Verbo’s Site-Specific Street Art Interacts with Industrial Structures

Though large-scale public murals are in his oeuvre, Verbo's approach to street art can be private and quiet. The Italian artist seeks out abandoned buildings and factories, leaving murals that await discovery. These site-specific works are there for explorers and seekers who wander into these decrepit buildings. While Verbo's style is reminiscent of Wild Style graffiti, it goes beyond the confines of letter forms, deconstructing and rebuilding them into an intricate geometry. His works beautifully interact with the broken-down settings and industrial rubble that surrounds them. Take a look at more of Verbo's work after the jump.
