All You Need is God

Posted on Mar 12, 2009 | 6 comments


Here’s a new stencil that appeared yesterday on via Baccina in Monti. It’s always interesting to when I see religious street art, but I suppose given that we’re in the land of the Pope, it’s not surprising. I’m not sure who the artist is because I don’t know which one goes by the symbol in the upper right corner. Anyone know?

Update! I just went for lunch and the stencil has been painted over! Good think I captured it yesterday. P pointed out that it’s actually next to the back entrance of the church on via Madonna dei Monti, so they probably didn’t take too kindly to it.

  1. Brava, nice shot and nice timing! Have a friend who does religious street art, will ask her if she knows.

  2. It took some pretty good timing to capture that!

    If it had been in Napoli, they wouldn’t have bothered painting over it, the rubbish would have obscured it instead! πŸ˜‰

  3. great pic. πŸ™‚

  4. Never thought about Pope Grafitti! I am not a grafitti an like some are. Your city is too beautiful to be defaced like all that on the walls and doors. Sad.

  5. GB – Wow, very cool…let me know what she says.

    Haha Mookie, well there are plenty that are still around, but the church must have some extra paint lying in back for these cases πŸ™‚

    Virginia – Yes, we’ve debated this on the blog when I posted a series about San Lorenzo. It personally doesn’t bother me, but I know it does for a lot of people. I guess I’ve become immune!

  6. A long overdue update but this isn't the work of a singular artist, but rather part of the initiative run by Fefe Project: http://www.fefeproject.com/
