“Superpope” is the work that has mainly contributed to make Mauro Pallotta (in art Maupal) famous in the world of street art.
Last October, Maupal has depicted Papa Francesco on a new mural, in vicolo del Campanile, this time focused on playing tic-tac-toe and drawing the symbol of peace. Although this mural was cancelled in a few hours, it was already entered into history.
The roman artist chose to dedicate himself to street art as it is capable of communicating the artistic language to a larger number of people. In his works he always try to express what he thinks, in an attempt to synthesize the subject, always adding a touch of irony and brilliance. He believes that curiosity is the basis of everything, but it is not enough. His artistic expression is based on three main elements: his personal emotions, the technical knowledge and the interpretation of actuality.
Maupal will be a guest of the XXII edition of Romics and will reproduce on stage his famous graffito featuring SuperPope on Sunday 8 October 2017 at 10.30.
