Communist architecture is also known as ‘brutalist architecture’, to most people it looks pretty bland and unimaginative, however it seems that it is a awesome canvas for street-art. Ukrainians have recognized this potential and invited Guido Van Helten, a famous street artists to bring some color to their neighborhoods. Guido is now in Eastern Europe and he finished this piece somewhere on the streets of Kiev in Ukraine. Coming from Australia he had a problem with severe Eastern European cold weather but it didn’t stop him from working on this mega-long building to create this photo-realistic portrait of a young woman and what looks like to a traditional Eastern European jacket ornamented with beautiful red patterns. Amazing!
