Bling-Bling Graffiti by Felipe Pantone

Of course there is a lot of eye candy here. Felipe Pantone consistently uses shiny white and neon paints in his murals that look influenced from Op Art. His graffiti makes me reminisce the 1980s with bright colored typography, Synthpop music, SMPTE color bars on the TV… but there are also elements (like a Chat icon) that makes me think he’s connecting to present time and the future of digital technology. The Internet, a social information wonderland and hell. And what are the effects of globalization? There is definitely a message embedded into the 3D shapes and letters that he sprays onto the walls.
