There are already 49 murals in the integrated monumental art gallery in Zaspa, Gdańsk! With the 6th edition of the Monumental Art Festival, new pieces were created: poetic mural by Opiemme from Italy, neon fantastic world painted on a 36-meter wall by Zosen Bandido from Spain, retro and futuristic mural by Gualicho from Argentina, and a project by Maciej Salamon from Poland who depicts different layers of the ‘Road to Happiness’ which has been chosen by the City Culture Institute for the leading motif of the festival this year. We present you four new pieces in the collection and their authors.
Zaspa is one of the biggest clusters of blocks of flats in Poland. Built in the 70’s, the district was meant to embody the modernist vision of the perfect urban organism. It was located on vast grounds of former airfield near the sea shore, where nothing seemed to limit the architects’ creativity. Today, the same freedom is granted the artists, who will transform large surfaces on the sides of blocks of flats into monumental paintings – the murals.
