Illustre Feccia

Painted on Saturday on Katharine Street by Italian artist Illustre Feccia (Illustrious Scum) whose signature is Black & White surrealism and inspired by the Avant Garde, Romantics & Post Punk cultures (according to his bio found here).

I love using black and white with a base colour underneath.

The mural based on sketches and the theme Life and Death (this theme features throughout his work) is a Gothic illustration, hauntingly beautiful and striking. It is a first class example of the artist’s aesthetic and beliefs and on closer inspection the theme is seamingly more complex and open to interpretation perhaps even reincarnation with the tree a symbol of life growing through the skull and connecting with the surrealist head on the left.

I try to create an atmosphere where I make a contrast between the past (with a particular emphasis on historical events such as industrial revolutions) and current life in addition to sketching in some metamorphic subjects.
