Biography / Nemo’s

Italian artist Nemo's unique approach is his method of work that translates the transience of life to his murals by combining paint as a base and old newspapers as a cover that slowly erodes. His work is featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Nemo's murals show his characteristic human figures that slowly vanish from life by losing their "skin" due to his unique method of work. The base of each mural is painted skeletons. The next layer is affixed newspaper depicting the skin of his characters, eroding and peeling off over time and revealing the skeleton underneath. There is always a message involved, provoking thoughts about capitalism, mass media and critique towards our selfish society's modern values. Nemo's also creates installations and is working worldwide while he is based in Milan, Italy.
