Wall Surfaces (27 stops – Bari), the public work of David Tremlett
The English artist David Tremlett has created Wall Surfaces (27 stops - Bari), a permanent pastel work that gives new life to the city.
The British artist David Tremlett was called to redevelop the headquarters of the Soprintendenza Archeologia di Bari, the monumental complex of Santa Chiara and San Francesco della Scarpa. Wall Surfaces (27 stops – Bari), a wall drawing designed to give new life to the entire complex, consisting of two historic buildings and a more recent one that connects them, was created. David Tremlett focused on the latter, creating a work composed of 27 colored elements in soft tones representing 27 columns, the same number of times the artist has been to Bari.
In addition, Wall Surfaces (27 stops – Bari) stands out for its minimalism, a tribute that Tremlett wanted to make to Marilena Bonomo, cultural operator and gallery owner who has distinguished herself throughout her career and who died in 2014.
For the mural, entirely made of permanent pastel, were involved some students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Bari who, in addition to having had the good fortune to work side by side with the artist, also had the opportunity to experiment with his technique.
