FRA BIANCOSHOCK is one of Milan’s street artists. One of a kind, considering his work and marking his own words: “I love to lose my time in a project without future but that give me every day the goose bumps. I’m happy only when I feel goose bumps.”

The artist feels inspired by the unemployed, the homeless, the manager, the employee of the month, the student at the bus stop, the barman – the ordinary people who live every day in the city as well as its sounds, colors, and values.

Called Borderlife, his last street art project is meant to conceive a dialogue about the extreme living conditions many people are forced to endure. Precisely, Biancoshock was inspired by Bucharest, where over 600 people are living in the city’s sewers.

Biancoshock adorns a series of manholes in Milan as miniature living.

He feels he has the responsibility to explain to the common people through unconventional experiences like Borderlife that no one can force you to stay passive and silent.
