Artist of the moment……….Street Artist Tellas

 

 

 

Tellas is a street artist renown for his abstract style of art. The artist is inspired by patterns found in nature in wood, leaves, and birds.

Tellas is based out of Italy.

In this clip we view Tellas working in collaboration with street artist Gloois on a wonderful mural. Its great to see how they build up the image from start to finish. Tellas often uses a drips in his works:

I find Tellas similar to other street artists who work with the same subject matter cleverly combining their art with what is already in their surroundings. Some artists might use a bush or leaves as hair for a figure. Tellas’ work has a lot of movement and the fluid nature of his work keeps the viewers eye moving even when looking at a multiple story mural.

We close by watching a time lapse video of Tellas working on a unique mural that uses two sides of a building to make a wonderful abstract design:

I enjoy the fact that this artist is one of few shona artists specializing in floral and leaf works. Mupumha has fun with shapes and leaves are very animated and filled with energy as if blowing in the wind.
