With his very figurative and close to the illustration, Agostino Iacurci chose to create a triptych fresco on three walls of student residences on the Besançon university campus. Three walls for three characters and three generations.
At first glance, these three characters look very similar, all in profile, with the same chromatic ranges. But on closer inspection, they are quite different.
The first smokes a pipe. A strange smoke comes out of it, bubbles go to the sky, some of them enclosing small fish. The second holds a long view in his hands. The third breathes in bubbles, birds flying around him: the 3 terrestrial levels (water, earth, sky) and the 3 generations (youth, adulthood, old age) are represented in this triptych.
The painting remains partially visible (one painting has been covered), Rue de l’Épitaphe, Besançon (FR)

Young illustrator tired on graffiti, Agustino Iacurci create universes and dreamlike characters, falsely naive, recongnizable at first glance. His edition and print work regave him the taste to paint on thewall, enjoying places, surfaces and medium size to develop his imaginary world composed of histoire à tirroir between surrealism and youth litterature.
