PAINTING YOUR TOWN

design squish blog

Russian amateur folk artist Vladimir Ovchinnikov have been painting his town Borovsk, population of 12,000, a place of cottages slouching on grassy slopes, with murals.   I think this is a great idea to use city walls instead of canvas. I would rather see folk art on buildings than bare brick walls.
