Italian artist Tellas has just completed a new project in Argentiera, Sardinia, Italy. Entitled “FronteMare” this piece is a collaboration between Tellas, Puerto Rican artist 2Bleene and the architects from Landworks, who transformed a huge parking lot to a new area that works as a plaza and basket/pickleball.
“FronteMare – Tellas says – wants to be like a mirror, a reflection of what is around the work itself. The nuances and gradations of the sea and vegetation, the mistral that blows fresh and strong, and the mining architecture, are the main three elements that give life to a composition that plays and interacts with the landscape”.
Tellas has made an indelible mark on the street art world with his unique style and profound connection to nature.
Growing up in a place (Sardinia, Italy) that is steeped in history and surrounded by lush landscapes, it’s no wonder that nature plays a central role in Tellas’s work. With a unique approach to nature-inspired art and an ability to seamlessly blend his work with the urban environment, Tellas’s art is characterized by its fluid and organic forms, often resembling the shapes and patterns found in nature. His work often features abstract representations of forests, trees, and plant life, and he is known for his use of earthy tones and natural materials. His style evokes a sense of tranquility and harmony, inviting viewers to connect with the natural world.
One of the most remarkable aspects of Tellas’s work is his ability to adapt and integrate his art into the urban environment. He doesn’t impose his art on the city; instead, he collaborates with it. He carefully selects locations and surfaces that complement his style and make his pieces feel like they belong there, whether it’s on a decaying wall, a forgotten alleyway, or a crumbling building.
2Bleene was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She describes her work as an expressive contemporary abstraction between her encounters with flowers/nature and her years of work as a graphic designer. Her process begins with documenting floral elements in her island and travels to then transform them into long lasting memories, color palettes and textures.
