The artist Francesco Camillo Giorgino, known as Millo, recently made a mural in the city where he was artistivally born and from which he left for the five continents. In fact, in Pescara, the artist returns to paint after twenty years of absence and does it in great style on a surface of more than 190 square meters.
Millo chose to work in the Fontanelle district, in order to spotlight this decentralized area of the city.A woman, a trite-flesh of memories and a child’s room at the center of the sterile and alienating metropolitan scenario of our day.
With primary colors, fleeting brushes, essential features, Millo’s “Dream” is about traditions, dreams and hopes, despite the grungy of contemporary cities, populated almost exclusively by palaces and cars.
The artistic direction was entrusted to the Collective Pepe, a landmark for the area of creativity and urban sensibility. After the recent experience with the Street Art Festival at Città S.Angelo and the usual annual appointment with Behance Portfolio Review, the organizers have been involved with the organization of one of the largest murals ever made by Millo.
Born in Mesagne (BR), after architectural studies, he carried on a personal aesthetic research in the field of painting, focusing on the relationship between an individual and urban space, alternating between macro and micro scale. In fact, his characters, exaggeratedly disproportionate to the scenario in which they are placed, represent the human being in his solitary condition in the metropolis. Paintbrush technique, black and white with color spells, to represent a world, the many worlds of Millo (#milloland). He painted in Russia, China, USA, Australia, Thailand, Argentina, Chile, Morocco, Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Poland, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and, of course, Italy. His works have been exhibited in Los Angeles, Chicago, Berlin, London, Amsterdam and several cities in Italy.
