The Mob Train
A metro train is transformed into a delightful array of faces, but wait… is there something more sinister going on? Allusions to the mob and Mafia control of the city’s interests transform a moderately amusing work into a multi-levelled piece of art.
Street Corner Giraffes
Two giraffes, facing opposite directions; is it a metaphor, or just a groovy image? Either way, we like – enough to include it here at any rate.
Is it Arnie? Regardless, this piece caught our eye in downtown Trastevere as a perfect example of the cinematic obsessions currently swirling through Roman street art. Expect plenty of these on any graffiti-based tour of the Italian capital.
The Sightless Lad
Built from fragments of old newspaper before being posted to the wall, this piece of street art is breath-taking, complex and loaded with meaning. Are the missing eyes a mistake or a sharp political comment?
A Vibrant Finish
Finally, this delightful mural sums up all that’s great about the street art scene in Rome. It is fun, vibrant, brash, loud and overpowering – what’s not to like?
