Here are a few images of Vesod‘s newest mural painted in Nogaredo, a town located in the northern Italian region Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, about 20 kilometres southwest of Trento, Italy
Entitled “Strie” and curated by Associazione Multiverso, the new mural depicts the image of a young woman covered in chains seeing from different angles and expressing different emotional states. Her image, and the scene in general has been defragmented and in many ways incorporated into the background. The realistic depiction of the woman stands in stark contrast to the geometric environment around her offering an interesting illusion of three-dimensionality and infinite space.
This new piece reflects Vesod’s 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.
