‘Paradiso’ by AZZURRO

The world of AZZURRO is an imagination-drenched, hyperactive explosion of vibrant colours in utopian dreamscapes full of strange creatures and carnivorous plants. A mysterious artist wanders over land and sea, stitching walls together into grandiose portals to fantasy lands. The thin veneer between worlds is breaking- monsters from parallel universes converge upon an inter-dimensional paradise for a psychedelic daydream party that is sure to carry you very far…

About the artist

AZZURRO is a highly commissioned international designer and street artist from Adelaide, South Australia born in 1994. Since 2013, he has been responsible for countless public artworks and digital illustrations commissioned by local and state government, corporate and small business. AZZURRO artwork is known for being opulent, maximalist and futuristic. He uses fine-liners, acrylic brush, paint pen and aerosols to create immersive large scale street art and tiny worlds to explore. AZZURRO paints live for music festivals alongside his ‘ArtDome’, a giant climbable paintable geodome.

AZZURRO is passionate about marine ecosystems and has curated one group exhibition in Adelaide to-date, a 3-storey, 80-piece, 33-artist sized show in 2017 ‘It’s Getting Hot in Here’ exploring the environmental and socio-political-cultural effects of climate change on the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest through the eyes of emerging and established Adelaide-based artists. In May 2017 AZZURRO went worldwide with a commission by Clink Hostels to paint 35+ hostel rooms inside ClinkNoord, a revamped Dutch laboratory and at Clink78 in London, the King’s Cross courthouse where Charles Dickens wrote Oliver Twist. He returns to Amsterdam for his debut solo exhibition ‘Paradiso’.
