Italian street artist Jorit Agoch is known for his photorealistic portraiture in street murals across the world. La Republica, an Italian newspaper, recently said that…
The artistic activity of Jorit is unique because he carries out graffiti and paintings on canvas at a very high technical level. He declares that his aim is to portray as close as possible to reality. This is possible only after a very thorough analysis and, subsequently, scrupulous reproduction with all kind of painting techniques.Together with this high technical level, Jorit sends an ethical message, has accompanied him since he started to paint. He considers the human face the most characterising part of humanity, almost like a totem to venerate. That is why he has concentrated on painting human faces with all their peculiarities.
Jorit’s new piece in Williamsburg, on N. 10th between Bedford and Driggs, is no exception, a perfect photorealistic face featuring the intense stare of a child and his signature red cheek lines.
