Project: 'Graffito Blasfemo'

Project: 'Graffito Blasfemo'

The project is official under way in collaboration with artist and gallery owner Ben Oakley. 
The pieces entitled 'Graffito Blasfemo', named after an ancient graffito dating back to the Roman Empire inscribed on a wall near the Palatine Hill in Rome. It is the first known depiction of the crucifixion of Jesus and notably, in mockery.
The multi-media creations will include a large-scale installation and several wall-hung pieces with element of traditional glass making and graffiti/street art.
I will be updating our progress regularly in the coming months with photos of this great project so keep checking in to see progress shots!
