Artists Take a Ride on a 4-Story Goldfinch Painted on an Abandoned Building in Naples
Graffiti & Street Art reports this giant goldfinch (“The Goldfinch of Scampia”) was painted on the side of a troubled building in Naples in 2009 by German artists Simon Jung and Paul & Hanno Schweizer. Afterward the three perched on the building’s ledge for this great shot. (via graffiti & street art)
“The Cardillo of Scampia”.
In September 2009, Simon Jung and Paul & Hanno Schweizer painted a songbird over 4 storeys of a building in Naples, known throughout Italy as a stronghold for drug dealing. In this text the three artists describe the situation in Naples’s “problem area”, how they gained access to the neighbourhood and made contact with its inhabitants and what prompted them to undertake their project “Goldfinch”.
