Heavy Clouds Always Break Up. Street Art by Beast

Milan (Italy). If you are in Milan in these days (by the way, there will be the fashion week soon!) and you walk around the popular area around Corso Garibaldi, you will probably notice the fantastic masterpiece by the Italian artist Beast. The title is “Heavy Clouds Always Break Up” and it shows a long boat with some politicians on board. It’s easy to recognise Matteo Renzi, Angela Merkel, David Cameron (three Prime Ministers) and the so called “eurosceptic” Matteo Salvini: they are all on the same boat trying to cross a river in a stormy context. A true metaphor of these contemporary times inspired by the painting “Washington Crossing the Delaware” by Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze.

I love this example of Street Art, I think it’s a great form of expression, accessible to everybody (those passing from here on their way to the office, or coming for a night walk, easily stop in front of Beast’s work and take some photos) and it seems that people are quite enthusiastically following the appearance of such works on Corso Garibaldi’s wall.

I tried to photograph Beast’s new work without people and without distortions, so that you can appreciate much more its details. If you want to see it live, copy and paste these coordinates in google maps 45.479095, 9.185913
