Triscele: A Street Art Project in Sicily

Words by My Art Guides Editorial Team
June 28, 2016

Triscele is an artistic project created, curated and performed by Martina Merlini, Moneyless and Sten Lex.

Triscele is a motif consisting of three interlocked spirals, three bent human legs, or three curved lines extending from the center of the symbol. It is known to be an ancient symbol of Sicily and it has been chosen to name this project with the intention of representing the union of three diverse artistic subjects.
Triscele will be a journey of a group of artists looking for a connection with the Sicilian landscape and a contact with the time and history that nature holds and tells through its outlines. The artists will create graphic overlappings to recall the Sicilian landscape, blending past and present, an artist with the other in order to produce unique works as unique was the symbolism of the Triscele.
