felipe pantone embraces the technological process it takes to develop his designs, viewing it as part of a larger continuum of image-making innovations. he uses computer-modelling programs to allow him 3D insights into each project, which in this particular mural saw him layer tubular forms over a flat pictorial background.

he draws inspiration from kinetic artists like victor vasarely and carlos cruz-diez, using a similar moiré effect, in which lines give the impression of movement. the argentinian-spanish artist treats these, and other bold graphic design styles, as reconfigurable elements which can be used to create murals, sculptures, and paintings.

pantone worked with albright-knox gallery’s public art initiative for the work, entitled ‘optichromie – BUF’. the albright-knox’s public art initiative aims to enhance a shared sense of place and cultural identity in the urban and suburban landscapes of western new york. the goal of the initiative is to encourage communities to engage with and work together to produce public art.
