For a very long time, Biancoshock didn’t consider himself an artist, until, one day he decided to understand the purpose and nature of his work. It soon became clear that there is no existing “category” that can fit his urban inclination, typical of Urban Art, and his expressive process, which is very close to classic activist and performative art; this is the reason why he decided to give birth to Ephemeralism. Ephemeralism has the purpose of producing works of art that have to exist briefly in space, but limitlessly in time through photography, video and media. He has realized more that 700 interventions in the streets of Italy, Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, England, Hungary, Lithuania, Malaysia, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia and Spain and he is not thinking about stopping. He has participated in some of the most important Urban Art festivals, and presented his “Ephemeralism” project in various universities (including Milan, Foggia, Ljubljana, Bratislava and Zagreb), and at TEDx Oporto 2014.
In this Art of the Street episode Magic City curator Carlo McCormick explains shortly the idea behind the installation of Biancoshock from Italy.
