TellasSeptember 2011


Stavanger, Norway

Inspired by the natural world around him and maintaining a unique balance between heavily detailed work and minimalism, Italian artist Tellas has a penchant for simple repeating shapes. With a muted palette and poetic aesthetic, Tellas was one of the earliest street artists to develop a more modernist visual in the scene, with his use of interlinking geometric shapes and quieter abstract illustrations.

In later work developed after this piece for Nuart in 2011, Tellas experimented with manipulating gradients and organic pattern work, carving himself out a distinct place in the urban art scene. An early sign of this impending development can be seen here, with his persistent yet gentle, naturally tessellating school of fish.
