Alice Pasquini was recently in Rochester, USA where she was invited to paint for the newest edition of the always excellent Wall Therapy Street Art Festival.

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

Take a look at more images after the break and then check back with us soon for more updates from Wall Therapy.
