Eron / Unknown


October 23, 2015

Eron is the pseudonym of a Roma-born contemporary artist who has developed a unique and original style that is particularly stunning. The work of one of the most well know exponents of Italian graffiti and street art often touch on social issues.

Eron’s art goes beyond pure representation of the subject. He is well-known for his series of pieces that shows ghostly figures who appear on the walls beneath exhaust vents like his piece from the series of works Soul of the Wall, located near Piazza del Popolo, in the Italian city of Arezzo, Tuscany. The artwork was painted on the site where a bomb destroyed a huge part of the Arezzo military complex during the Second World War.
