For the 3rd edition of INFART Festival, I’ve been to the beautyful city of Bassano del Grappa in order to create a mural.
L’ART COMME MIROIR DE L’AME. 6x15m. Bassano del Grapa. ITALY. 2011
After a wide period of being able to spread colors to the people, i felt like going back to a more black and white style, with just 2 colors fighting each other. Considering the format of the wall, i made a few sketches to find the right composition. And a kneeling man, holding his head in his hands, came to life on the mural.
Pen on paper. 21x30cm. 2011
I first did this sketch of a winged man about to enter somewhere, but it wasn’t coherent with my feelings of the moment. So I’ve chosen to draw more untill reaching an honest result. And finaly made a man, headless, holding his face staring at himself.
