Reflecting On Siberian Graffiti in Irkutsk
Siberian Graffiti in Irkurtsk
You may not think of graffiti when you think of Siberia but the art form is alive and well.
A viewing of the local artists’ handwork in Irkutsk, near Lake Baikal and one of the largest cities in Siberia, will have you convinced. You can take in the regional influence in the wall art where Lake Baikal claims over 250 indigenous animal species.
If you are lucky enough to hit the street scene after a rainfall you will get double the experience. If you duck low the perspective is larger than life. Bright tones, artistic brush, Russian influence, eastern style, Siberian masterpiece.
Wander the nearly vacant streets of the inner city and absorb the eastern Russian remoteness, smattered with Soviet influence.
