    Visual Philosopher Riccardo Attanasio Matlakas performance painting at the Shoreditch Art Wall in London

     

     

    THIS VIDEO is of international artist/visual philosopher Riccardo Attanasio Matlakas painting the Shoreditch Art Wall in London. Anthropologist and social philosopher Carlo Angeli best described the event:

    “The paint is launched against the wall

    black on white…simple stark figures emerge across three surfaces

    the first, pain and pleasure entwined, death is stalking the frame.

    the second shows the cruel wriggling fruits of such union, unborn potentials swimming blindly into life

    the third is given to Ludos, the god of playing. Leafing through books and shooting paper planes on the breeze. innocent games betraying our savagery

    The fourth is a response to one who seeks romantic love. A blissful union of hopes and desires for those too tired to live alone. A fabled past, when people married and lived happily ever after.”
