Artist of the moment….Street Artist Agostino Iacurci

Agostino Iacurci is a street artist based out of Italy. He was born in Foggia, in the southern region of Italy in the year 1986. Iacurci does it all as far as creating art. He paints murals, illustrates books, and painting on canvases for gallery exhibitions.

A large influence on the artist was Bruno Munari, an Italian painter who lived from 1907 to 1998. He worked with a style that emphasized geometric shapes with strong and bold color. Below an example of Munari’s work.

Iacurci started his graffiti painting in 1998, at the age of twelve, and first started to write and make tags. He was not inspired by this type of art but found street artists whose work he enjoyed such as Os Gemeos, the twins from Brasil and Blu.

price range information: Sorry none available.

In this clip we view the artist making a very large work for the 2013 Biennale:

Worked on a collaborative work at a prison. The project was shot with film and a documentary is being made about the process.

Iacurci enjoys working outside and doing murals and street art as he gets instant feedback from the people passing by.

Currently based out of Rome, Italy.

Below a montage of works by Iacurci. What a fun and whimsical style!
