Here are a few images of “Fili”, Italian painter and muralist Vesod Brero newest mural painted for the Question Mark Milano project in Milan curated by Iris Barak.

‘Fili’, as the mural was titled, features the image of a couple embracing each other. Their naked bodies caught surrounded by trapping ropes that limit their movement. Especially striking is the face of the man, that completely tied contrasts with the soft appearance of the woman’s body, who turning her back to the viewer, sticks to her partner in search of protection. The realistic depiction of the couple stands in stark contrast to the geometric environment around them offering an interesting illusion of three-dimensionality.

Like the rest of his work, reflects his artistic research and evolution, exploring the dimensionality of the canvas through geometric forms and figuration.
Fascinated by Futurism since an early age and deeply influenced by his father, an Italian surrealist painter Dovillo Braro, Vesod has forged through the years a solid and unique style characterised by the use of stylised deconstructions of the human figure, staggered motion with focus on depicting optical and temporal space, and bright geometric abstractions, all reflective of that “eternal present”.

Mathematics and physics theories are part of the artistic development of  the Italian artist playing an important role in his work integrating futuristic dynamics and geometric shapes in order to represent space and time in three dimensions. Vesod strives for his artwork to figuratively detach people from a sense of time using a classical style to create a prism effect and filter his artworks through patterns of spindly diamonds geometric, and creating shapes that represent an eternal present, an instant before.
