WIDE OPEN WALL SACRAMENTO (US)
Pixelpancho painted this wall in Sacramento, the capital of California, during Wide Open Walls Art Festival. The Californian Princess is a female robot: she could remaind you the famous Princess Leila of Star Wars but, instead, she’s the representation of the artist’s disappointment. California is popular, it’s the quintessence of pop. It’s famous all over the world for its cinema industry, its music, its sense of freedom. But, behind this mask of freedom and innovation, it has a dark side.
Pixelpancho thought he was facing an advanced country, the most advanced of the planet, but he discovered it has the same problems you can see everywhere. Under the face of the princess you can see the marijuana, which is now legal but so taxed that the black market has not stopped: it’s a non-sense. The non-sense of a glamour country, which hides its corruption.
