Name of the Street Art piece that has modified the urban space: Precariously
Location : Precariously
Year : April 2020
1- If you had to choose a Street Art piece that you created, as a transformation of the urban space, which one would you choose? How does this Street Art piece denote urban space metamorphosis?
I choose my wall in the city centre of Kiev. It’s a school wall, so i wanted to bring joy to illustrate the happiness of children. This is an order by the french Institut during a festival called the french spring. My will was to represent the political fragility. I tried to play with the Soviet architecture and my form work. Its a legal work.
When im painting, i like the interaction with the children. For me, the meeting between the artist and the citizen is essential. But my project is create before my intervention.
I work with the colors of the local architecture and my goal is that people feel in osmosis between the wall and their environnement.
I created a lot of ephemeral painting but now i aspire that my art stays in time.
My work is graphic and geometric, i like that it can adapt to architectural lines.
Sometimes, the quality of wall is poor, so it can be really hard to paint or i decided to play with the textures of the wall when it’s possible. In the future, i would like a large partipatory project to include the inhabitants to modify their urban spaces.
