What could be a more appropriate way to follow posts like this and this than the image above from Fra.Biancoshock‘s “Heroes Never Die” series of street art (ish) interventions?
Explains the elusive Italian:
Biancoshock is a concept far from being an artist. And further still, from being a street artist. My “experiences” are not showcases to promote my activities, they do not require any description and they are NOT artworks: they are simply opportunities to communicate and provoke reactions from common people. I’m talking about all those who, although with little or any artistic education, still want to be surprised and moved by something that was left on the street for all to see.
I am a BIG FAN of opportunities to communicate and provoke reactions.
I also really dig how Biancoshock plays with the “language” of graffiti and street art. “Toy” refers to action figure, but also amateur, for instance. And I’m a sucker for anything Smurfy. Check out more here.
