Recently EPFL, the Polytechnic Federal School of Lausanne invited us to participate in the “Art on Science” public exhibition, focused on optical illusions. A great opportunity for a reflection on science and human ambition.
This is our tribute to Vanitas, a widely depicted theme in the history of arts. Alongside symbols of worldly ambition, scientific accomplishments, and vanity, we find allegories of the frail and transient nature of our existence.
Far from being a morbid or bleak rebuke, it is an invitation to treasure in humbleness every instant of our precious lives.
A very big thank you goes to EPFL and Mediacom, which curated and supported the project.
Truly ’s artwork arises from the encounter between its four founders, who meet in the late 90’s amid train yards, abandoned factories and suburbs, experimenting at first with graffiti.
A passion and a commitment which culminate in a common street art project started in 2003.
The four artists ’ combined attitudes shape an artistic project which leads them to stand out amid
the international urban art panorama: the use of perspective and anamorphic painting, which generates visionary 3D images, outstanding optical illusions which merge with the surrounding architecture.
