Giacomo Bufarini Run

RUN a.k.a. Giacomo Bufarini is an important proponent of a new renaissance of muralism within international street art. Originally from Italy, RUN’s love of travel has led him to make his home in London and create many large­scale murals around the world, most recently in China and across Africa. His recognisable style shows a level of detail and complexity rarely seen in street art today, evidenced through his vivid rendering of interlocking hands and faces in bright, arresting colours.

RUN is interested in street art as a language of communication, creating playful characters that speak to diverse audiences on multiple levels. The expansive scale of his works captivates the viewer, affecting a renaissance of muralism that reaches beyond the boundaries of street art.

This Berber Bag is being exhibited as part of this year's Marakesh Biennale and will be ready for shipping on the 20th of May 2016. We thank you for your understanding.
