Francisco Bosoletti is a young Argentinian street artist known for his large-scale murals, his poetic imagery and interesting artistic research and experimentation, and who during the past year, has been working on what he calls the ‘Ultraviolet” project.The ultraviolet project consists in a new technique developed using ultraviolet paint and where the final result can only be fully appreciated by using a filter to look at it. The idea behind the project is, according to the artist, to make us aware of the fact that reality has many sides. Painted this way, his murals are invisible until we look beyond what is evident and we start looking at what otherwise goes unnoticed for us.
I have arrived at the well-built housings in the heart of Europe.
I have left behind the white tree in whose shade souls are cooled in the river of oblivion
My mouth quenched its thirst in the fresh fountain of Remembrance.
My voice vibrated shaking the silence
My music made breasts tremble
I have broken the laces that tighten a stunned life
I have wanted and sought suffering provided that I can find a meaning
I only found passion in the heartbeat of a hug’
Best known for his poetic and eclectic large-scale murals, Bosoletti started painting at an early age, eventually graduating from art school in 2010. As a result of constant research and experimentation, his work has developed a great deal during the past years, and going from his humble beginnings in his hometown to be invited to internationally renowned festivals like The Crystal Ship in Belgium, DesOrdes Creativas and the Italian festival Street Alps, just to mention some. A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to catch up with Francisco and ask him a few questions about his background, life, work and projects.
