Urban Solid is an anonymous group of artists born through friendship and a common passion for sculpture.
Their ‘Solids’, as they call them, are made using construction materials such as plaster or cement. Cities have started displaying on their walls, sculptures with vivid pop colours and strong social messages. Urban Solid aims to reflect the society in which we live in by highlighting problems through their art, making them visible to everyone and thereby stimulating collective consciousness. ‘Adam and Eve’ is among their most well-known installations, perhaps because the sculptures are anatomical life-size casts and are dressed to mirror society's behaviour.
The interaction between the sculptures and the public is one of its most interesting and unique aspects. This form of art is for everyone to admire and acknowledge, which is why the artists behind Urban Solid will keep propelling this movement further. Their work can be seen all around us from Milan, to Paris, to London.
