P19, 2019, enamels on drywall, 243×417 cm
Retracing the Milanese tradition of collaboration between architects and artists for decoration of entrance halls of buildings, the edifice P19 designed by Carlo Donati Studio has become a source of inspiration to connect architecture and painting.
The broken lines and the chromatics of the two buildings of Via Palermo 19 in Milan have been translated into a pure composition of forms and colors through a process of abstraction.
