Word to Mother Chooses Aqua for ItalyJuxtapoz // Saturday, 31 Jul 2010
“Fame is an art event hosted by a crazed pasta eating lunatic by the name of Angelo Milano,” Word to Mother states. “He invites artists from around the world to make art on walls in his home town in southern Italy. The food is fantastic, the weather is great and there are plenty of walls to paint.
“I've been painting some large scale MOTHER pieces using my signature type. I paint the outside of the letters so that the inside leaves the texture of the walls underneath. The walls out here are perfect for it as they are so textured and have a beautiful history. The local people seem to love the new art that’s appearing all over town which makes it even better.
“I worked on a huge rooftop piece yesterday and the retired couple that lived in the house sat and watched me paint for eight hours. I can't speak any Italian and they couldn’t speak any English but somehow we were still able to communicate. They made sure I had everything I needed which was really touching.”
