Ino was recently invited by the Ministry of Culture of Belarus to create a mural for a project called “Urban Myths” in Minsk. During only 3 days Greek artist worked on this large new mural titled “Man With No Name”.
Painting in a country where death penalty is still in use, art can often have a deeper message which is exactly what Ino did with his piece. Using a familiar urban image of a hooded man, the artist put a burning candle instead of the face, cleverly adding an eternal feel to the piece. Using a grid for painting this large figurative work as part of his visual language, along wit a very limited color palette as usual, Ino certainly created a standout mural for the occasion. After having to leave the piece unfinished, he dedicated it to all those who were executed and after some time proved innocent.
