  • About the work

Milan 2014: artwork by the contemporary artist Alessandro Russo, which represents a view of Milan Porta Nuova district. Against a white and muffled background the iper-modern buildings of the Milanese skyline stands out. In a dedalus of electric cables, streets and palaces we can distinguish a tram and a green pole. In the street cars speed rapid. In thise work some purple brushes make the atmosphere more bright and juice up the gloomy ambient.

The work is signed on the bottom right and marked P.U. (Unique piece) on bottom left.
