Italy based street artist Teo Pirisi, known as "Moneyless", is constantly seeking to evolve his already abstract style of work. For his last major solo exhibition (covered here), he sought inspiration in geometrical shapes and patterns. These, he feels, are the fundamentals of life that at their core represent a multitude of possibility.

Moneyless is an artist who, as he describes it, “speaks through geometry.” His education in mathematics is a clear influence on his new work, but this is a twist on forms he’s been observing for several years.
