A new urban art entering Poltava

January 20, 2018 A few years ago this kind of pop art was a head ache for Poltava City Council and its municipal services. They were doing their best to erase all graffiti everywhere. It took them some time to latch on the message sending by this new kind of pop art. 

Many things have been changed since that time and by nows graffiti has turned into integral part of our urban life. That is why I decided to bring to your attention a few examples of Poltava graffiti. May be you’ll find them of some interest.

Reference: Graffiti are writing or drawings that have been scribbled, scratched, or painted illicitly on a wall or other surface, often within public view. Graffiti range from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and they have existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, and the Roman Empire.
