On our recent whirlwind drive to the Fame Festival down the entire length of Italy and back, we randomly stopped in Ancona for the night. Imagine my great surprise and delight to come across a massive WK Interact installation on the town seawall on the way back to the autostrada the next morning!
Apparently the wall was done as part of the second PopUP! festival earlier this summer. Turning back to the car after having admired the WK wall, I looked over the harbor towards the Adriatic, only to discover yet another large-scale art invention: two silos beautifully adorned with a nautical theme by Blu!
Totally unexpected moments of discovery like this are what continues to fuel my enthusiasm for street art…
