Gianluca Crudele, often under the pseudonym of Barlo, is an Italian painter and designer based in Hong Kong working prevalently in the street. His compositions, often allegorical and melancholic, feature object and beings holding a mystical sense of remoteness, like a distant memory, mysterious and yet familiar. 

He currently works as Design Director at Superunion Hong Kong.
