Artist of the Day: Wanmhope
The works made by the Italian artist Wanmhope radiate flights of fantasy and imagination that are full of hidden meanings and expressions of contemporary culture. They are sometimes pushy, sometimes modest, sometimes elegant and sometimes rough. But, above all, the creations of Wanmhope are all beautifully composed and accomplished.
