Italian artist Alessandro Battisti aka Etnik was until recently in Germany where he painted two murals, one in Neuss and one in Gießen.
The mural above was painted in Giessen for the River Tales Project 2014 whilst the second one was painted in Neuss for the 25th Alte Post Anniversary. Both murals being a true expression of his work characterized by a great sense for balance and composition and a kind of architectonic perspective where buildings and urban areas become disintegrated just to be reassembled again in his own particular and metaphysical way. Great work as always.
