Rustam QBic in Derbent

Keeper is the title of the latest mural painted in Derbent, Russia by Rustam QBic, painter of “social surrealism”. The artist wrote the following:

I would like to dedicate this work to all women. To our mothers, sisters, wives and daughters. These undisclosed heroes devote their lives to their families, family hearth and upbringing of our children. While men are at work, on business trips, hunting or travelling, women keep comfort and life at home, bring up daughters and boys – future men. They play an important role in the upbringing of future generations and form the society. Their choice is altruism in the creation of positive atmosphere of home, being inspired by their desires and environment, weave the carpet of married life. .

JR in Tehachapi

On the roof of the Tehachapi Maximum Security Prison in California, our favorite (and world’s only) photograffeur JR pasted a big image of the inmates within. The artist met with the men working on rehabilitation, as well as former inmates, and captured their portrait with a drone. The work was made using 338 strips of paper.

Artez in Novi Sad

“When the cat is away…” is the title of one of Artez’s latest murals, painted in the Serbian city of Novi Sad this November. The second part of the saying is “the mice will play!”, which is why the artist’s muse is wearing a mouse’s earls and whiskers. As always, Artez excels!
