Mr Blob and Neon
went into a maximum security prison, bringing art to the inmates
In collaboration with Opera Prison and Milan city council we started a project to bring art inside the jail. It is an ongoing project which interests 17 walls, all located in the open areas of the prison.
The first wall was realised by Mr. Blob and Neon with the help of two inmates. The artists broke the monotony of grey walls with a landscape which brings the spectator’s eye over the wall to the outside world. The piece depicts a man who tries to cross the canyon walking on a rope. This is a metaphor of the hard path which lead the inmate from one side to another, from the jail to the outside world. It is a message of hope and redemption.
