Urban signs and traces of art in San Lorenzo
Rome is a city of a thousand faces, all surprising. Eclectic, classical, baroque, constantly poised between beauty and opulent decadence. An open-air museum for art, a city where you can stroll among monuments belonging to the Roman past and at the same time discover the contemporary in urban art interventions in the streets "told" by street artists from around the world. From the wall of Alice Pasquini to that of Borondo, today we walk through the historic district of San Lorenzo for an incredible tour that extends between the street art works of the area: an area with a beating heart of art. Let's start together a journey to discover some of the most interesting works that are disseminated for this historic district that has become over the years the seat of many university students.
Our path then starts from San Lorenzo, which for several years has become a reference point for Roman street art. Here you can walk among the works of Alice Pasquini in Via dei Sabelli, characterized by its colorful and dreamlike style, which depict children playing and scenes of life in the city. The young Roman artist wants to bring color with her works in suburban and suburban neighborhoods; giving new life to a forgotten wall with a design means for her to give an extraordinary moment of intimate and personal surprise to those who have always made that journey, forcing him to slow down to admire him.
In via degli Etruschi it is possible to stop and admire the mural by the artist Agostino Iacurci, commissioned by the Assaggi bookshop: his works have a recognizable, poetic, unmistakable style. Characterized by large backgrounds, the choice of scarlet timbre and the range of harmonic colors, the interventions by Agostino Iacurci make up a complex melody.
Continuing, we discover that the elegant works of Christian Guémyal century C215, which depict Caravaggio's masterpieces through the stencil technique, come to life on the walls of San Lorenzo. The intense humanity of the seventeenth-century painter, together with the great expressive power, revive in C215, which focuses on divine subjects and does not load them with incredible realism.
We continue in via dei Volsci up to the Scalo San Lorenzo on the trail of the very young Spanish artist Borondo, who at only 22 years arrives to study in Rome thanks to a scholarship granted by the Academy of Fine Arts. His murals, which depict naked, faces and hands, reflect the restlessness and the restlessness of our days, all in hues for most monocrome. And 'just arriving at the San Lorenzo airport (Via dello Scalo di S. Lorenzo) that you can see the huge face covered by a hand: on YouTube, in the video called "BORONDO LOGOUT Project - San Lorenzo Rome 2013", you can discover all the phases of the realization.
