“Flora of Ukraine” by Interesni Kazki, The Wynwood Walls Project, Miami, 2011.
While I’ve never considered myself to an expert on the subject of graffiti art, or even a huge fan of it for that matter, I’ve been fascinated with the Ukrainian graffiti art duo Interesni Kazki (Interesting Fairytales) since I stumbled upon their work on a building near the Kiev Pechersk Lavra grounds. In the typically drab country of Ukraine, it’s hard not to notice their work when you stumble upon it. The vibrant and colorful surrealist pieces are typically large and emblazoned on the side of a building. After finding that first one, I made it a personally mission of mine to track down as many as I could while running around Kiev on errands or while killing time with friends.
But Interesni Kazki isn’t just local; the guys have done pieces in India, Spain, Slovakia as well as many other places. Recently they visited the states to work on a project in Miami (pictured above) and exhibit their art at a gallery in Los Angeles.
If you like what you see here, and you have some time to kill, I highly recommend checking out the Interesni Kazki blog.
