MP5 is an Italian artist, muralist and illustrator widely known for her incisive black and white style.
The mural consists of three parts: the main figure stands out majestically on the main facade of the building and the two other figures have been painted on the two front walls in the adjacent courtyard. If you walk along the street you will therefore see the large figure portraying the Greek myth of Ganymede, a shepherd holding on tight to an eagle on his shoulders. Ganymede casts a firm and proud gaze at passers-by. In the courtyard there are the other characters linked to the story of the myth: the sheepdog and two heads of cattle. The style of the mural is very powerful and represen- tative of the artist: the black and white forms, the contrast and the references to underground comics.
