‘Fine Graff Art’ from Eastern Europe’s heart in Saint Petersburg. The internationally renowned Bulgarian street and fine artist Nasimo recently visited ‘Artplay‘ center in St. Petersburg to paint a mural by invitation of the ‘Fortunate People’ team.Over the course of 7 days the artist created a mural that covers the largest inner wall at the ‘Artplay‘ complex to celebrate its transition from a nuclear equipment factory into a social hub for design, art and culture.
The artwork depicts a beautiful girl’s face in a state of bliss with a white dove alongside her, symbolic of love and peace.The event organizers share that the main goal of the artistic collaboration is to utilize the power of art to spread the idea of love and unity worldwide.
Started spraying Aerosol paint on the street walls right after the the fall of the communist regime in the early 90’s, Nasimo is considered to be one of the pioneers of Eastern European graffiti art culture, as well as one of the most recognizable street and fine artists from the Balkans. His monumental murals can be seen in many countries around the world, sometimes spanning across 10-floor buildings.
Nasimo shares that he was very excited about his first visit to Saint Petersburg and he is already planning to bring his most recent exhibition ‘Mind Souldiers’ to the city by the beginning of next year.
