A MYSTERIOUS note and a makeshift mural masterpiece has left locals scratching their heads after a targeted art attack on Marius St.
The Bean and Barista cafe owner Nico Andrigo came to work in the early hours of Monday morning to find an unsolicited nod to his Italian homeland plastered on an outside wall.
The mural replicates ‘The Creation of Adam’ by Michelangelo, with a distinctive pink takeaway coffee cup in God’s hand.
Mr Andrigo, a curator of caffeine and cuppas, rather than arts and crafts, served up his critique of the work.
“I’m very, very happy, it’s fantastic,” he said.
“It’s spot on actually, it’s like the Sistine Chapel.”
With no name or number left behind, Mr Andrigo wants to get in touch with the artist.
“Please come in,” he said.
“I’ll give you a coffee and shake your hand and you can show me how to draw.”
He wants to keep artwork and stick to the ceiling inside his cafe like Michelangelo’s fresco work in the Sistine Chapel.
