Next in the long line of talented artists participating of this year’s ALT!rove Festival is Dutch artist Jerome Erosie who painted, not one, but three murals in the neighbourhood of Piano Casa in Catanzaro, Italy.
Drawing inspiration from his own work and the neighbourhoods colours and mood, creates Erosie three murals as part of a triptych titled “Linguaggio Universale” or Universal language. It took three days to complete with permission and help from of the residents of the area and are a good example of Erosies work.
A graduate with honours from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam Erosie’s style addresses different disciplines such as graffiti, conceptual art, illustration and typography, just to mention some, and has over the years gradually developed an unique abstract and intuitive visual language able to reflect his own state of mind and visual approach also visible here.
