Gummy Gue (Marco and Andrea Mangione) is an artistic duo who works mainly in the public space, based in Catania, Italy. They know the graffiti writing environment in the early 2000s, investigating and experimenting on the expressive possibilities who come near to urban contemporary art.
Their research focused on a system of formal codes that follow a certain logic, a language of signs that has his rules and reference channels. A personal grammar that expresses itself in a suspended vision, to suggest possible universes through figuration which borders with abstraction, a research started with iconic characters that have accompanied the artists from the beginning of their path.
The breakdown of the elements is the result of a search to the synthesis that tends to exhibit positive and vibrant vibes to the representation of a flexible space, an open dialogue with the architecture and the environment. Sports facilities and recreational areas are urban spaces where experiment the movement and the crossing of a usable space, to obtain a variable vision that regenerates continuously, as in a virtual simulation lived in real space.
Several of their works, such as Playground and Skatepark, have been recognized by magazines and platforms dedicated to design and architecture such as Domus, Designboom, AD Magazine, Architectural Record and many others.
