This painting is based on a cityscape photo the artist took during his visit to my hometown of Rijeka, Croatia, and is titled after a song of a local 80s punk band. The title translates to "Blue Envelope" which is a metaphor for bribing and corruption, something that's been a symbol of the region as much as VW Golf produced in TAS factory in Sarajevo or big concrete working class ressidential buildings
"Il Suonatore Gino”
For @festiwall_rg , in Ragusa (Italy)
Grazie mille a tutta la gente di Ragusa, Magic Gino, Antonio, Vincenzo, and the rest of the crew. Eskerrik asko @alaintherock Paolo di Grandi. Also @maratdanilyan and @zoerism
E naturalmente Faber!
There is in soul a sympathy for sounds and sensibility and that’s why music and visual arts express that which cannot be put into other words and that which cannot remain silent. “It’s a universal language.” For this third edition of FestiWall, the Spanish artist made a homage to the vibrating sounds of Ragusa and its people. Well known for his breathtaking pieces, Sebas decided to portray the image of Giorgio “Gino” Nobile, the owner of Magic Music, which is the only vinyl record store in the Italian city.
They said there’s no such thing as casual fortuity, but causality took the artist, who was only looking for some Fabrizio de André music, to Gino’s store, who has dedicated his life to “let the others to listen” like the lyrics of “Il Suonatore Jones,” by the Italian musician. Sebas’ painted some of the records he found at the store as the background, surrounding Gino’s portrait as the sound maker, the music host with so many memories to share and not a single regret.

Spanish artists Sebas Velasco & Iñigo Sesma, recently took part in the refreshing Graffiti Na Gradele festival on the scenic island of Brac in Croaita. The two San Sebastian-based friends and studio mates painted a new collaborative piece titled Yugoslav riviera at the children park on the edge of the local harbor.
Though fine art painters rather than street artists, Velasco and Sesma enjoy working in the urban environment and translating their painterly approach on a bigger scale in public. Coming without any preparation or sketches, the two took a graffiti artist’s approach to creating the mural by collaging their imagery into a final piece. Taking inspiration from their trip trough Croatia and neighboring countries, the two put together a composition that includes typical residential building blocks, an old Yugo car, a portrait of a local festival goer, along with some elements from an old tourist catalog. Using similar visual language as well as technique, the duo nicely blended all these elements together, forming a somewhat of a postcard image from the festival.
