Ukrainian Banksy?


We left Russia and are spending a few days in Ukraine, in the Khmelnitsky region. It has been 18 years since we were last here and we were trying to walk a part of the city and see how much things had changed. Walking along one of the main streets, we came across this graffiti on one of the buildings. Since I did a post on Banksy earlier this year, it seemed a fun connection.

I have no idea of the true artist. I did find a reference on the intranet to a Ukrainian Banksy. Perhaps it was him, but usually there is some kind of political statement attached to the graffiti. For more examples of Banksy art, click here. In the meantime, I'll be looking for more street art.

  1. I love taking photos of graffitti in places I visit, not as much in my home town!
