A 3D street art piece created as part of a major European street art festival in Antwerp. The concept being the completion and fading degrees of same at all levels throughout the design. The piece starts out as a puzzle and fades into a scene of the 'live' scene of sunflowers across a field.
Purposely, Cappetto completed different aspects of the art with varying degrees of completion like the puzzle ranging from full execution such as the seed centers to the fading of detail across the sunflowers, graphics style interpretation of the dragon flies.
Usage of the puzzle pieces whether be left out of reality on the back panel falling to the integrated ground panel and anamorphically accessible as Cappetto 'lifts' a painted puzzle piece to go back into the art itself.
'Betta Fish Kite': Crewe, England, United Kingdom
Designed to allow for interaction with the street art and the general public - people 'flew' the kite over a scene to the Crewe countryside opened to below through the pavement plane.
'Freedom': Baltimore, Maryland, USA
In the spirit of moral statements buried in the guise of still life’s in Europe in the 17th-18th centuries, we have designed this piece to make a statement on our current administration.
From a base drawn in the interior samples from Trump Tower NYC Lobby, that is tacky brass, black marble, a bust of what I call the thoughtful (moral) person hovers. The bust is wrapped in 18k gold barbed wire, the left side of the bust has red, white, blue streams following the edge symbolizing America.
The Freedom is expressed with bright butterflies escaping the barbed wire – free expression, the strength of the Constitution and American Principles victorious: free. Breaking free of oppressive thought and behavior this current administration is trying to impose upon the American People.
Street Art: Battery Park (New York City)
A simple yet effective opportunity to bring nature into the concrete of New York City via my street art.
Using Sunflowers, grasses, and colorful dragonflies with the rough concrete wall bringing a hazy summer day to life in Battery Park.
