Mural dedicated to the cycle of the sun.
It was created on the occasion of the 2021 edition of Saltinpiazza, the street art festival.
The mural project was created by Pikitanka, a historical creative collective composed of Letizia Veiluva, Stefano Porro, Silvia Caronna and Alessandro Pugliese, to which the artistic hands of Pasquale Riso, Matilde Roasio, Sofia Gioè, Beatrice De Matteis and Arianna Mortarino were added for the occasion.
"Suryas" (ie the Sun, understood in the meaning of divinity in Indian culture), is an imposing masonry: it consists of five walls that measure about 4 x 2 meters each and "tells" the cycle of the sun also thanks to the delicate words of Alessandro Pugliese, imprinted on the mural: "Let's trust the sun, let's fantasize about our future, let's believe in each other because under every roof there is always at least one heart beating and quivering with the desire to be heard".
"We finished the job in five days and like every year we go home full of indelible emotions - explains Letizia Veiluva - This year's artistic proposal reflects the need to resume the rhythm of a life that has been undergoing strong shocks for the past two years. The cycle of the sun, from the moment it is born, to the moment in which it allows itself a little rest, to indicate the aesthetic beauty of a completely natural spectacle, of course, but also to underline the desire to return to look at this representation, to be part of it, without limitations. Special thanks to Francesca Ferraris, Milo Scotton and the Liceo Artistico B. Alfieri, without whom we would not have been able to achieve all this and to conclude, a dutiful thanks to the help offered by Flavio Veiluva ".
With "Suryas" the Pikitanka have put their signature, for the third consecutive year (2019-2020-2021), on the walls of the splendid Asti village where the previous works are still visible:
