The owner of the building, Rocco Pellegrino, is an Italian immigrant who is continuing the romantic tradition of the second hand bookshop in a time when bookstores are slowly disappearing. A collector himself, the shop is filled with all sorts of magical objects. The wall was inspired by the stories that Rocco recounted to me and includes images of him as a young man, as well as his beloved cat Sinbad. It was a pleasure to be able to paint the wall for him. — Alice Pasquini
