Belgium based street artist Bisser recently travelled to Northern Italy and left some of his playful characters on the Italian streets. The streets certainly kept him busy as he painted five walls during his visit, with the help of Urban Lives.
His first mural ‘Smart drowning’ was in Reggio Emilia, in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy. Here he painted, with spray cans and paint, one of his characters drowning in his smartphone, criticising the increasing time spent on smart phones and how over consumption is degrading the users life.
Bisser’s second mural was in Bologna, the largest city of the Emilia-Romagna region. Bisser painted on the squat Làbas with spray paint and paint. His characters are leaving through the abandoned premises and finding themselves homes, as Bisser paints roofs for their heads.
“It was fantastic! Had a really great time! Made a lot of murals. Had interesting experiences. Learned new technical things. Met a lot of friendly people and most importantly I made some new friends!” Bisser
The next wall is also on Làbas squat and it’s a collaboration with Andrea Casciu and SKIRL. They used paint only.
Bisser then moves to Via del Pratello Bologna and paints the shutter in the Italian sun with spray paint and paint.
The last wall in Italy see’s Bisser painting inside the Làbas squat and is called ‘Italian Demon’ painted with spray paint and normal paint.
