About
Mr. Savethewall is an artist from Como who uses the stencil technique to create works of art on simple or everyday surfaces like cardboard, wood, metal or post-consumer materials. His is an art which disturbs, one that puts forward ironic, provocative and iconoclastic messages regarding social and political themes and current events. As stated by his pseudonym, rather than painting on walls, Mr. Savethewall respects and "saves" them, affixing his works temporarily, using four pieces of adhesive tape in the corners. His first works, put up on public walls in Como, were removed by passersby and taken home to be framed, arousing the interest of the art world, which began inviting him into art galleries and public spaces.

Mr. Savethewall is an open-minded young artist who in very a short time has well established itself in the Italian scenery. Some of his works are on display at the 2015 International Exposition of Milan. Do not forget to visit him if you are in Como

Not just a common art gallery
I discovered this particular place while walking through the streets in the city center. Mr Save the Wall - theartist - is a very kind person to have some words with: he'll explain you his artwork in details, giving explanations about the meaning of his bizarre and over the top works. Not only an art gallery, but an open-minded space where you can relax talking 'bout art with Mr Save the Wall...
Y'all just have to take a look at it!
