This lovely mural is the work of Portuguese designer, painter and self defined “street artist” EIME painted in Gaeta, Italy for Memorie Urbane 2014.
Combining stencil and a well-defined graphic approach, depicts EIME portraits whose often enigmatic gaze seems to be lost on something beyond the viewer. The cold colours of the mural seems to be balanced and softened by the warm face of a mature woman.
According to Eime he builds different hues and shades that compose these many portraits, appealing to a more manual art  and not only relying on spray paint. This seems to be reflected in the way EIME works his stencils. Just have a look at the pictures below. Two words; dedication and patience.
