Happy New Year with Agostino Lacurci

January 5, 2016

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 !

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.

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.

      Hi Cindy, so kind of you to say so. Hope you had a gloriously retro Christmas and a busy selling year ahead too. Might we anticipate any guest posts this year do you think ? We live in hope : )
