STREET ART in Rome (23.12.15)

The Redeemer Child (2015)
Seth (Paris, 1972)
Tor Marancia

"Seth" Mallard painted a giant boy climbing an imaginary ladder, seemingly drawn with crayons. The title makes reference to the statue of Christ above Rio de Janeiro, and the work honors Luca, a young boy from Tor Marancia who died in an incident while he was playing. Here the boy on the building is peering out a blue window into another world.

This is the fruit stand below The Redeemer Child.
