Two buildings for socially endangered residents in San Giovanni and Teduccio in Naples are now decorated with the impressive murals.

The controversial artist was arrested last week in Israel for painting a portrait of a 17 year-old Palestinian activists Ahed Tamimi.

The decision to pain Che Guevara came easily.

He said that the South American revolutionary was "like a lighthouse, a leading force for all my life decisions."

The residents, meanwhile, are enthusiastic about he mural, and say it represents encouragement to stand up to any social or political problem.
