In an attempt to rejuvenate the small Italian community of Sant’elpidio a Mare in the wake of COVID-19, street artist Giulio Vesprini has developed the Super – Space project. What is it?
The project consists of a large painting on a playground space and it is Vesprini’s second work on a flat surface, the first one being Struttura g041.
Super – Space is a large urban trace that can be seen from the above, acting as a characterising landmark for the area in addition to being a meeting point between culture, sport and nature.
Shades of blue and red embrace each other, generating a harmonious balance between warm and cool tones. The combination of the intricate shapes and the vibrant colours provide an interesting visual effect, attracting locals to enter the playground.
Super – Space is not just a revitalised playground. It is a symbol for artistic creativity, freedom and expression, tracing new defined paths towards beauty and vitality.
In order to describe his state of mind and the intentions behind his work, Vesprini has borrowed Chinese philosopher Chang-Tzu’s words, “Happiness is the absence of striving for happiness”.
