Wall painting curated by “a.DNA collective” for “Giacomo Vidiri” ONLUS. A tribute to biodiversity, to natural balance and to life taken from the microscope pictures and shown on the wall with the mural by Italian artist Krayon, painted in these days at the “Farnesina” Scientific and Musical High School in Rome.
– Mural’s genesis
In these first weeks of April, the “Giacomo Vidiri” ONLUS association is at work with its very young members and volunteers, to restore the garden of the “Farnesina” Scientific and Musical High School in Rome. To crown this long and arduous works journey, which is part of the numerous activities carried out by the ONLUS born in memory of the young Giacomo Vidiri, the association “a.DNA” was invited to care and realize a mural intervention on the walls that borders the garden.
The art curator of “a.DNA” Mirko Pierri, following a first meeting and inspection with Michela Bonfanti (mother of Giacomo) and Michela Consoli (architect and association’s collaborator), suggests Krayon as a possible artist and interpreter, suitable both for aesthetics and contents.
– The artwork
“Macro Life” is the title of the mural, contextualized in the architecture of the walls on which the artist painted geometric shapes, playing with lines that articulate the structure at regular and harmonic visual times.
A visual musical rhythm that perfectly combines with the architectural and natural context. The various sizes pixels (the pixel art is an unmistakable signature of the Southern Italy born artist), are placed as the human cells and the vegetable fibers represented in a macro view, taken from real under microscope photos.
A tribute to nature, to mathematical perfection that marks biodiversity and the delicate balance that make up the symphony of our lives.
– Symbols and Objectives
What more symbolic place than a Scientific and Musical High School to host a similar artwork?
The mural also explaine the work and the basic foundations of the “Giacomo Vidiri” association, created to raise awareness among young adolescents spreading the value of their lives. The objective is to improve the living world, starting from the care of oneself, of the school attended, of the city and neighborhood’s streets. Among the association’s activities, many focus on music, Giacomo’s passion.
As in the Krayon’s extremely symbolic mural, life is composed of microparticles, small things, pigments of color that form the complexity of the forms together, the conseguences of our actions in the world.
The a.DNA association, with the artist Krayon, through the artistic and cultural tools, wanted to give the school a visual representation of the efforts that every day the “Giacomo Vidiri ONLUS” puts in the place to give the possibility to the boys who attend the Liceo Farnesina, to regain possession of the inaccessible spaces and maintain their care.
Respect and harmony with the things that surround us, are the first steps to respect ourselves and find meaning in our existence.
