Farnesina Collection welcomes “80”, a work by Teo Pirisi, better known as Moneyless, an abstract graffiti artist, illustrator, and designer.
The work, displayed in the graphic design gallery of the Farnesina Collection, is directly made on the slate of an old school blackboard that the artist salvaged from being discarded. “What I love of this support is the imperfections and the signs of time, the traces of all the students who experienced joy and sorrow at their school desks,” writes the artist, and it is also the space in which he first experienced his passion for drawing.
In his search for abstract geometric shapes, Moneyless explores the structure of natural elements, disassembling and reassembling the shape of things by rotating and superimposing them, driven by a constant tridimensional energy.
