Franco Fasoli (JAZ) is back in France where he just finished this new mural for the always great Bien Urbain Festival in Bensacon, France.
Titled “El peso de la historia” /”The Weight of History” featuring his usual imagery of confronting creatures.
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 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 one we see here.
Founder and editor of Urbanite. Street Art lover who after the finishing her MA thesis on the muralist movement in the 1920-50s, developed a fascination for street art and graffiti that eventually led to collaborations with different art blogs, including the creation of this one.
