Vincenzo Esperti, born in 1983, is completely surrended by art from his childhood. When he attended Elementary School, the teacher thought he was a potential poetry writer, but he wrote that just to draw the illustration at the bottom of the page.
At the age of 12, he discovered Graffiti, due to the strong tradition of his hometown, and still nowdays he’s involved in this imaginative world of letters and colours.
This strong passion for letters led him to Graphic Design, a subject where type and image melt down to create an impressive communication tool to advertise or to inform about something.
The next evolution of this “being” will surely be calligraphy, a subject with very deep roots in the past, that is gaining a new popularity all over the world also in institutional advertisement campaigns.
The second, only one step lower, great passion is music.
Since the age of 20 he’s one of the most acclaimed deejay in his town, and he is often invited around the nation to perform his “black music selection” shows as dj and vocalist at the same time.
The strong know-how both in Graphic Design and Music, made him the pretty “monopolistic” poster designer of almost every concert or musical event in his hometown, making him collaborating as a freelance with the biggest clubs and discos of the area.
Soon he built his personal style, taking inspiration from his favourite movements and artists, such as Russian constructivism (El Lissitzky, Mayakovsky), all the regime propaganda iconography (Soviet communism, German Nazism, North Korean Juche), the “Italian style” of Bruno Munari’s designs and didactics, the calligraphy rebirth brought in Italy by Luca Barcellona, the street-art of Mike Giant (creator of the world-famous brand Obey), the abstract paintings of Georges Mathieu or Gutai group (for their perfect melt down between sign and abstract shapes), the traditional prints of engravers like GiovanBattista Piranesi, Albrecht Dürer, Pablo Picasso or M.C. Escher, and the Italian police-movie posters illustrators of the 70’s decade.
