Saldi – Rome 2014

It has been a while since the French Adbusters OX published new pieces on his blog, but here are some of them.
Working for years with collages and a minimalistic imagery on billboards around the world, creates OX colorful urban interventions called by the artist “Affichages“.
His visual language is reflective and minimalistic: mono- and polychromatic stripes and shapes are often reminiscent of artists like Daniel Buren where architectural and colour accents in the urban context are reinterpreted and posted ads are breached by reduced optical illusions or replaced by geometric compositions, always drawing its power from the friction with its urban context. Just like in the two pieces here closely related to their surroundings.
The following pieces where created/painted in Rome, Bobigny (a town in the northeastern suburbs of Paris) and Nancy located in the north-eastern French department of Meurthe-et-Moselle and reflect his sense of humor and wittiness.
