MOSCOW, RUSSIA

russia may not be the first place you think of when you’re looking for places to see epic graffiti, but it should be on your list! in more recent years, western culture has greatly influenced the russian street art scene, encouraging more urban art in the outskirts of moscow. the change came about four years ago, when the city realized the overwhelming grey dullness of its suburban neighborhoods and made it a mission to add color to the city.

check out some of the murals below:
