With his ironic and provocative collages, Beast deconstructs well-known faces of politics and the world of entertainment, recreating scenarios to the limit of veracity, visual traps that can make us smile and reflect at the same time. His distinguished mash-ups, framed in gold and freely placed on the streets, have quickly attracted the attention of media, challenging the urban audience to question the truthfulness of the information, in a continuous play of references between the real world and the ideal world proposed by the artist. Beast brings new life to famous and other forgotten images in the photographic repertoire of our history, extending the horizons of street art in the folds between the political commentary and a sheer form of art. His true obsession for the icons of our time explores a variety of strategies to define the complexity of the political world, his “open-air galleries” promote an idea of democratic art, forcing the boundaries between the overwhelming vandalism and the urgency of the artistic expression. Beast transforms our streets into his own personal museum, a sincere homage offered to the city and its inhabitants through silent night-time interventions, returning to the early morning lights a humanized version of the indigenous reality.
