While we last heard from him in Rome, Fintan Magee is now in Sapri where he just finished working on this new piece entitled “Woman With Aloe Vera Plant”.

Based on Grant Woods painting ‘Woman with Plants’ This painting depicts a local woman in the small town of Sapri in South of Italy. The mural references the social realist tradition of painting regular people within their working environment and celebrates the role of motherhood in South Italian communities. The Aloe Vera plant can be seen growing in many gardens and balconies in the local area and is also important to the artist personally because during his childhood, his own mother grew the plant, often using it to help heal his cuts or bruises if he was injured.

The piece was painted as part of the Incipit project so take a look at more images below and check back with us later for more from Mr Magee.13119800_1107291375960764_3906366425104079086_o 13129635_266207793724184_1856212847_n
