Italian artist 2501 was recently in Rome where he painted this interesting mural curated by Wunderkammern Gallery.
Titled Axonometry of the circle rendered through 2501’s signature style, visually stunning with an almost hypnotic line work in a monochromatic colour scheme that emphasizes his technique.
It’s also this wavy line work of solid black that gives his work a certain sense of 3-dimensionality and softness, even when confronted with the otherwise stiff, geometrical shapes he paints. It is this ability to switch between figuration and abstraction continuously interlacing each other and giving form to a well-balanced and elegant composition where the sporadic splashes of colour not only give the piece a warm look, but also seems to bind all the elements of the composition together by providing the viewer with several focal points.
