Here are a handful of in-progress shots at Memorie Urbane 2014 featuring Etnik and Millo at work on their site-specific pieces. The festival appears to be a departure from standard “urban art” aerosol jams because of its sensitivity to the location and historical considerations in the siting of artists – which makes this more of an edifying mural program.
Etnik is an Italian/Swede artist who calls Italy home and began his outdoor art career with graffiti. Now he has moved from the letter forms associated with traditional graffiti style to an examination of geometric forms interacting in a multi-dimensional field.
Millo completed his massive wall mid April – a dream like system of symbols and icons; highways and cities and a sliced self portrait floating amidst and above it all. The Mesagne born native studied architecture and illustrates the innerworkings of his mind to “reveal the transience of human existence, suspended somewhere between what we know and what is hidden inside us,” he writes on his website.
