”Close up” is the title of this amazing mural painting realized by Nevercrew in Lugano (Switzerland) for Arte Urbana Lugano (Città di Lugano), for 2020.
This work wants to evoke at the same time an estrangement and a focus on a little part of the balance in which we’re all involved. A perceptual estrangement from the overall balance, from the awareness of each one’s role in it, but also a physical distortion and a forcing that comes from human attitudes and actions.
A balanced structure that’s apparently decontextualized and simultaneously heavily connected with the context, and that in relation with the context highlights its fragility when proportions are no longer how they should be. A small part taken from the whole that surrounds us and affects us all.
Arte Urbana Lugano:
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
