Several months later, a certain intrepid companion and I set off to explore.
There were lots of strangely cool things.
And some cool strange things.
And some rather creepy images.
These artists not only learned to draw but also picked up some English somewhere. Almost all of the tags and descriptions were in English.
With a few exceptions-
This wasn't the only summertime stumble across unusual street art.
A horse suddenly appeared on Radnarkomivs'ka street.
A patchwork quilt of color adorned a wall on Esenina Street.
I've been walking past this on the way to work.
Darth Vadar made his debut near an elementary school.
Shevchenko gazed thoughtfully into the distance.
A babushka threw her hands up in shock over a tipped vase.
Odin discovered this tagging hall-of-fame.
Ray Charles lit up the side of someone's garage.
On the other side of town, a terrifyingly-gigantic atom ate up the side of an apartment building.
A tank promoted peace, not war.
And these random framed stickers spruced up what would otherwise have been nondescript gray walls.
The streets of this city definitely present an always-changing smorgasbord of art! It's nice to see something unexpected, something that makes the viewer pause and spend a moment in reflection, a moment of thoughtfulness during a hectic day.
Which one is your favorite? Do you consider all of them to be art?
