Yekaterinburg Street Art
by Dmitry Teckel
It is impossible to perceive a city without understanding its inhabitants, and it is equally hard to fully grasp a person without knowing where they come from. In Yekaterinburg, this everyday symbiosis of people and place resulted in a powerful movement that washed away the difference between art and reality. Known as a Russian capital of street art, the city is an open gallery, welcoming anyone, be it local guerilla art groups, internationally known professionals or just a passer-by with a marker.
