Artists that prefer to hide their identity - behind a mask, the first one that pops up (taken into account the crazy publicity stunt of the last two weeks) is Banksy. .
🏙Street art is the field where protecting ones identity is not only a caprice but rather necessity to avoid legal trouble for ‘damaging the immovable state property’. .
💡Manu Invisibile - a young Italian street artist of Sardinian origin, is no exception to the rule, he made the geometric metallic mask an integral part of his emploi.
The subject of his are the verbal concepts “Perseverance”, “Dedication” and “Resilience” carved into pieces of road asphalt, burned into wood and what not, sticking to the visual “poetics of the street”, and the raw, unpolished materials. .

Wonderful full page review of my “Mare Nostrvm” solo @iaahillyer on this week’s @washingtoncitypaper by @erindevine.performanceartist .
OPEN till October 28!
My fave quotes/highlights: “both menacing and beautiful” + “Limauro is also indebted to ancient Roman mosaics; even in his purely acrylic work, there is a glittering flatness compounded by the minuteness of brushstrokes and complex values, recalling carefully placed tesserae” + “Limauro’s work is well researched and necessarily emphatic, an urgent consideration of the Mediterranean as our modern mass grave” .
