The murals of Jorit
𝙂𝙚𝙣𝙣𝙮, 𝙂𝙖𝙚𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙤, 𝙎𝙖𝙡𝙫𝙖𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙚 𝘾𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙚 (walking along a colorful Neapolitan Abbey Road) introduce you to the topic of this week’s column: the 𝗦𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝗔𝗿𝘁 of the artist jorit! As you know, our Salvatore Esposito is the first promoter of Neapolitan culture in all its facets!
The 𝗠𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗹𝗲𝘀 𝗱𝗶 𝗝𝗼𝗿𝗶𝘁 are in fact admired all over the world for their ability to amaze with their majesty and realism, making simple walls real masterpieces! To transform once invisible areas and neighborhoods into places that intrigue and fascinate!
A few pills about jorit and his art: Jorit decided to 𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙧𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙧𝙚 literally on his face the signs of “𝘴𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘯𝘪𝘧𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘻𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘦”, 𝙪𝙣 𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙗𝙖𝙡𝙚 𝙖𝙛𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙣𝙤, the same signs used by the artist on his portraits. The artist’s “signature” is hidden in one of the eyes of the 𝙋𝙞𝙗𝙚 𝙙𝙚 𝙊𝙧𝙤, visible only at sunrise and sunset when the sunlight reflects on the mural. Maradona himself thanked Jorit by posting a photo of the mural on his Facebook profile.
Not only Naples: his beautiful graffiti are also visible in 𝘾𝙞𝙣𝙖, 𝘽𝙤𝙡𝙞𝙫𝙞𝙖, 𝘽𝙧𝙖𝙨𝙞𝙡𝙚, 𝙍𝙪𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙖, 𝘼𝙛𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙖 𝙚 𝙐𝙨𝙖. Where to see Jorit’s murals (to name a few): San Gennaro, in the “Forcella” district Maradona, in San Giovanni a Teduccio Edoardo De Filippo, on the shutters of the San Ferdinando Theater Pasolini, in the heart of Scampia
