Overview
More
Mr. Savethewall is an artist from Como who uses the stencil technique to create works of art on simple or everyday surfaces like cardboard, wood, metal or post-consumer materials. His is an art which disturbs, one that puts forward ironic, provocative and iconoclastic messages regarding social and political themes and current events. As stated by his pseudonym, rather than painting on walls, Mr. Savethewall respects and "saves" them, affixing his works temporarily, using four pieces of adhesive tape in the corners. His first works, put up on public walls in Como, were removed by passersby and taken home to be framed, arousing the interest of the art world, which began inviting him into art galleries and public spaces.
