Above: “When in Rome”

Above¬†continues his European tour with this latest piece “When in Rome.” Can you guess where he might have painted it? Although it could be seen as a bit like some of Banksy’s work (CCTV nation, the highwayman, last graffiti before motorway…), I’ll excuse Above here because the piece also reminds me of that great scene in The Life of Brian where the Roman soldiers correct the poor grammar of Brian’s massive anti-establishment graffiti.

Above says:

I found this “gladiator” in front of the Roman Colosseum where he was asking 5-Euros from tourists to take a photo with him. I bargained with him and got waaaaay more than I could of ever imagined.
