Francesco Camillo Giorgino aka “Millo”

Would love to see all the large-scale murals of street artist Francesco Camillo Giorgino aka Millo.  The Italian painter has created murals in the United States, Russia, China, Australia, Thailand, Argentina, Chile, Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Uk, Netherland, Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and of course Italy.  Millo mainly paints his murals in black and white and often incorporates a slight touch of color emphasizing items like flying paper-planes, toys, cassettes, and greenery.  In Orb magazine he says this about his first interaction with art and about his process:

“I was born in Mesagne, a small city in the province of Brindisi in south Italy, where I attended a science high-school before moving to Pescara and graduating in architecture. Mesagne is a very small city, and at that time was very important to be focused on something after going to school, so drawing was my something. I had no other example in my family, and I cannot say why it happened, but it had been like a safe haven to me. Art was at that moment and still is, the only thing that makes me feel happy and satisfied… that’s why at a certain point in my life I could not ignore this feeling, and I start to put all of my efforts into it.”

“I usually realize my works with the help of a crane, first of all, I realize a small sketch of the character with a long pole and a brush at its end, just to place him or her on the wall, then with my brushes I start to draw hand free all the clouds, planes, streets and buildings. From the moment I’m up on the crane usually it’s only me, the wall and the brushes for 5 – 6 days.”

Warsaw-based artist Elżbieta Dymna who goes by the name NeSpoon has gained global recognition for her beautifully delicate lace art murals.  Her lace motifs cover the walls, streets, and public parks found in urban environments.  By using intricate doily patterns, the artist beautifies abandoned and unadorned spaces in unlikely urban jungles, transforming them into stunning works of art.  

Why laces? Because in laces there is an aesthetic code, which is deeply embedded in every culture. In every lace we find symmetry, some kind of order and harmony, isn’t that what we all seek for instinctively? 

Why street art? “Because it gives freedom.”
