My goal was to create something monumental and meaninful for Italian people. So i found a magnificent Italian statue made by the sculptor Giulio Monteverde. It is placed on the biggest cemetery in italy and it's called "Angello della ressurezione" which means: the Angel of Ressurection. I recreate this image with the head splitted from his body, to separate reason (head) from passion (body). An Angel with no desires.
First time going to Italy you quickly realize the Italians are more fun and beautiful in live then how we see them in the movies. Milano has a great energy and I really felt at home in there. Warm people, warm talking, warm food and weather, just perfect for a brazilian guy like me.
The Looper Festival had many good artists, people that I've been admiring since I started this journey. People like Marco (Shine Royal), King Raptus, Dan Kitchener, Ligsd, Feik, Binho and so on. And beyond that, I was there with my hometown friends: Vejam and Rizo. The trip couldn't be better!
We had a nice spot to paint, flat and tall wall in the center of Milano city. The only problem was that I just had 2 days to finish the wall, because my flight tickets date. The challenge was huge: do not make something ordinary in front of all those great artists.
I believe, after one and half day of working, my goal was done. The street art became powerful, with visual impact and meaning. With my task done, I could fly back home satisfied, with the Italian spirit now placed inside me. Thank you Marco and Raptuz for the great time!
