Polish artist duet SEPE&CHAZME has finished a large mural for Vilnius Street Art Festival in collaboration with the Polish Institute in Vilnius. The mural is called “Corest Fity” – an allusion to the lost relation between the people and the nature. “We destroy nature at a pace so that soon we will be forced to imitate it in the cities and play the animals ourselves”, the duet sums up their work.
The building the artists worked on is interesting because of its’ side wall which is actually a firewall. When the building was built there were plans to extend the street and add on another building, however this has never been realised. In the architectural sense the building is incompleted and the mural on its sidewall is a symbolic conceptual finish.
Mobstr has made his biggest mark ever – large scale statement on a Soviet modernist building in Vilnius for Vilnius Street Art Festival. “In the future every building will be world famous for fifteen minutes” is a subtle remark towards the growing and quickly changing movement of the global street art. Anonymous artist is famous for ironic, tongue in cheek and site-specific phrases that most often than not appear in the cities illegally.
