Here an amazing piece painted by Italian artist Alberonero for this years ALT!rove – Street Art Festival, a festival that has brought together an incredible line up of talented artists.
The new mural, painted at Piazza Dante in the Materdomini quarter in Catanzaro and titled Porco Benvenuto, 158 toni (Pork Welcome, 158 tones) is a good representation of Alberonero’s work keeping up his fascination for colour and basic geometrical shapes like the square and creating pieces that speak about balance and harmony, just like the one we see here.
The title of this piece is based in an inscription, “Porco Benvenuto”, that has dominated the history of the place for almost 40 years and that according to the local legend was written by men forming a human ladder to write as high as possible.
Following the festival’s main concept about Abstractism (read here) Alberonero creates a mural that is a tribute to this small enterprise through a riot of 158 different colours that move from cold to warm and that seem to strengthen the relationship between architecture and landscape, between man and the history of the place.
