Agostino Iacurci Collaborates with Atlanta Youth on New Mural

by CaroPosted on

Italian street artist Agostino Iacurci recently teamed up with All City Canvas to support the children of Camp Best Friends summer program in Atlanta. In a workshop hosted by Iacurci, the children created imaginary portraits that were later put together to compose a large 150ft mural in the Ben Hill neighborhood. Titled “Wallter”, their collective piece took the artist almost nine days to complete. “I started from a grid composing a pattern of people, and I tried to fill it with informations and inspirations from the portraits the kids painted. I took many of the colors from the palettes they created while painting with primary colors and some of the most recurrent elements, like the eyes placed in random positions in the artworks,” he shares. Instantly recognized for his colorful, geometric character portraits (covered here), Iacurci considers the mural as part of a series he has been working on in recent months. It employs basic patterns and stripes, combined with human and natural elements which the artist uses to create a story. If you are in Atlanta and would like to visit Iacurci’s collaborative mural, it is located at 3721-B Campbellton Road, Atlanta, GA 30331.
