  • About the artwork

    The artist Mr. Savethewall said he had gained the idea of this work by listening to the radio in 2013. The situation at the time was catastrophic: Italy in the eyes of Europe looked like a dead country and he had nothing to express. You can imagine the regret and the enormous suffering that all of this caused in the artist, patriot convinced and deeply in love with his country.

    The artist has thus been able to depict his deep sadness, representing the greatest pain that one can experience: the loss of a son for a mother. As an allegory, the artist chooses to represent "La Pietà" by Michelangelo: As Our Lady wishes for the resurrection of his son Jesus, he believes in the resurrection of our country, a great homeland, a mother of excellent minds and great inventors. The background is blue to emphasize Mr. Savethewall's patriotism.

    Unique work realized with mixed technique on canvas, signed in original and accompanied by the certificate of authenticity of the artist.

Mr. SaveTheWall

Italy

Translation in progress

Mr. SaveTheWall is a multi-faceted Italian artist who is becoming really important the art scene, using the languages of street art and communication, from the latest trends of contemporary art today. His works represent an interpretation of today's society in an ironic and critical way. As the chosen pseudonym, Mr. Savethewall does not work on the walls... permanently! Just to safeguard the urban decoration, he use adhesive tape, easily removable, to put his colorful work on the walls. As suport for his art, Mr. Savethewall uses recyclable and simple materials such as cardboard. His works have strong, direct and targeted messages.

A slight irony towards contemporary society, allows him to draw inspiration from personalities of the world of culture, cinema and art history; but his works also lack the appeal of the religious and political sphere. Regardless of the support chosen, his works feature strong, direct and targeted messages. In order to make his messages even more immediate, Mr. Savethewall in addition to the iconographic register often accompanies the verbal one.
