'Madre', featuring WordToMother at the Fame Festival, Italy

I really enjoyed this video called Madre, which features British street artist WordToMother doing his thing around Italy. What I really like about WordToMother’s style is that technically, he’s painting a frame, letting the surface he’s working on shine through and be the focus. This negative effect is really effective, whether it be on the side of a building or a collection of scrap wood, as you can see above.

I think Andrew Telling did wonderful job of capturing the process that WordToMother went through. As with the Darren Booth post I wrote last night, Andrew has essentially shown us how it was all done, he revealed some of the secrets, and hopefully, will inspire someone out there to try and create beautiful art like WordToMother has done.

And for the curious, the music was done by Buddy Peace and & Lucasse, and you can DL the song for free of of their SoundCloud page by clicking here.
