Russian street artist

"Nikita Nomerz, from the western Russian city of Nizhniy Novgorod, travels around various cities in his homeland to carry out his art."
Found in The Telegraph.  Photo credit - Nikita Nomerz/Rex Features.

Update:  The gallery of his work - most of it similar in style to the embed above.


  1. This guy looks like a Banksy enthusiast. I love talented street artists. Banksy recently was in Portland OR and painted a very clean image on the side of a stark, blank, and grey wall in the "fancy" area of the NW. It was painted over within a week. They may have reconsidered if they knew how much "a Banksy" can increase property values. Ha.

  2. Yes, Banksy is one thing - painting on a stark, blank and grey wall - but to my mind, this is another thing entirely. I just hope that this edifice wasn't the site of some historic event/s in the past, and that there are many such buildings. For me, this is a momentary laugh but I find much beauty in old architecture. Humans of some color or creed made it; it needs no adornment. I hope Nikita mainly paints on grey walls!

  3. I love this! I love graffiti art--though this seems so much more--and even just plain old graffiti.

  4. His Gallery: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/culturepicturegalleries/9086702/The-Living-Wall-Russian-street-artist-Nikita-Nomerz-turns-derelict-buildings-into-faces.html?image=1

  5. Very creative work of art. I like it.
