Graphic Surgery, V3RBO, and 2501 recently finished their murals as part of the Picturin Torino Art Festival. It seems like everyday artists are tackling large scale walls in significant historical and architectural locations around the world. This time Graphic Surgery, V3rbo and 2501 take to the walls of Torino and utilize industrial landscapes to create memorable works of art.


“TORINO 2012

The third chapter starts from Parco Dora – the heart of the large scale Spina3 area transformation – extending further the bond between PicTurin and Torino, contributing to a Glocal renewal of the city.

The park – built on a vast area once occupied by big factories and representing one of the city’s biggest “green lungs” – is unique in its genre, thanks to the integration between natural habitats and the remnants of an industrial past. In fact, some parts of the old warehouses and factories have been excluded from the large scale demolition which has taken place in the past years. An example of preexisting structures are the large roof of the ex Vitali steelworks supported by its red steel pillars, the towers and the large basins turned into aquatic gardens.”
