During these days, the international street artist Ericailcane has realized a new mural in via Schiavazzi, Sant’Elia neighborhood, in front of Parco degli Anelli. In the first wall, a big cat plays stuffed made of city buildings while a little bird takes a look with a bomb in his beak. In the other side, a rat reads a newspaper and another rat dances under a nettle, a plant with benefic and valuable properties. The scene is a symbol of rebirth and regeneration, despite the intrusive human actions. The tones of blue, azure and green reflect the surrounding environment: all the shades of a sea which embrace Sant’Elia’s shoreline.
Next July 15th, the closing day of the exhibition La memoria dell’acqua, the Associazione Asteras with the partners of Cagliari Urbanfest, will host a public meeting in via Schiavazzi 79 to present the mural by Ericailcane.
