2021 Direzione 30x30cm carta

Monday 19th July 2021 – Direction

The journey continues, this time inside the city. The absolute protagonist of this artwork on paper is the line. I started from the structure of the Milan ring road: the cables from the top go towards the curve, and always in that direction there is the strip of white road signs, which leads the eye in the same direction.
