VIDEO: Massive Graf Collabo Lines the Streets of Rome

If the Sistine Chapel had a street level Italian equivalent this might be it. Over the course of several days, seven artists linked up for an extensive mural in Rome, sprayed across the support structures of the Ostiense Railway Bridge underpass. Covering a series of walls and columns the work was carried out by artists 2501, Gaia, Andreco, Martina Merlini, Ozmo, Moneyless and Tellas with an assist from 999 Contemporary Gallery. Says Gaia, the project features “three portraits of John Keats along with Ozmo’s Gramsci and Percy Shelley who are all buried in the Protestant Cemetary close by under the Cestius Pyramid.”

It’s a highly-detailed mix of forms and abstractions where each individual’s vision complements the others as pieces of an intricate whole. Due to the layout of the overpass and lots of careful planning, the mural effectively shifts shape as passer-byers change their perspective. Check out Gaia’s Flickr for some work in progress shots.
