Pixel Pancho: “Teseo e il Minotauro” in Rome

Today we have new images of Italian painter/sculptor/installation artist Pixel Pancho doing a mural in the Primavelle district in Rome just after his new solo show at Varsi Gallery. Reimagining the mythological as robotic, his violent struggles are at once crushing and sensual, brutally lyrical, animatronically efficient.

Just enough gauzy romance remains in the details for neighbors in this famously popular suburb to appreciate the modern take on a classical story, and Pixel Pancho continues his passionate onward march across walls of cities around the world.
