Burn Portraits in Yekaterinburg, Russia

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 08, 2011
T-Radya creates portraits of Russian WWII soldiers by creating faces from bandages on wooden boards and then burns them to create this very discarded, aged form of street art. It doesn't make sense completely until you see the portraits put onto walls, and in this case, placed on an old WWII hospital in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 07, 2011

Kryot

Street Art // Wednesday, July 06, 2011
With limited information to reference, we came across the following words, "Kryot works spontaneously - he doesn't use sketches or preconceives concepts of images to transfer them outdoors, which would seem rather unnatural to him, as a concrete location always feeds him with enough ideas and inspiration during painting. His rather simple and sometimes small interventions at abandoned or obscure places, at entrances, crossovers or intersections besides the typical "Halls of Fame" are thus signified by their site-specific and individual character."
