Street Art At Its Best In Poland : Escif’s On/Off Switch Mural
Walking around our streets, we can see how those choosing to put their creativity out there decided to express and paint how they see the world around us. During Poland’s Katowice Street Art Festival that took place between 20-29 April 2012, a handful of street artists joined forces to recreate the city’s face. One in particular chose to compose a huge On/Off Switch Mural on the side of an apartment building. Valencia-based street artist Escif captures social attention with his prominent works. His On/Off Switch Mural set on the streets so that passers-by can relate to it in size, colors (or the lack of colors) and the surrounding urban landscape creates an impressive first impression. Good thing we spotted the project on MyModernMet – it has the power to make us think beyond the concept and see the formerly heavy industry city being transformed not only by architecture and developments, but also by art.
