Several Polish artists have started transforming the sides of houses and apartment blocks into enormous murals. This vibrant street art has recently received a lot of attention – as well as the artists themselves. They have been recoginsed by international media, such as CNN.
One of the works presented most recently is a beautiful painting by Natalia Rak. This young, aspiring Polish artist, along with other passionate artists, was granted permission from the local municipality to paint buildings without being fined or arrested.
