Agostino Iacurci just completed this new mural for Memorie Urbane in Arce, Italy.
Entitled “Homo Paleolicus” the new mural features one of Iacurci’s signature characters mounted on a paper plane and flying over a what it seems a volcanic landscape.
As usual, his work is characterised by an illustrative stroke, bright tones and flat, coloured backgrounds where the desire to speak to its public becomes essential. Helped by a visual vocabulary able to condense stories open to various levels of reading creates Iacurci figures and characters that seem suspended in time and that makes us rediscover their narrative power and the urban context in which they were created. Lovely earth colours that seem to blend in with it’s surroundings.
