“48”, the geometric artwork by Nico Skolp in Rovigo

Giulia Guido

Bari-based street artist Nico Skolp has returned to work on asphalt with “48“, the pavement artwork he created in the new courtyard of Rovigo‘s “Urban Digital Center” on the occasion of the Rovigo Regeneration Festival 2021. 

The mural starts from the number used as the title: 48 is defined as a “semi-perfect” number, as it is equal to the sum of some or all of its divisors. This is why the work consists of 48 geometric shapes that create a multicoloured pattern.
The artwork covers the entire 300 square metres of the courtyard of the “Urban Digital Center”, making it also an immersive work, since it can be walked on and through to get from one part of the space to another. 

This is not the first time that Nico Skolp has worked on a horizontal surface; a few years ago he created a work on a basketball court in Matera, and last year he proved that he could also manage a staircase in Santa Croce di Magliano. Each time, however, his interventions manage to amaze both for their size and their visual impact.
