Reminiscent of Picasso’s Guernica, Italian artist Riccardo Guasco’s Ninfa con jeans e minotauro (Nymph with jeans and Minotaur) cubistically distorts a beastly minotaur and a beautiful nymph, Detached limbs wrap from behind shapes, unsure of their owner. While Guernica portrays the violent bombing of Guernica with charred bodies scattered and contorted in black and white, Ninfa con jeans e minotauro celebrates beauty in full color.

Before the finished work, Ninfa con jeans e minotauro was a performance—which can be seen in the video above—as Guasco painted the 7 square meter canvas in front of the public as part of “The Art of Denim” event, an international campaign by McArthurGlen and PICAME.

Direction by FARGO & Riccardo Delfanti
