Entitled “EIRENE” the wall represents a tribute to urban art that leave more and more peace messages that oppose an oppressive system. In Greek mythology Eirene was the personification of peace. She was the daughter of Zeus and Themis and sister of Dike (Justice) and Eunomia (Law). In the center of the paint there is a hand holding a brush in a realistic black and white that contrasts with a colorful background turquoise and yellow. Tha hand is the author of the symbol of peace painted on the wall and at the same time represents the central line of the symbol it self. Artist and expression come together in a strong message. The number 4 resumes the number of the school on which the work develops. read more

Wally was born in Carrara, where he attended Art School and in 1996 he moved to Milan to attend the course in Advertising Art Direction at IED (European Institute of Design). Here in Milan, he met Alita.  Both in love of the stencil technique, they began to create drawings and handmade posters, quickly making themselves known in the street-art world. In 2004, they start their first illegal actions in the street, stickering and pasting up posters. In their laboratory, situated in the Ortica district in Milan, Orticanoodles logos took shape. With the subversive power of Zibe, Orticanoodles started a blazing activity in the streets, soon evolving into a real urban guerrilla campaign.
