Colorful Abstract Street Art

Posted: 10/02/2013
Street art contrary to some people's belief is one of the most accessible art form. You need not buy tickets to view the artist's work or stand in line in some exhibition.

From murals to graffiti, this broad art form is one of the most recognized and appreciated by artists and art-lovers all over the world. Names like Dan Witz, OaKoAk, Stracy Lee Stum and Leon Keer are no-new for the E-junkie blog. Another artist adding to this list is the Italian artist Guido Bisagni, famously known as 108.

108 is known for his simple and abstract street art whose organic-like size makes them unique and stand out. He is one of the first artist to use number instead of his name and initially started working in traditional graffiti art but with time moved to painting large and mysterious figures that invade public spaces.

According to what 108 shared during a 2006 interview, "Usually I work in public spaces, you know, and the background is the most important thing. I must find a good shapes for that place, usually I prefer old walls and abandoned places, and my "thing" grow by it self, as a tree or moss did, but I know nature do that really better than me! It’s very hard for me to work on a blank white surface… in that situations I must find a good inspiration elsewhere, maybe in another work I did before or working with a good friend with good ideas."

108's work has appeared on the streets of Milan, Paris, London, Berlin, and New York City.
