Italian artist Etnik just wrapped up a beautiful new piece of work on the streets of Battipaglia, a small town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy.

Painting for the Urban Area Street Art Festival, it took Etnik several days to create this artwork which is showing some of his signature geometric imagery.

Etnik is the alias of Italian-Swedish street artist Alessandro Battisti. Battisti developed his artistic talent living in Florence in the 80’s before he was attracted to the underground culture of graffiti art. While his studio is in Florence, his work takes him further abroad in Europe, and also to America, where he searches for the most innovative scenes. Ten years ago he began his current project, his “Prospective Cities” series, which defines the bulk of his work today. Each work imagines a different floating ‘3-D’ city, amidst a changing sea of shapes, colors, and perspective. The effect of geometric & architectural illustrations (on buildings) is admittedly a bit surreal, but we think the end product is quite fantastic, especially when it is underplayed.
