The Urban Art collective Truly from the Italian city of Turin, which is specialized in creating anamorphotic artworks, is currently also developing on similar things. Their new work is called “PLAYGROUND”, which was produced for the architecture festival “Architettura in Città” on a basketball court in Turin, Italy.
The Truly crew spent two days holding a workshop with twenty students ranging from middle school to IED students, teaching them how to approach new perspectives through anamorphic painting. Their goal was to come up with a new design for Drovetti Middle School’s playground. The resulting area is a bombastic and colorful intersection of different sport and game fields which kids from that very school can use for play during recess or gym class.
In addition to the sporting activities, basketball courts are also increasingly popular as a canvas for the expression of artistic creativity. Just recently the court in Paris, which was designed by the fashionbrand Pigalle and the creative agency Ill-Studio, could be admired. Wedged between two buildings, the creatives placed a splendid techinicolor explosion on Rue Duperré.
