Marco Grassi

by Tuesday, May 14, 2013

 

The Italian artist Marco Grassi aka Pho set himself on the street art scene during the early nineties, in which he became one of the most progressive representatives. Grassi translates his background as a graffiti bomber to his vast abstract paintings by referring to graffiti writing’s traditional elements: the word, the rhythm of the line and a performing dynamism. His work is also influenced by Professor Luciano Fabro, whose class he attended at the Brera‘s Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. In the style of the Arte Povera, Grassi’s works reflect the materiality of urban environment: old wooden pallets; weathered posters; rusted metal; and bitumen.
