Federico Carta aka Crisa | Nikaia, Athens
Federico Carta aka Crisa has been inspired by dumping grounds and abandoned cities where nature awaked and took back the space. He has just completed the mural in which a set of pipes, ropes, geometries and spheres are mixed with natural elements, suggesting an urban forest. This mixture of elements creates its own harmony and balance between the forms despite the chaos.
The blue color is inspired by the Greek flag while yellow is the upmost color of the neighborhood.
Federico Carta aka Crisa was born in Cagliari, Sardinia in 1984. Self taught, he has experimented since he was a child, and in 1996 he began to paint graffiti on walls while also painting on various recycled materials and canvas.
As the time goes by, he continues his research in the city, on the roads. His themes are related to nature but also to the metropolis.
Experimenting with techniques and materials, he developed a personal style of research, in which his paintings deal with degradation and environmental themes often in a metropolitan setting utilising the different symbols of his poetic imagination; antennas, washing machines, plants and buildings, wastelands etc.
