This delicate mural is the work of Russian artist Rustam Qbic and was painted for the New City Festival celebrated in the city of Nizhny Novgorod.
‘Blossom’ as the mural was titled cover the entire side of a 9 storey building and depicts three individuals whose heads seem to literally “bloom” while reading books. The mural focuses as you may guess on the importance of education and knowledge in todays society.
The mural is located on UL. Chernyakhovsky 9A, Nizhny Novgorod.
