Our friend Opiemme recently painted a new collective mural painted with the partecipation of 1000 children from 3 to 13 years old of the school “I.C. Via Giuseppe Messina” in Rome, Italy. The children chose negative words to be deleted by throwing eggs filled with colors in a collective performance that were accompanied by some positive words that the children suggested. The mural also represents constellation of Pisces – a symbol of renaissance.

EDJINN recently completed a killer new wall for Contorno Urbano. Edjinn lives and works in Barcelona. He studied design in the Art School of Winchester and graphic design in the Elisava School. Illustrator and graphic designer, he’s famous for his style both naïve and satirical, as for his versatility: urban art, graffiti, illustrations, edition of the “Fine Arts” magazine, commercial works, collages, etc.
For his intervention in the April “12+1”, he told us what was the idea: “I want to contrast old people with new technologies, social networks and the new ways to interact that use young people, and the disconnection it might be for older people”. The artist also insists in that: what is important to him is that his works can stay somehow ambiguous, in order that everyone can read them their own way.
