Berlin-based artist Clemens Behr is now in Italy invited by the ALTrove street art festival in Catanzaro where he created this magnificent mural.
The mural, a warm up for the ALTrove’s 2015 edition titled ABSTRACTISM – space>place, is a great example of Behr’s work where single architectural parts, shapes, colors and surfaces are detached and then reassembled describing the given space in a deconstructive way.
“ABSTRACTISM – space>place”, taking place from 30th April to 9th May, will explore the possibilities to wonder about the concept of urban area by means of abstractism that is combining a deepened artistic research that “brings out balances, distances, extensions and forms’ clearness, rethinking new arrangements, concepts and actions in order to provide the otherwise unnatural landscape with humanity.
The festival, already inaugurated by Clemens Behr, will count with the participation of artists as 108, Alberonero, Giorgio Bartocci, Ciredz, Erosie, Graphic Surgery, Sbagliato, Sten Lex and Tellas. Certainly an exciting line-up.
