In a London still in lockdown, where uncertainties and doubts far outweigh confidence in the government and beyond, STIK, an English street artist, arrives to give a symbol of hope to the entire population. Two days ago Piccadilly Lights, the historic advertising screen in the famous square in the center of the city, was rekindled to show the citizens and the whole world the latest work of STIK, a true digital mural.
Against a yellow background, impossible not to notice, three stylized little men are holding hands, ready to face the future together.
Since the beginning of its career about twenty years ago, STIK has made these stylized figures its trademark, through which it tells the story of its community, but also represents the values of sharing and union. Precisely because of the messages of his works, from the very beginning, the artist has collaborated with various bodies and organizations. As proof of this, the mural in Piccadilly was also created for the Young Westminster Foundation, which is part of the larger Young People’s Foundations, an organization that aims to help young people with the help of public, private and voluntary organizations.
