lek-sowat-villa-medici-1French artists Sowat and Lek, best known for their amazing Mausolee project back in 2010, created a few days ago another amazing light installation in collaboration with Spectaculaires in occasion of Villa Medici’s 350 years.
The work consisted on a series of projections of the artist’s work displayed over Villa Medici’s main façade. The new piece is part of a year-long residency program at Villa Medici that started last year with another monumental installation in the same building.
Their often large-scale frescos, are characterised by typographical motifs traditionally used in graffiti and transformed into a form of architecturally influenced abstraction as we can see in the beautiful images below.
