Biancoshock's recent installation in Milan is called Borderlife - a social commentary on people who are forced to live in extreme conditions such as hundreds of people in Bucharest living underground in sewers. Small holes are wallpapered and tiled looking like fully-furnished rooms.
"If some problems cannot be avoided, make them comfortable."

About Biancoshock (literally from the artist's website)

Biancoshock lives and works in Milan, Italy. For a very long time he didn’t consider himself as an artist, until, one day he decided to understand the purpose and the nature of his work. Soon becomes clear that there is no existing "category" that can fit his urban inclination, typical of the Urban Art, and his expressive process which is very close to the classic activist and performative art; this is the reason why he decides to give birth to EPHEMERALISM. Ephemeralism has the purpose of producing works of art that have to exist briefly in space but limitlessly in time through the photography, the video and the media. He has realized more that 650 interventions in the streets of Italy, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, England, Hungary, Lithuania, Malesia, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Slovak, Slovenia and Spain and he is not thinking about stopping.
