The Italian artist Biancoshock, who is worldwide known for his public art works that stand out for their originality, emotional impact and visual disturbance. A collection of works created between 2004 and 2019, synthesizing more than 15 years of research and over a thousand urban installations.
Dipòlo presents the two strands that mark the artist's path: White and Shock. The most difficult works to interpret, which need reflection and specific references, with conceptual shades, belong to the White category. A non-color, but also the one that contains them all, white represents a neutral component, to be shaped, which introduces the second dimension, the Shock: astonishment and immediacy. To this strand belong immediate works in the interpretation by the heterogeneous public that the street guarantees, works whose genesis is dictated by a thorough knowledge of the urban environment and the ability to reinterpret every single detail of its infrastructure, its furniture, its codes.
