Urban Street Art – When in Rome by ABOVE

One of our favorite street artists, ABOVE, just emailed us the latest street installation from his summer European tour! Now in Italy, he humors us with his appropriately titled piece, “When in Rome”, which features a Roman Gladiator equipped with a paint roller instead of a weapon. He even found a real-life gladiator to pose in his pics! Be sure to check out the video below to see different perspectives of the piece, which is located around the Roman Colosseum. “Ciao Alice y Eugene! Less than 2 hours ago I uploaded the newest video of my street works from the summer European tour around Europe. I appreciate your support in the past on Mymodernmet and I can only hope for your continued support with this video.” -Above
