INO was recently back to Ibiza for the 7th edition of the local Bloop festival. After his Funk the Power piece from last year got buffed by the city council of San Antoni, Greek artist came back to create another piece @ the festival’s new location.
Melting Earth is the title of a new piece that carries a pretty straight forward message about the environmental issue of global warming. With the recent US political climate shifting towards ignoring the warnings of experts, Ino decided to send out an obvious message with his striking work. Painting on a hot Mediterranean island, he produced a freehand image of a hand holding an ice cream cone, with melting planet Earth instead of a scoop. By slicing the image and adding a vibrant blue stroke around it, the artist accented the tension of the image and uncertainty of his simple yet powerful motif.
