Looking like profiles of a futuristic street gang, these illustrations by Italian artist Emanuele Ronco AKA Rems 182 are visually alluring with a futuristic appeal.
Emanuele Ronco's illustrations experiment with the tradition of graffiti artwork by portraying well known graffiti artists. The way in which Ronco creates his murals recalls the aesthetics of cyberpunk culture. Often times, cyberpunk literature will be grounded in a seedy world of shady back alley deals and futuristic technology. The juxtaposition between street culture and technological advancements is an appropriate reference point for artists whose work is embedded within a culture that balances between public display and secluded socialization.
Looking like characters from a noir-inspired Sci-Fi film, Emanuele Ronco's cast of vibrant personalities exude emotion and personality through a blend of impressive visual expression and animated composition.
