Italian artist Emanuele Ronco (better known as Rems 182) of Truly Design produces graffiti works that blur the line between reality and surrealism. His latest creations include portraits that present multiple perspectives of a person’s face and hands that tend to blend into one another. There’s a softness to each image that allows the various expressions to complement each other while revealing the complexities of human emotion.
Rems 182’s murals are highly symbolic. They offer thought-provoking visuals that push the viewer to wonder which face is any given person’s real one. Is it just one of them or are they all real? The artist also includes images of skulls in his collection, symbolizing both death and rebirth.
A selection of Rems 182’s new work is currently on display in an exhibit titled Exquisite Spray at Loppis Gallery in Parma through February 14, 2014.
