How many times did you happen to wonder about who did that big mural painting standing in front of you every time you sit in your car waiting for the traffic light to turn green? Or what about the small graffiti you found out about on a random wall that had always looked simply impersonal while strolling the city center? Or who changed that traffic signal that has become a work of art thanks to the stencil technique? The Associazione Culturale 400ml in collaboration with Napoli Paint Stories Vol. 1 project decided to reveal who hides behind all the works spread around Naples city center with a street art and graffiti tour around the historic center of Naples.
The project, in collaboration with the Ministry, Anci and the City of Naples, will allow for the discovery of the artworks belonging to the great actors in the Italian and international art scene, including Banksy, C215, Zilda, Alice Pasquini, Miedo, Cyop & Kaf, Arp, Zolta.
The Associazione Culturale 400ml investigates and explores the positive developments which graffiti and street art generated with relation to other art forms such audiovisuals, photography, graphics and web design. 400ml represents a concrete possibility for association among young urban creative people in both Campania and Italy. The association aims at promoting culture with special attention to the phenomena of graffiti writing, street art, and urban creativity through the planning, designing, and realization of events, courses, exhibitions and workshops.
