Igor Scalisi Palminteri

“Art doesn’t solve people’s problems, but it can offer a new perspective.”

Igor Scalisi Palminteri is an artist from Palermo who never loses touch with the most vulnerable groups within the local society. His murals give voice to his own thoughts, but most importantly they move individuals and local communities through art. They constitute an open-air museum right in the neighborhoods where many people have never entered a traditional one.

Igor finds himself most aligned with Goal 10 of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. “Other than inequalities, we should strive to eliminate them” – he reflects – “because that’s what fuels all the other problems”.
