JAZ-Melbourne-1

Franco Fasoli (JAZ) is still in Australia where he just finished a couple of murals in Melbourne after a wonderful participation at the Public Forms Festival in Perth.
Like many urban artists, Jaz began his creative career in the streets as a graffiti writer moving fast away from letter-based graffiti and starting experimenting with figurative pieces inspired by Argentinian culture, hooligan culture and Mexican lucha libre culture. His very unique technique, where he blends unconventional materials such as asphaltic paint and petrol, enabled him to paint huge murals which resemble delicate watercolour paintings, like the ones we see here. Wonderful pieces.
