On the occasion of his personal exhibition at Wunderkammern gallery in Milan, opening on May 16th, we had the chance to spend a couple of days and nights with 2501 in his city, Milan. The result is a short documentary unveiling something more about the artist: the life changing experience in Brazil, the evolution of his style, the upcoming projects, his relationship with the city of Milan and especially with his neighborhood Bovisa.
«Basically, there’s only one inspiration for my work, and that’s the city. I mean my work is on the city, and that’s the focus point for everything, where everything comes from.»
A street reportage of one of the most eclectic but at the same time recognizable talents of today’s art scene.
