Millo - On the edges of Jerusalem

On the road to Al-Jib appears the water tank from the historic centre of the village. This water tank isn’t like any other. On all of its sides, you see a story. A story of a little girl who is playing with the mulberry tree leaves, enjoying nature and exploration. The girl dreams of turning the paper into a butterfly that flies in the sky. Her dream becomes true and turns into reality. Artist Millo and in collaboration with artist Fuad Alyamani illustrate the need for girls who are over 11 years old, and living in Al-Jib, to play and go out in public spaces, just like boys do.

Italian artist Francesco Camillo Giorgino (Millo), paints large-scale murals that feature friendly inhabitants exploring their urban setting. He uses simple black and white lines with dashes of color, and often incorporates elements of architecture into his multi-story paintings. 

Millo was assisted by the emerging Palestinian artist Fuad Alyamani, Fuad is a visual artist and a graduate of Birzeit University. He works on a number of art projects in public places.

This artwork is part of the World Reversed project, and is co-financed by the A.M. Qattan Foundation and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
