Lucamonte-Roma-1

Italian Lucamaleonte was recently in Rome where he painted this beautiful wall for the project ART OF BLUE, a global art collaboration with local communities and local artists
The wall, entitled ‘#BACKTOBLUE’ and curated by 999Contemporary, is inspired by Gustave Dore’s etching The Deluge.  Making use of several techniques (stencil and free hand) manages Lucamonte to give new life to the work of an old master, a truly good one.
