Murals, in the past, criticized for vandalizing the “natural” beauty of cities, start to gain high popularity and fame. Thanks to incredible artists such as Banksy, murals start to be appreciated.

Poland is one of those countries that are proud of their street art, finally transforming grey towns into colorful and playful ones. Even CNN made a reportage about it called “Bigger than Banksy: Polish street art goes large”.

Here are four of Poland’s prettiest murals:

 

3D Mural in Poznan

The mural was initiated by Gerald Cofta, a local councilman, and executed by the Artistic-Educational Foundation Puenta.

It was inspired by photographs from the 1920s and painted to remember and celebrate the historical market district Srodka. It is called “A Srodka Tale with Trumpeter on the Roof and a Cat in the Background”.

Blu’s Mural in Warsaw

The mural was painted by a world-famous artist Blu. It’s located on “Under the Sailboat” apartment building in Warsaw. In the past, it was almost destroyed due to its political content.

The mural’s building was one the few that didn’t get totally destroyed during the World War II. In his work, Blu tried to reflect the history of the city as well as the topic of war itself. Painting soldiers as marionettes driven by money was so controversial that Warsaw city ordered another artist to take over the space. Fortunately, the public opposed.

Gallery Urban Forms in Lodz

Gallery Urban Forms started a project in Lodz.  The goal was to create a permanent street art exhibition.

At the moment the gallery consists of 30 large format murals in the city center of Lodz. The paintings were, and still are, executed by various international artists. The one on the photograph was done by Aryz and Os Gemeos, a Brazilian-Spanish art trio.

Ding Dong Dumb in Krakow

Previously mentioned artist Blu created murals in multiple Polish cities, not only in Warsaw. Another one is in Krakow and was created for the Krakow ArtBoom Festival.

Ding Dong Dumb shows a pope preaching to a carefully listening (Polish) crowd through a huge megaphone. It illustrates a church bell. The aim was to show how big is the influence of the Catholic Church on the (Polish) society.
