Bulgarian artist Nasimo painted his first mural in Italy, in the small village of Monteleone, for the Willoke Urban art Festival.

About The Mural

Entitled “The chains”, this mural by Nasimo is painted on an elementary school built after an earthquake. It depicts a girl dressed in feathers with chains on her arms and a birdhouse on her hip, and a bird that is tied up with a red string to the house. The girl, for the artist, symbolize all of the souls in the material world. The birdhouse represent the heart and the bird is the soul.
People want to be free but “they have to cut off the strings and the chains to finally join the free souls and to begin their real journey”, says Nasimo. To do this, it’s necessary to make the Ego smaller  and to join the beauty of the universe.
The mural is inspired by Demeter, the goddess of the harvest and agriculture, which is the topic of the Willoke Festival.
