Gaia Is In Rome – Studies Architecture, Palazzos, Clouds

GAIA, il piccone demolitore e risanatore

Here is a new piece from Street Artist Gaia in Rome, where he is studying again the built environment and it’s historical and cultural ramifications, then interpreting through painting in the public sphere.

He says his new wall painting is inspired by Girgio De Chirico and represents the relationship between identity and function in the process that a city uses when building. While in town and working with the 999Contemporary gallery, he cleverly draws a connection between historical Italian architecture and “The Cloud” by architect Massimiliano Fuksas that is currently in formation. Rotten bananas? Check. Undisturbed local throwies next to and beneath his mural? Check.
