197. HEIL / Moscow, Russia

ruzia// Heil  / Moscu, Russia

I was invited to paint a façade in Moscow for an event called “the best city on the Earth”…. Ups!! Sounds like Moscow government need to do some positive propaganda to recover certain credibility and Street Art is always a good choice. I´m totally agree!

After one denied sketch that “aparently” occupied bigger space than available at the wall, I tryed with a friendlier idea: a big hand making a big salute.

The idea was approved in three diferent levels (Curators, Culture Departement and Government), so I was so happy that so many people liked the drawing.

The façade was located in a privileged site ( Звонарский переулок, Moscow, Rusia), in the main centre of Moscow,  t 50 meters from a FSB building (ex-KGB); Just in front of Sanduny Banya, the most famous bathhouse in the city, where rich people go to relax, naked and in good company,  share some vodka and caviar with friends. That´s a perfect location to draw this big hand and say Hello!
