Argentinian-Spanish artist Felipe Pantone completed his recent work on Faria Lima avenue in São Paulo, Brazil. Entitled “300,000 Km/s” the mural is 35m high x 9m wide which took 10 days to finish. It is the first large scale mural Felipe hand paint after the pandemic, being the last one in Buffalo, NY in May 2019.
” A friend of mine told me that it feels like a splash of light for the city; that’s exactly how I see it” the artist mentioned.
Felipe Pantone evokes a spirit in his work that feels like a collision between an analog past and a digitized future, where human beings and machines will inevitably glitch alongside one another in a prism of neon gradients, geometric shapes, optical patterns, and jagged grids.
Based in Spain, Pantone is a byproduct of the technological age when kids unlocked life’s mysteries through the Internet. As a result of this prolonged screen time, he explores how the displacement of the light spectrum impacts color and repetition.
