Follow street artist Žilda as he displays his beautiful artworks around Naples.  Žilda is a self-taught artist who draws on history, literature, mythology and a sense of place for inspiration.  His techniques include  stencils, drawing, graphics, engraving, printmaking and painting.

While it is fascinating to see the process of how Žilda creates and displays his sympathetic work, I also loved experiencing the streets of Naples in this short documentary.

“From October 2011 to June 2012, Žilda brings his “Fragiles Fabulae” project to Naples. The parthenopean city becomes a hell inhabited by wounded angels ; who knows what happened to them but what better place could there be to heal their wounds? Eleven paper, oil and acrylic works revisiting and contextualizing paintings dear to the artist; eleven works of an aesthetics of wandering, from dawn to dusk, from uptown to port, from the dark belly to the light-burnt outskirts, a wandering carried along by the furious torpor and the circular energy of the city. Eleven “mises en scène” of a politics of the tragic and of the bodies’ sensuality in the capital of Punchinello, of his comic and ambiguous genius.”
