Serie Yonkis (Junkies)
ARTE DA STRADA PER STRADA
The work is part of a set of works for a project called “Yonkis” carried out in Rome during the years 2019 and 2020.
The project portrays in a classic Roman bust format some of the current inhabitants of the ancient city.
The project is inspired by the San Lorenzo neighborhood (Rome), A neighborhood where drunks, drug addicts and people with bad life fill a large part of its streets. It is a criticism of the evolution of the citizens of large cities of nowadays and of how the path of perdition is so common.
This specific work portrays an alcoholic, one-eyed, lost and soulless man. An example of that person with whom we have all met on a street at some point in any big city.
