Night gallery of street art #1

Night street-art gallery

Newsagents’ kiosks are favoured surfaces among graffiti-bombers, who create their pictures illegally in the urban space. New graffiti cover the elder and after some time kiosks turn out to be all over drawn – this isn’t the best improvement of the urban environment.

We tried to change graffiti’s bad influence and transformed it to a benefit. When the city falls asleep, the „Rospechat“ kiosks turn to unique art-objects, creating a street-art gallery opened for everyone in the urban environment.

When we found this kiosk, it was beaten black-and-blue because it had been covered with tags. Every tag or throw-up is a part of the urban space, though.

Artist decided not to paint out tags, but to make them an element of his street-art object, adding over the existing picture a white city silhouette, through which you can distinguish the story of buildings and the old kiosk’s keeper.

Made for the Stenograffia Festival.
