Italian street artist Giulio Vesprini just sent a few images of his latest mural ‘Cerchio G21’ painted for the “Prison Camp PG 70”, Oltre Conceria Project in Fermo, Italy, that intends to bring life to old abandoned industry sites and transform them into multipurpose community centres.
With a background in architecture and graphic design, Vesprini’s work successfully merges both worlds giving shape to what he calls ‘Archigrafia’. His work is often composed by two main elements: geometry and abstract shapes, and botanical elements. These botanical elements, often wild flowers, symbolise the strength of nature and its ability to prevail and regain that that once was lost.
For ‘Cerchio G21’, Vesprini chooses the image of the poppy, not only a common weed in Europe and the official symbol of Remembrance Day, but also a symbol of rebirth, just like the surrounding buildings of this mural.
