Introducing Minsk's street art

Introducing Minsk's street art

Do you know where in the world you can find the largest mural created by one artist? You might think Rio de Janeiro but I would argue that it is Minsk, Belarus. It was created by Brazilian artist Ramon Martins at Oktjabrskaja Street and covers more than 3000 square meters. But let me start from the very beginning.

Street art in Minsk

It is quite a new thing because it only started in 2014 when the first international street art festival Vulica Brazil took place. The organiser of the festivals for three consecutive years has been the embassy of Brazil in Minsk. The latest one was held in October 2016. During this time, artists have come up with impressive pieces of street art for different parts of Minsk, largely accumulated on Oktjabrskaja (Kastrinickaja) street. You can easily spend the whole morning or afternoon admiring the work of both Brazilian and Belarusian urban artists there.

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

How to become an expert of Riga’s Art Nouveau architecture in half an hour

If there is just one reason for visiting Riga, the capital of Latvia, it is the fact that the city has the finest and largest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world, with over 800 houses built in this style. More than 438 hectares of the historical Centre of Riga are inscribed onto the UNESCO World Heritage List, recognizing its great collection of outstanding Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) architecture. Janis Krastins, a professor of architecture, said: "In Brussels you pass one or two Art Nouveau buildings when you walk down the street, but here, Art Nouveau is everywhere you look." I am Latvian and sometimes I have a feeling that Latvians are too self critical and reluctant to praise their own country. With this photo essay I would like to make my contribution to advocating the beauty of my beloved Riga. How it all started The Art Nouveau golden age coincided with the city’s rapid economic growth in early 20 century. It was more than 10 years before the disastrous First World War.
