Featured Artist Friday: City-Inspired Street Murals by Millo
Italian artist Francesco Camillo Giorgino, also known as Millo, has major style painting these large-scale murals featuring some oddly giant and monotone residents while they explore their creatively depicted urban city.
Only using simple black and white lines with dashes of color when necessary, he also has a knack for incorporating the elements of the architecture into his multi-story creations too. In 2014, Millo apparently won the B.Art competition which gave him the opportunity to paint no less than 13 large murals in the city of Turin, Italy (freaking awesome!). And even though the characters might be the ones grabbing the visual attention, I think its how they interact with the city that is the underlying concept. The city might be the playground for the giant inhabitants, but the idea of how they work within and become apart of the city that might be the message.
