Abstract linework with sponsored stamp on wall.
Artist(s): STARE


Completed: 2021

“In my work, glyphs are treated as autonomous entities that defy their usual structures. Sketches, textures, shadows, lines and outlines become fundamental elements of the Composition. In this case, I am exploiting the length of the wall to create a horizontal motion. This piece is inspired by the materials and textures of the structure itself as well as the surrounding area’s luminosity. Colorwise, the mural interacts with the architecture, creating a dialogue with the palette of its surroundings, through a contextual approach that mindfully seeks balance of tones and contrast to blend this large work with subtlety in the environment.”
