We wanted to share with everyone some work from one of our artist TVBOY! He painted this mural of Nelson Mandela back in March of 2014 in Turin, Italy.

March 2014. Portrait of Nelson Mandela. Turin, Italy. I was invited by Square 23 Gallery to realized a mural on the facade of Borgata Tesso a center for cultural integration in Turin. Nelson Mandela had recently passed away and seemed the best reference for a wall painting against racism and to support the activity of the center.
