Urban Art Lugano

"The term urban means from the city which is derived from the Latin word urbanus. It is associated with art that is created by artist living, depicting, or experiencing city life."

Ever felt like painting those boring gray walls or those dreary looking tunnels? Well, Lugano has given an artist permission to do so and is actually inviting the public to participate by watching him.

Urban Art Lugano is pleased to present the work of Italian artist Agostino Iacurci. Urban Art Lugano strives to unite the synergies between public and private partnerships to foster artistic interventions in urban spaces. In this spirit AUL opens another collaboration with a private citizen and has kindly provided a wall of their building in via Lavizzari 5 in Lugano.

It is on this great wall from Monday, April 2nd to Sunday, April 8th, 2012 that you will be able to see Augustine Iacurci in action.

Everyone in invited to walk through the Via Lavizzari and let themselves be surprised by the artist's work and to admiring his creation which will remain visible for at least 2 years.

Urban Art Lugano is also in the process of deciding on a project for the ugly Besso tunnel which should be completed by the end of June. Inauguration is planned during the Longlake Festival 2012.
