Based on a photograph taken during a walk in the forest, this fresco is very special in that it depicts one of the artists who took part in the 9th edition of the VAF, namely Alex Senna.

Chosen for the striking features of his face, the character makes his way through the dense vegetation of the nearby forest.

“A painting that mixes aesthetics and conceptualization based on political, feminist and decolonialist discourses”.

Duo Amazonas, a duo of two young artists, Natalia Andreoli (Argentina, 1992) and Lina Castellanos (Colombia, 1990), who have worked together since 2017.

Andreoli trained in scenography at the National University of Arts in Buenos Aires, as well as training in different artists’ studios such as Paula Bonet and Lean Frizzera.

Lina Castellanos has an academic background in visual arts from the Universidad Javeriana de Bogotá, with a specialization in scenography at the Universidad Nacional de Artes de Buenos Aires, and a master’s degree in gender studies from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

With an artistic writing that mixes aesthetics and conceptualization based on feminist and decolonial political discourses, they have created murals in many countries such as Spain, Argentina, Portugal, Greece, Uruguay and Greece, among others.











Fabio Petani was born in Pinerolo in 1987. After graduating in science, he went on to complete a Master’s degree in Cultural Heritage (Faculty of Humanities) at the University of Turin, with a thesis on urban art and street culture from its origins to the present day.

This type of research brought him closer to the Turin art scene. He soon became a member of the cultural association Il Cerchio E Le Gocce (which has been particularly active on the Turin art scene since 2001).

His works are characterized by a disordered harmony of lines, shapes and volumes, which complement each other through the use of weak, harmonious colors, mixed with elements of rupture.

His research analyses the chemical and molecular aspects of objects, giving rise to a lengthy process of reconstructing the elements of the periodic table.

The result is an increasingly detailed production that reveals a constantly evolving organic complexity. Each chemical element, like each plant, is in some way linked to the environment, the space or the context in which the wall is created.

The importance of the link between the work and the context is also evoked in his work on wood, paper and other alternative materials.
