Luigi Loquarto was in Athens and just finished his mural for Athens Street Art Festival, curated by Andreas C Tsourapas and a group of committed individuals who are guided by a passionate belief in the power of art.
About The Mural
Entitled “Accumulo” the painted wall follows the characteristic features of the artistic research of Loquarto, aimed to defining nature through geometry, where black and white interact to define new balances; an “organic geometry” that orders the surrounding spatiality. In his research, the stones – “the stone of Trani”, birthplace of the artist, those of dry stone walls and those of the sea – are accumulated to compose new surfaces in which full and empty, contingent elements by definition, underline that delicate balance that is at the basis of nature itself.
