This is the latest mural I made for the third edition of ArtWalk festival in Patras, Greece. It is painted on Western Greece’s Region Building and it is illustrating a scene of the Centauromachy, where Theseus is overcoming the centaur Eurytion in order to save Hippodamia.
This classical theme in greek mythology was decorating the Parthenon of the Acropolis and according to some scholars, represents the victory of civilization against barbarity. Having this in mind, throughout the proccess, I used Niccolo Machiavelli’s quote as a grid for the sketch:
“There are two ways of contesting. The one by the law, the other by force; the first method is proper to men, the second to beasts.”

Many thanks to the whole team of “ArtinProgress” for organizing such a flawless festival -the best right now in Greece- that makes a huge positive impact in the people of the city.
