Taking the pee with Millo

Millo is an artist from Italy who has recently paid a visit to London and held an exhibition of his work in the Hoxton Gallery.
Located in the surrounding area were other examples of his work including these three pieces.

First up to see was this piece sat proudly between two premises for all passers-by to clearly see – with a character ‘pissing like a dog’
Millo predominently creates his work in black and white and is very effective – using the colour of the surrounding landscape to add colour and atmosphere.

Throughout his work, Millo explores visions and dreams; the power of the ‘normal’ individual and how the order of arrangement of each life experience is ‘disturbed’. This is taken straight from his own life as a man with Asperger’s, symbolised through his drawings of ‘a lonely man moving around the world’.

Next located on a Royal Mail post box in the heart of London was this piece. Strategically positioned so that the character sports an ‘ER’ tshirt!
I didn’t find any other text accompanying this piece though.

And in response to the post box is another piece featuring the same character offering to take someone’s mail as he ‘loves yr post box’!
All rather surreal but totally intriguing, interesting and a great addition to the area.
