Russian contemporary artist and muralist Alexey Luka published today a couple of pics of his latest mural installation for the “New City” street art festival in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia.
The idea for the festival was to get local artists and artists from Kazan, Chelyabinsk and Moscow to create murals and installations on the walls of those who wanted to have a piece of art on them during the festival.
Cooperation between the locals and the artists was according to Luka the key to this project leading to both street art excursions and an interactive online map with all the projects and works made in of Nizhny Novgorod that later was presented to the public.
