Street art arrives in Cagliari: Ericailcane's new mural is an allegory of life


Ericailcane's new mural is an allegory of life: the well-known street artist created it in Cagliari's Sant'Elia neighborhood.

On July 15, on the occasion of the finissage of the group exhibition The Memory of Water, theAsteras Association and the partners of Cagliari Urbanfest will officially unveil the new mural that Ericailcane has created in Cagliari, at number 79 Schiavazzi Street, in the Sant’Elia neighborhood.

The well-known street artist has painted on the facade of the building in front of the Parco degli Anelli a large blue cat playing the accordion, the central part of which consists of buildings crumbling and slipping away; perched there is a little bird pecking at the fragments. The cat is accompanied by two mice: one seems absorbed in reading a newspaper, the other dances and sows around a plant that is sprouting. It is anettle, with beneficial properties. The dancing mouse is performing a kind of propitiatory dance by which he intends to revive everything.

Ericailcane’s mural thus becomes an allegory of life in the form of street art: life that always regenerates, even if man destroys. The colors chosen by the artist, namely blue, light blue and green, are meant to recall those of the surrounding environment: that of the sea and the park on the Sant’Elia waterfront.

Through his works, characterized by anthropomorphic animals, the street artist addresses universal themes, immersing them in the local reality and the predominant colors of the environment in which he performs his murals.
