Sophia Loren & Foxy Brown in Foxy Loren, a Miami mural by American artist Pete Kirill.
Foxy Loren is the last project by artist Pete Kirill. A new mural which depicts 1950’s Italian actress Sophia Loren as hip-hop diva Foxy Brown. The mural was completed on June 10, 2014. What do you think? The contrast of colors, the sensuality of the figure, the seductive look … A time that returns with a new color to the walls of Miami now.
Congratulations, Pete for this new work. It rocks!
