IT'S RAINING OLYMPIC COLORS! ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI LACER/ACTIONS ART FOR 2012 LONDON OLYMPIC GAMES

Blue, Black, Red, Yellow and Green: five colors representing our Continents. Five colors we find in the five circles of the historic Olympiad logo. The 2012 London Olympic Games suggested me to toy with my “Lacer/actions” artpieces, realistic and not manipulated images of torn and decomposed posters. In my collection  - more than 40.000 images – I found interesting and particular works, as the piece I show here...

IT'S RAINING OLYMPIC COLORS - ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI 2012, MIXED MEDIA (REALISTIC IMAGE OF TORN AND DECOMPOSED POSTER)

There're no circles and no official logo, but the 5 colors movement is so funny and amazing... Yes, it's raining Olympic Games colors! Someone shattered the circles and the colors are now able to move everywhere, to fall and to go up... A metaphore about humanity profound hopes and desires of freedom?          

ABOUT 2012 OLYMPIC GAMES

The 2012 Olympic Games will take place in a host of new venues as well as using existing and historic facilities. Many of the new facilities will be reused and the plans are part of the regeneration of Stratford and Lower Lea Valley in East London.

The 2012 Summer Olympic Games will be held in London from today, July 27, to August 12, followed by the 2012 Para Olympic Games from August 29 to September 9. At the opening Ceremony around 100.000 people will be working on the Games – including 3.000 staff, up to 70.000 volunteers and a large number of contractors. The London 2012 Olympic logo has created considerable controversy and the spiralling cost of the Games is likely to be an ongoing problem...

London has hosted the Olympic Games on other two past occasions, in 1908 and 1948. The 2012 Olympics will make London the first city to have hosted the modern Games of three Olimpiades.
