Investigating as we usually do to surprise you, and so we can gather in this web page the largest number of works and tapeartists in the world, we have come across them; with Motorefisico. And we were not just surprised by their name but also their simple way of creating beauty with a geometry that traps you through tape art.
And they got here, as the saying goes, almost by chance. A couple of years ago they made an experiment for the restoration of an abandoned urban area, this place had cement flats and could not paint on it because that would have been illegal. Then decided to use tape in case someone showed up, would see that the work was a temporary installation. The experiment worked well and now the old abandoned place is very popular, and the tape is still there. Unbelievable!
The most notable of Motorefisico, for us, is that their drawings come from the concept of composition of forms. They tell us that they had no model to follow when they began, but over time they realized that we were part of a larger movement related to the design, which is called basic design. They have told us that the basic design is used by the schools of art and design to teach students how to compose simple elements such as lines and geometric shapes. The Motorefisico project has a great affinity with this topic, and therefore gave a conference on basic design in a university in Rome. Way to go boys!
With a coldly calculated and compositive style (this is how they define themselves) Lorenzo confesses that for Motorefisico tape art is a very efficient way to interact with surfaces, as it offers the possibility of drawing at an intense speed and cover very large walls and floors. It can be easily removed and repaired and it is very useful for geometric drawing styles.
They are still exploring and have many dreams and ambitions. One of them is to create a great work with adhesive tape on the inside of a famous museum in Rome. They are closely linked to their city and when they dream with an important facility, obviously they imagine it there.
