Known for their stunning individual work and fabulous collaborations, Polish street art duo Michał SEPE Wrega (graduate of the Academy of Art in Warsaw) and Daniel Chazme Kalinowski (graduate of Architecture and Town-Planning Faculty in Warsaw), attended recently the first edition of the START Street Art Festival in Assago, Italy for which they created this amazingly haunting mural.

Titled ‘Deaf Phone’, partners in crime for a while now Chazme and Sepe depict a series of people listening to the sound coming from a string telephone, looking confused as the telephone doesn’t seem to emit any sound. The constructivist style of the city painted by Chazme meets the expressivenes of Sepe’s figurative style defined by delicate but deliberate brush, giving shape to a haunting composition where human lives, people, seem to be confronted with the massive and cold figures of the city. Confusion and alienation.
