Tag: 2501

While many street artists are known for signature tags or characters, Italian artist 2501's work is instantly recognizable for an iconic pattern — an organic, zebra-like evolution of stripes that morph into various geometric forms, whether across massive walls or canvases. The cryptic artist never signs his work and his name implies a desire for a certain level of anonymity (it's nearly impossible to find anything about him online if searching for the numerical digits alone). After a lengthy mural-painting tour across the world that took him from Australia to Mongolia to Canada, 2501 will touch down in LA for his solo show "Nomadic Experiments: Anatomy of Restlessness," opening June 27 at Soze Gallery.
