Happy New Year with Agostino Lacurci
Welcome to Fishinkblog and 2016. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all.. and so how was your Christmas and New Year ? All good I hope with the chance for that much needed down-time and opportunity to reflect and recharge the internal batteries too : )
I turned a half century over the festive period and had the welcome opportunity to meet up with 24 of my best friends and celebrate it with a meal in Manchester… what a treat !
I even received a home-made cake and some lovely presents. Thank you everyone for your generosity and friendship, it meant so much.

Agostino Lacurci is a very talented graffiti illustrator. Born in Foggia in 1986, Agostino has been creating since 2008 and designing stories on buildings and important public spaces, working in unison with their inhabitants.
I love his stylish swirls and curves.
Many residents have welcomed his artwork and say that it’s made their neighbourhood a friendlier place since the murals arrived !
This swimmer is a fab addition to what was previously a rather drab building.
If you’re wondering how he copes with the scale of everything… look at this ! Boy do you need a head for heights, err and a sun umbrella !
He also creates paintings and 3-D sculptures.
This is a ‘now you see him, now you don’t’ man and tree sculpture. How clever.
I really enjoyed finding out more about Agostino’s work and ideas, I hope you did too. There’s a great Q&A article over on the Lancia Trend Visions site if you want to know a little more.
Happy 2016 everyone don’t forget to vote now for Fishink Blog. Thank you.
