“Graffiti Puzzle”: “The wall shows a graffiti of one of the most historical Italian Crew: the VMD 70′S. The graffiti has been removed from the wall on which it was located and divided into so many pieces as a conceptual puzzle. “Graffiti Puzzle” is a tribute to the culture of the street and, at the same time, put the graffiti at the same level of Classic Art: one example are the typical paintings of Van Gogh often used for the puzzle.”
“Cornerstone, which is made up of many small pieces of historical italian writers, wants to be the first symbolic stone of a subculture that is now so ingrained in the collective imagination to become a real Culture.”
“Someone”: “This work is realized with a portion of the collection of Graffiti that I’ve collected in 18 months on the streets of Italy. The communicative intent is to give importance to the artwork and not to its author. Although this is a provocation depriving Graffiti of the tag of the writers, the work is a tribute to the movement: this Culture is done by many people, and thanks to all that “someone” discovers his true nature.”
“Come to see my graffiti collection”: “More than 200 samples from some of pieces of Italian writers. The samples were taken from the walls already chipped. The culture of graffiti here is treated like any other theme in the history of humanity. The act of collecting samples makes this Culture immortal and precious.”

Schöne Gruppenausstellung in Turin: “Public Arena” mit BR1, Markus Butkereit, Elfo, Fra.Biancoshock, Gec, dottporkas & The Wa. “The arena in which these artists choose to set up their “actions”, in accordance with each one’s practices and strategies, reveals a clear etymological and cultural drift of the term “Street Art”: the urban intervention opens up to experimentations on the edge between design, art photography, relational aesthetics and Net Art. The illegality, or rather the voluntary violation of forbidden areas, public or private, real or virtual, unites all the actions and determines their nature of opposition and denunciation. The focus of their works is headed for the inconsistencies of the global socio-political system, which becomes the subject of a creative and visual research that reveals the precarious balance and the misleading prophecies of the contemporary world.” Via: Mail
