About the mural
Contorno Urbano, has chosen Roc Blackblock to paint the February mural as part of the Project 12+1. Every month, for a year, 12 street artists will create a new artistic intervention.
Roc Blackblock’s stencil piece, which is inspired by a picture of a famous clown, aims to transmit a message that invite people to rediscover aspects of being child, aspects that the adult life takes to forget, like spontaneity, creativity, fantasy and imagination.
The artwork will be on show until the beginning of March, before being replaced by the next month’s intervention.
