Etam Cru are currently in Rome for their first solo show BEDTIME STORIES in Italy, that opened on October 30th at La Galleria VARSI. The show is curated by Marta Gargiulo, and will go on until December 28, 2014. During their stay in the city, the Polish duo created this large size mural on a 32 meter high building wall, showing a dark haired old man with thick mustache, having a cup of coffee while rising from a rubbish bin. The piece has a lot of elements of the place and the country it is painted in. The mural might be seen as a comment of an Italian or European economy situation.
