SpY’s work involves creating dialogue in public space – transforming or replicating urban elements in order to interfere in their communicative codes. The bulk of his production comes from observing the city and its component parts - not as inert elements but as a palette of materials overflowing with possibilities. Careful attention to the context of each piece and a con-structive, rather than invasive approach, characterizes his work.
Working exclusively in the public space, SpY’s interventions act as a parenthesis to the inertia of the urban environment. For this reason, he privileges chance encounters between spectators and his artwork over exhibiting in galleries.
Describing his work as a conversation between artist and environment, the passer-by and the piece, SpY aims to incite reflection and, ultimately, the creative development of the urban environment.
