"Veicolo leggero", Ragusa/ Sicily 2017
. Last week i have been invited to paint this old gas station in Ragusa by @festiwall_rg . This picture describes basically a plastic car for kids. This car has no engine as this architecture has also no longer activity. It looks like a car for adults, but you can drive it only by pushing the pedals and operating the oversized steering wheel. I painted this pucture in two times, the left part describing this volume, with a special care on lighting and colors to give it the aspect of something realistic, and the flat part on the right, evoking in an abstract way the 50´s street prints and advertisings.it could be the print on the box of this toy also. I have been really impressed and delighted to be welcomed so warmly, by people deeply dedicated to art. Setting and developping public art in this Unesco classified city requires a strong belief and a real connexion with patrimony , architecture and population. That is how Vincenzo, Antonio, Fabrizio and all their incredible ( never seen before ) staff, Giulia, Elena, Francesca..., are making it possible. Thank you so much for this and see you soon!
