Eron is one of the most well-known figures in Italian graffiti art of the 20th and 21st centuries and was defined by Treccani Encyclopedia as one of the most gifted and accomplished protagonists of the international urban art and contemporary art scene.
A visual journey addressing various social issues, from human rights to migration flows, interchanging or fusing different figurative languages, inviting the viewers to not just look at the works, but to actually see them. Looking and seeing are often considered synonyms, but they refer to very different actions. As the poet and philosopher Henry David Thoreau said: “It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.” This philosophical concept inspired the title of Eron’s show: “Close your eyes and see”. If people went beyond looking and actually saw, the world would probably be a better place.
In 2018, Eron created what is considered to be one of the largest art murals in the world. This piece, titled W.A.L.L. (Walls Are Love’s Limits), is located in a new neighborhood of Milan called CityLife. A 1,000 square meter painting that transformed this wall into a monument against walls.In 2010, Eron created the first and only spray paint piece inside a place of worship, “frescoing” the ceiling of the church of San Martino in Riparotta in Rimini.In 2016, for the Treccani Institute of the Italian Encyclopedia in Rome, he painted a piece dedicated to migrants on the side of a boat carcass titled “Soul of the Sea”, which depicted faces of women and children who take shape from the rust of the boat itself. Pictures of this piece went viral and both The Economist and The Chicago Tribune published it as the picture of the day.In 2019, the city of Rimini awarded him the “Sigismondo d’Oro”, the highest civilian award. Eron did not show up to accept the award, but he sent Mamadu Mbacke Dieng instead, an African immigrant and peddler who has lived in Rimini for years.
