Illustrator/Spray Artist, Marco Réa, Redefines Parameters of Street Art, Chris Milo for Hunger
Posted Jun 26, 2019
Marco Réa captures a unique blend of beauty/street in ‘Mask‘ by Chris Milo for Hunger Magazine. He applies his scattered artwork on copied photographs. Making the end result appear as if some of the paint is splattered over Nana Abramova’s fine face, while the rest is met with a pane of glass. These captures are compelling. Just when you think you know what it is you are gazing at, you find yourself questioning the very nature of reality. Pop-Surrealism makes it’s mark in exquisite works of modern art. Producing what they are calling a, ‘hypnotic distortion of reality’. The idea of images being shot separately from the artist’s application, is itself remarkable. Réa Seizes Art of Street on the Face of Très Chic. “The photos were taken by Chris in the studio with a digital camera [and] afterwards they were printed and I worked on them exclusively with spray cans. The result is a hypnotic distortion of reality, a colourful tattooing of energy that is artful and melancholic.” Firstly, many of the shots appear as if paint has been applied directly to the face. Others look as if Nana is standing behind panes of glass, as her skin marked with a mosaic of colors. And finally, there are those images that blend the two seamlessly. The multi dimensional aspect of this project lends itself to the innovative idea of abstract essence. By combining conceptual elements, Marco redefines the parameters of Street Art.
