With these series Merinero reinterprets our graphic environment. He scans the graphic communication of contemporary media language;searches the street for interesting elements on billboards, posters etc., frees the elements from their context with a Stanley Knife and takes them to his studio.The elements mounted on foam or cardboard become backgrounds, characters, and catch phrases in two types of stories:Street Stories and Tall Stories.
With Street Stories Antonio converts existing material into collages. They are fresh, highly present, visual poems that reflect life’s universal everyday occurrences.
