Phoshor Art's Flavio Melchiorre is an Italian artist who is also known as IDRO51. His distinct style (known as hypnotic art) is heavily inspired by street art, something he’s been interested in for many years. Flavio actually began his career as a graffiti writer back in the early 90s. Since then he’s worked mainly in the fields of advertising and fashion, lending his distinctly colourful and psychedelic style to campaigns across the world.
Flavio Melchiorre (A.K.A IDRO51) has transformed another wall with his iconic ‘hypnotic art’. The wall in Lentella, Italy measures a whopping 6x2.5 metres and was created as part of the NatureArte Festival which celebrates outdoor painting and sculptures.
Flavio’s work, named ‘Listen Your Nature’ has since been noticed by many street art websites, including Global Street Art.
Andy Council has recently completed this magnificent mural of a horse in the Bedminster area of Bristol. It was commissioned as part of the Government’s ‘Portas Pilots’ – an initiative to get TV retail guru Mary Portas to help revitalise town centres. Bedminster’s bid, put together by local traders, community leaders and councillors, had the vision of turning the south Bristol suburb into a renowned ‘village’ centre for street art and street theatre, complete with a bicycle rickshaw service. Andy's large mural took several days of work to complete with the help of the Upfest team, the use of a scissor lift and dozens of cans of spray paint. The horse was chosen to reflect the area's mining past and it is purely coincidental that current news stories involve horses! Photograph by Paul Green Photography.
