I’m enjoying these two new works by 2501 in Bastiglia, Italy. They were painted for the Icone 5.9 Festival, where each artist in the festival paints a wall in a different town in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. Last May, an earthquake measuring a magnitude of 5.9 hit the region, hence the name of the festival and the motivation behind it.
I especially like this second wall because it’s part of 2501’s Dynamic Influences series, where he works with the space he is given and embraces the changing shadows as part of the work rather than thinking of the shadows as a hindrance to properly viewing the piece.
