A corpus of Cele$tial Letters gives shape to the sentence. Each individual element is in itself an oracle and proposition. Numbers were already used in 3000 B.C. to write the names of the gods. On the date of its founding, December 16, 1899, in its sign of fire, Sagittarius is part of the force, offering its winning symbol—the arrow.
Flycat, the pseudonym of Luca Massironi, is one of the main representatives of the first generation of street artists and writers in Europe. His numerous trips to East Los Angeles, his ties to the greatest masters worldwide, and his deep passion for graffiti led him to write his "Manifesto del Futurismo Celeste" with the objective of giving back to each individual letter its own expressive autonomy.
He has been the focus of numerous art shows both in Italy and abroad, giving great attention to the social-cultural side of his art: in 1998 he held the first Spray Art course at the C. Beccaria Juvenile Penal Institution in Milan; in 2006 he was the artistic director of the show “Dal Muro alla Tela” put on by the FAI (Italian Cultural and Environmental Foundation); and in 2008 he collaborated with the Youth Ministry to create a discussion table about urban art. Additionally, in 2016 he was the first European artist invited by the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to hold a workshop during the eighth edition of the FADJR.
