Artist creates gigantic works of art along the Tiber River

Sustainable street art...What is it? 

Internationally renowned South African artist, William Kentridge is introducing this "green” technique to the embankments along Rome's famed Tiber river.

"It is completely unknown to me that something like this, as contemporary and temporary art is in a city like Rome, where we only expect some of the good old stuff, plus the Vatican.”

Kentridge's large-scale silhouettes are well over 30 feet in height. His artwork is called 'Triumphs and Laments: A Project for Rome' and it is his largest work to date. This method of reverse graffiti is accomplished by strategically power-washing the dirt and debris off of the walls from stencils.

"We were just wondering was it modern was it old? And it has this kind of mixture. So, it's very nice.” 

And as you can see, the end result is truly remarkable. His sketches recount a visual story from the Eternal City's mythological past to its present day urban landscape. This series has more than eighty friezes that span to over 1,600 feet along the Tiber's historic waterfront.

"I like it a lot. It's huge. It's fantastic! I like it!”

The project is in collaboration with Tevereterno, an organization dedicated to the revitalization of this river. Unlike most installations, this series will eventually disappear on its own, as the natural process of urban decay will soon re-soil the walls along the Tiber river.
