Post pobrano z: This Moscow Artist Creates Graffiti of Orthodox Icons
Most of the time, street art is associated with urban lettering and hip-hop drawing styles that cover the walls of most cities around the world. However, some artists break these visual codes and surprise us with unusual graffitis.
Alexandre Tsypkov, a Moscow-based Russian painter, is one of these artists. As a traditional icon painter, he takes his art to the streets and likes to create on the walls that graffiti artists use. He takes his icon-painting skills beyond his usual limits and draws gigantic faces of Saints or Jesus himself.
