Millo / Francesco Camillo Giorgino

Urban Art

November 27, 2015

Millo is an Italian street artist, born Francesco Camillo Giorgino in 1979. He is known for his predominantly black and white large-scale murals. His artworks are characterized by child-like figures, simple monochromatic lines combined with a dash of color, and elements of architecture.

The architectural element in his works might be rooted in the fact that Millo was a student of architecture. He didn't plan to became an artist, he just liked to paint. However, art became his profession.
