The dynamic shapes and bright colours that have always characterised Gummy Gue‘s work have invaded not one, but two basketball and volleyball courts in Buccinasco.
A few weeks ago Gummy Gue, the duo formed by Marco and Andrea Mangione, two Italian brothers and street artists, began working on two palygrounds in Buccinasco, a municipality southwest of Milan that falls within the city’s metropolitan area.
This is not the first time the two artists have worked on flooring or playgrounds, and they commented on Instagram: “Painting a playground offers the possibility to cross the field area, to move on the surface of composition to perceive the evolution of shapes in harmony with game’s dynamics. A variable vision that is continuously regenerated, as in a virtual simulation experienced in real space.”
One in Robarello Park and the other in Via Marsala, the two artistic interventions are part of a broader urban regeneration plan, called Piano Quartieri (Neighbourhood Plan), implemented by the municipality of Buccinasco.
Both courts have already been inaugurated with events involving the local basketball team, the Bionics Buccinasco, as well as the youth team of Olimpia Milano. The lines and shapes drawn by Gummy Gue seem to follow the movements of the players and the ball.
