Mr Klevra is a Rome-based artist. He started as a writer in 1994 and as his work progressed he became more interested in street art. Mr Klevra uses the street as if it was an art gallery: each work must have the right location, the right lighting… His works are able to instantly catch attention of a passer-by with amazing details, color shades, written and hidden symbols of various kinds.
Mr Klevra is also a Christian iconography and Byzantine painting enthusiast which is reflected in his artworks.

The first mural titled “Welcome to Shanghai” is located next to Vhils’ near the Tor Marancia/Arcadia bus station. The piece is by Chinese artist Caratoes and it depicts a four-eyed Chinese Opera mask holding an origami version of the Roman she-wolf.
Tor Marancia used to be a village with little houses, shared bathrooms and small vegetable gardens. At that time this suburb was nicknamed Shanghai – allegedly because of the frequent floodings and extreme poverty.

Next mural is one of my favorite in this district – it is a piece by the Italian artist Mr. Klevra titled “Saint Mary of Shangai”. Saint Mary of Shanghai has been a fictional patron of the neighborhood back when Tor Marancia used to be a village.
