as a graffiti artist, biancoshock spends a lot of time on a scaffolding, painting his urban surroundings from unreachable heights. during the memorie urbane street art festival in gaeta, the italian artist has reinterpreted this tool to become an art piece in itself, turning the structural framework into a personal living space.

 

each level of ’24/7′ mimics a domestic interior: level one serves as a storage space for paint tools and equipment, just like the garage of a home; the second floor becomes a painting studio, with pink patterned wallpaper lining the surrounding walls; the third has been transformed into a kitchen, with two chairs set up around a small dining surface; the fourth level is a fully-outfitted bedroom, with a single sleeper and even a small TV fitting comfortable in the space; the ‘penthouse’ is conceived as a rooftop terrace for relaxation and sunbathing, with a lounge chair and a bucket of beer placed under a beach umbrella.
