Neo Glyphs

2008 —

We spent a couple of summers scratching the first draft of our alter ego Fupete's writing system on some walls around Italy and beyond. We held two solo exhibitions at the ROJO Artspace in Milan, "Head Empty", and at the GingerZone in Florence, "Zulu33". We were invited to the giant Scala Mercalli project curated by Gianluca Marziani at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome. David Quiles Guillò took us then to the Reina Sofia Contemporary Art Museum in Madrid for a bizarre night of live painting.
