Today another young Italian artist caught my attention. Giulio Vesprini defines himself as an independent artist being part of a wave of progressive artists in the graffiti and street art scene for the past few years. One of the most fascinating recent developments in the street art visuals are the deconstructive and minimal approach of some artists like Vesprini himself.
His abstractions enhances public spaces with elegant and minimalist images, often interacting with the surroundings. Vesprini explain his work as follows:
“[…]…My research focused on several fronts including land art and urban culture. I prefer simple lines similar to my graphic and architectural origins. I draw primitive design by graphic signs, illustrations and urban actions. My works are born from minimal culture where the shape represents the main idea.
I think that my freehand drawing symbolizes abstract expressionism
where I often feel to reach a perfect work…]”
Beautiful, simple and poetic geometric work…
