Welcome back to Black&White Wednesdays! As you might have guess from an older post, I have been enchanted by the Tor Marancia houses’ street art and especially by the Cherry tree house. Basically the idea whole behind the Big City Life project was to upgrade some old houses’ walls with colors, adding art and freshness and transform the neighborhood is an open-air contemporary art museum that would have been unique in the world! And it actually is! Street art like this is powerful ad wonderful.

The organization involved the local community, schools and neighborhood associations. The more than 500 families who live in the public housing of the historic Lot 1 of Tor Marancia, owned by the ATER of the Municipality of Rome, met twenty-two artists, gathered in  Rome from ten different countries to paint the entire neighborhood. The work created by each artist is the result of this meeting for a total of twenty-two monumental works, realized on the facades of the eleven buildings of the district of via di Tor Marancia 63. (from http://www.bigcitylife.it/hello-world/)

One of my favorite painting was clearly the cherry blossomed tree, and another one was a whale/fish wall painting: it looks like an abstract painting if you look only at some detail of it, but it was truly amazing. You can see the fishes and if you look at the big picture the whale, the painting is so realistic: you can almost feel the movement of the waves in the strokes given by the blurriness.

Don’t you feel like swimming in some Caribbean sea?
