Tons de Primavera 2016 – Viseu, Portugal

“St. Peter holds the book of encryption” is the title of the mural painted in Viseu, Portugal for Tons de Primavera festival 2016.

It is meant to be a contemporary reinterpretation of “St. Peter in his throne”, a painting by portuguese Renaissance master Grão Vasco, who in fact was born in Viseu. The mural is to be considered as the latest installment in my ongoing series regarding saints.

The figure casts a three gesture as chinese people do, while holding a book showing a randomly generated 128-bit WEP key password. both details are meant to be metaphors of a personal reflection on our current times and the related recent changes in geo-political and economic world balances, as well as everyday habits heavily influenced by consumer technology.
