After Ukraine and Kiev, Guido Van Helten is now in Italy where he was invited by the guys from Big City Life to work on a large mural in the district of Tor Marancia, Rome.
This painting is a remix of a photograph by Francesco Paolo Michetti which is entitled “io sarò”. The use of old images has become a recurrent theme in Guido’s work, through the nostalgia and the sentiment community attach to photographs, old stories and people. Images can become distorted, faded or misused over time, they become our mythology.
