Northern Italy Street Art

Got this mini documentary in my inbox today about graffiti artists in Northern Italy. It’s so interesting how graffiti has been morphing, changing and evolving in the last 10 years. I’m not even sure if the name street art or graffiti applies to this. Is it outdoor art, street art, graffiti, illegal brush painting? I’m confused!

Ryan Johnson

I came across some delightful sculptures from artist Ryan Johnson that got me pretty excited. I’m very interested by these playful characters, full of dignified humor despite an almost laughably pathetic appearance. These guys remind me a little bit of Ed Kienholz’s work too, which is never a bad thing. Look after the jump for the ones who’ve got their feet stuck in buckets filled with concrete. Hilarious!

Ambitous artist and force of nature, Mike Rea, never disappoints. Check out these life-size wood sculptures and be impressed.

Nolan Hendrickson

Crazy colorful work from NY based artist Nolan Hendrickson. These paintings posses a fantastical dreamlike quality and certainly feel bright and funny, but there is also something sinister that I can’t quite pinpoint. Then again, dreams end up being like that a lot of the time. I do love the idea of a woman with vibrant multi-colored hair, pink eyes, green hands, and blue skin… nothing sinister there, simply genius.
