet effective aesthetic he believed could bridge the gap between the passion and spontaneity Graffiti held for him, with the fragility and transience of nature. This balance would come to define his creative approach.

    With as many works on walls as on canvas and paper, the relationship between vulnerability and strength remains constant in each work. Delicate and organic characters feature; butterflies, ballerinas and animals all rendered in empty grayscale space. Almost stylised, these minimal figures are constructed of a few layers of hand-cut stencils. The ashen tones of the compositions and vacant backgrounds are reminiscent of his alternative canvases, the concrete. True to form, no gray space stays gray for long in Martins presence. whether immersing entirely or embellishing a detail, the images disappear beneath expressive, spray-painted strokes of assorted colours and textures.

    Martins work features with festivals, projects and walls globally. His original work can be found in private collections and institutions with solo exhibitions featured in cities from Tokyo to LA, London to New York.

  • Maya Hayuk

    Maya Hayuk

    is an American multidisciplinary artist, famous for her paintings and enormous murals that can be seen all around the world. Her pieces have composite, and yet harmonized structure and form, emphasized through the use of exuberant and lush colors, and shades. This painter absorbs immediate encirclement, processes it in her imagination by adding psychedelic experience and a mix of the popular culture referents, and then represents it to the viewers in her artworks. Maya’s paints contain a certain sexual and spiritual note, expressed by bright geometric compositions, and made of a waste spectrum of materials like ink, acrylic, spray color, tape, and wheat paste. Hayuk’s artworks are amazingly large, but also attractive and gentle at the same time.

    Leaving no surface, discipline, or location untouched, Maya Hayuk makes use of an unbounded and unpredictable matrix of sources, mediums, and styles. Her relationship to the images she invents is an intricate and complex free association and a perspicacious act of unfailingly putting all the parts together to make the whole. She employs intense yet pertinent colors, complex geometries, and fine lines in order to collect the constituents that make up her present and visceral world.

    A veritable workaholic who at once possesses the expertise of an entrepreneur and the spontaneity of the works she makes, it is immediately obvious that she is much, much more: muralist, photographer, printmaker, designer, curator, player of records, writer, performer, collector, Barnstormer, painter, illustrator, videographer, documentarian, and on.

    Her obsession with symmetry and her collection of images of mandalas, playing cards, hexes, totem poles, Ukrainian Easter eggs, quilts and bandanas play out in works that espouse the traditional as well as the innovative. A cat’s cradle of six magic hands seemingly spinning, a burst of strings in the sky like liquid streamers, and giant two faced birds with faceless people made of elaborate patterns, dappled wood grain and loads of hair exist in ambiguous landscapes scattered with oil wells, flags, flowers, feathers, and fingers. Longhaired couples matter-of-factly stick their limbs into each other’s bellies and turn into tree branches that twist into mountains of wood, walls, and paper made with paint, ink, and gusto. Maya Hayuk’s wild and unabated imagery may appear chaotic but she has mastered an exact and resolute practice.

    Hayuk also executes human-scaled designs like small run books and prints, skateboard decks, shoes, photo essays, t-shirts, buttons, group shows, mix tapes and smaller drawings and paintings.

    Photographing musicians has fueled Hayuk’s livelihood for the last few years and she has enthusiastically designed and illustrated posters and record covers for Prefuse 73, Savath and Savalas, Jackie-O Motherfucker, Oakley Hall, Om, and Devendra Banhart. Also, under the moniker Open Arms, Hayuk has been making hilarious and poignant holiday tribute music videos with Home-guitarist Andrew Deutsch, including one for the garage rock band Awesome Color. Her penchant for music, coupled with the process of collaboration, is akin to musicians jamming. About these “killer jams” she says, “Collaborating with other artists is what I'd imagine playing in a band would be like.

    Hayuk continues to produce work that is social, dynamic and out there for anyone and everyone to take in and discover. She continuously gives herself over to places, people and projects in a true communal bohemian fashion, working collaboratively as well as in a reproducible way, in her murals and prints respectively.

    The immediacy of printmaking as well as mural making has long endured history as a collaborative, politically charged and often underground activity. Works in multiples are accessible, distributable, and relatable in their abundance. Murals reach the masses and speak to an audience often inaccessible and disregarded. Hayuk’s degree in Interrelated Media and Philosophy gives her foundations in leftist principles and her work embraces the vernacular of the people. She is part political activist, part social enthusiast and she astutely relies on the printing press for her more sublimely political pieces.

    The collaborative projects and interactions that Hayuk has become increasingly known for have an impact in a productive way that a lot of contemporary or fashionable work completely lacks. Her instinctive large-scale paintings directly effect public spaces and are genuine interventions that enrich their environment. They are completed with the help of friends such as the Barnstormers collective and Hayuk remains expectant and accepting of the give and take associated with such joint efforts.

    There is something very classic rock punk folk rainbow peace freak out about Maya Hayuk that is very hard to put a finger on, but really it’s all about love. As if kindled by her distinguishing heart-shaped insignia signature, Hayuk’s disposition and practice eschew unpleasantries and welcome the irony and satire of real life.

Quello di Naf Mk è un universo pop contaminato da elementi iconici attinti dalla tradizione, religiosa e culturale, e dall’attualità che lo street artist rielabora attraverso l’uso di colori vitaminici dall’allure lomografico e associazioni figurative provocatorie ed ironiche. La curiosità per ciò che accade nel mondo, lo stimola ad intraprendere progetti di impegno e coinvolgimento sociale come quello realizzato con i ragazzi dell’Istituto Penale Minorile di Airola (BN).

He works on decentralized spaces, completely shifting the paradigm of urban art, moving its margins way out of the center of its creation.

  • Paco Pomet

    Paco Pomet


    Paco Pomet writes: "Since my childhood, the observation of different states of light in certain landscapes has been the trigger, and in many cases the condition, which fostered an intense aesthetic experience. Generally associated with dusk, at twilight, although often embodied in the vertical and oppressive light of the summer midday, this intense experience before the light and the landscape could provoke fear and anguish on some occasions or, on the contrary, an overwhelming enthusiasm. The difference between a painful experience or an enthusiastic one rested in a certain whim of the spirit that I have not always been able to control.

    In the majority of occasions this experience was translated into a joy, a reverential communion before the ecstatic beauty of the spectacular unfolding of the world. A celebration of ‘being in the world,’ a commemoration of ‘the figure and the landscape.’ But, in others, this experience was tinged with hurt before the immensity of the world along with the consciousness of lightness, smallness and finitude of one’s self-existence. In these cases, the landscape revealed itself as a sinister scenario where the changes of light were filled with threatening intentions, showing the disturbing vastness of the space as well as the awareness of the inevitable passage of time."

It is this focus which has come to define their work. First italian wall in 2017.

Equally disciplined in traditional painting and printmaking techniques, Sweet Toof masterfully blends urban detritus with bygone decadence. Fusing ancient methods with modern materials, Sweet Toof’s imagery combines layers of historical and current cultural references to create unconventional, iconoclastic art that is at once both traditional and contemporary.
