Poland – Polish street artist Natalie Rak, also known just as Rak, was born in 1986. She got famous for her colorful paint murals on the sides of Polish buildings. She started her career with canvas painting but later she switched to street art and never looked back. She single handedly started to change how Poland looks and she is making her country a prettier place to live each day. Her works have spread across the world so she participated in “Art Battles” in New York City and turned unused space into an exhibition of street art.

Most of her works are breath-taking and if you are interested in more you can follow her over her blog or social media: Natalia Rak (Facebook, Instagram)

“Butterfly Queen ” process part. My main inspiration for that wall was the structure of the butterfly wings. I didn’t know that there will be a concrete brick. At the beginning we wanted to paint the pattern using just brushes, showing the texture by short lines but that didn’t look good so we decided to go with the pixels. This wall took us 7 days in weather which change with every hour #nataliarak #nataliarakart @bezt_etam #mural #streetart #sweden

“Legend about Giants” (2013) painted on festival “Folk on the Street” organized by WOAK (Regional center of cultural animation) When I started drawing a sketch I had to consider few elements of the area, for example there are windows and growing tree which we can’t cut. The organizators give me texts about polish legends from that region. I specially liked legends about giants. First they destroy world around them but later they start to copy human behavior and started taking care of the nature. I hit on an idea how including the tree. I think this mural is good start to take up green areas development. Cities should have as many trees as possible. When I started I had CMYK in acrylics and more that 100 cans. I always use acrylic paints on background and then I make detail with using spray cans. The sketch taken me 4 hours. I worked ten hours per day. After seven days this mural was finished. I had rain each day of work but I was very optimistic and full of hope.
