I’ve recently been invited to paint on a 5×5 m wall of a campus in Pesaro by the nice chaps behind RE/UR – Reperti Urbani, a new urban art project.

‘St. Anthony Seduced by The Infinite’ is a piece part of my ongoing series focused on a personal and contemporary take on classical art themes.

The saint is here tempted by the promise of eternal life, represented by a reverse pig’s skull (the hog is in fact one of the saint’s classical symbols often depicted close to his figure).

On bottom right the latin words Ad æternum (forever).
