Face the Wall

We all love street art. Real art, and not random tags on the wall spray painted with any colour they could find in the store, or nicked from their brother’s stash. The ones that you randomly spot while walking down the street and make you stop and stare.

Russian street artist Nikita Nomerz creates ‘The Living Wall’, an ongoing series that brings life to dilapidated buildings by painting strange faces on them. Adding his own distinct personal touch to anything from abandoned factories to old walls, Normerz makes an effort to paint a new face and leave his mark in every city he visits.

“I paint in the street, in public spaces, but I do not position myself as an invader of the city or a destroyer,” Nomerz told Global Street Art. “I position myself as a creator. With my street art work, I fill the urban emptiness.”

“I am inspired by the process of painting, city, people, music, movies and art by other artists. All this is interesting: it pushes the creation of art works.”
