helping bring the late Diego Maradona back to life, one mosaic tile at a time.
The visual artist, part of a group called Comando Maradona, unveiled on Thursday (Feb 25) a colorful mural of the Argentine player and legend who died on Nov 25 last year, sparking an outpouring of grief from Buenos Aires to Naples, Italy.
The work, in front of the Argentinos Juniors stadium where Maradona played the early years of his career, is part of a series of mosaics the group has produced for the last three months, to honour the day of his death.
"We are transforming our pain into a mural in a public space," López Lauch, who makes up the group with Paula Soto and Gabriela Pereyra, told Reuters.
The mosaics, made up of small tiles to ensure they are durable and easy to fix in case of vandalism, show Maradona in a jersey of one of the teams he played for, looking at the horizon.
Residents from the community are invited to add the final pieces to the mosaics, a reflection of how Maradona was a national hero despite well-documented issues of addiction.
