Giulio Vesprini (°1980, Civitanova Marche, Italy) is an artist and graphic designer who works in a variety of media. He has attended two major schools: Accademy of Fine Arts in Macerata and the Departement of Architecture in Ascoli Piceno.
With a subtle minimalistic approach, Vesprini focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on spaces where graphic and wall can be united at any given moment: the non-private space and space that is economically uninteresting can become utility space. His artworks are often about contact with architecture and graphic elements.
By applying abstraction, he creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.
His practice provides some graphic tools with a minimalist approach in the world of art: these meticulously planned works resound and resonate with images culled from the fantastical realm of imagination.
In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, he creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found.
His work doesn’t reference at recognisable form but Vesprini focuses the results in one word, the word that he love: “Archigraphia” where he deconstructed this concept to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. He has obtained various awards and publications related to his graphic design, wall paint and illustration work.

First, all my studies, two major schools the Accademy of Fine Arts and the Departement of Architecture in Italy, then two beautiful urban art projects, WOW in Terni, Italy and PG-70 in Fermo, Italy.

New York and Berlin
What are your current goals and future plans?
I hope to finish my project “VEDO A COLORI Streer Art in Civitanova Marche,Italy” where I’m recovering the port area with street art, thanks to the many artists who come here for me. Then in 2017 an important exhibition in Europe.
What is the most difficult part about being an artist?
The research and study.
What are you trying to communicate with your art?
I define myself as an archigraphic. Archigraphia combines my two fields of study, architecture and graphic design and fully represents what I am and what I would
like to be in the future, continously growing with new communicative languages. Painting a wall is a graphic sign that can back to speak an architectural form that
no longer communicates, often without dynamic impulses.
Why did you decide to become an artist?
I haven’t decided. You don’t choose to become an artist. Being an artist is a lifestyle that you have inside.
If you were an animal, what animal would you be?
White Crane (Bird)
What is one thing people would be surprise to know about you?
I’m a father of a beautiful baby girl… very nice but very hard :)

The graphics and architecture, nature and landscape all the great masters of the land art and muralism.
