Papercut Installation by UfoCinque
Matteo Capobianco, aka Ufo5, was born in Novara in 1981. Originally an active member of the Italian writing scene, he gradually began to embrace a more extensive definition of street art while completing his design studies at the Politecnico of Milan.
As a firm believer in the endless possibilities of the mural as a communication tool, Matteo began to experiment with different techniques beyond the restrictions that writing as a codified subculture was putting in place.
Central to Ufocinque’s vision is his layering tehcnique: each element blending traditional painting techniques with a project-oriented attitude in which multiple levels of interpretation are intertwined together. Form is never detached from function as they are sustaining each other to create an effortlessly beautiful world.
