Russian painted houses 1

Really strange fashion of painting psychedelic things on the walls of houses deep in Moscow suburbs seems to progress. This one is most impressive – just imagine all those common low-class people leaving inside those houses doing their everyday things like washing stuff or drinking or eating and watching TV, but now they don’t do all this things inside dull gray boxes of concrete but inside something that looks like just stepped out from Japanese animation..

    Why is everything posted here automatically “strange”? In fact, some of these wall paintings look really cool!

  4. Richard S. says:

    Kind of resembles the Beatles Apple studios….

  5. Visitor says:

    Who decides what to paint? Do residents get to choose from sketches of ideas made by the artists, or do they just come home one day to find people painting their building?

  6. John from Kansas says:

    Very nice graphic design.

  7. Pros says:

          • Zafarad says:

            We are still here guys,please wait for our sleeping!!!!!!

          • Boris Abramov says:

            Come on you can tell us more then that ;)

            Ok, I will start our relationship by telling something about myself. I am a 23 year old student from London and I am now single :( Will you be my virtual girlfriend? I can dance striptease on your webcam ;)

            Where about in Wales do you live? What do you do? How old are you?

            • chicken says:

              Lol No I cannot be your virtual Girlfriend, and I have a boyfriend..being single has good points though does it not? I am 27, I live in Cardiff and I study lots at the moment in preperation to become a therapist of many kinds :)

              • Boris Abramov says:

                “and I have a boyfriend” – I don’t mind, the more the merrier :)

                “being single has good points though does it not?” No :( I miss being spanked and humiliated. Do you think I might need a therapist? ;)

                • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says:

                  You miss being spanked and humiliated? Come to Tehran. We will visit, have some tea and soft pastries and talk. Who knows? Maybe I can help you.

                  Chicken may come along too, if she wishes.

                  • chicken says:

                    Tea and soft pastries? IM THERE !

                    Spanking is not humiliating..its just to keep someone in line thats all :D I think you can have therapy about absolutely anything, it does not have to be something that one should need, more something that one would be interested to have maybe

                • Tura says:

                  There must be better and cheaper ways to get spanked and humiliated – I hear therapists charge a lot ;)

  11. Joy says:

    These are nice works of art. I wish there is also like that here in Iloilo.

  12. max says:

    Most of these are Pop-Art / Cultural paintings, though I myself have never seen such a thing on buildings.

  13. chaosgone says:

    That’s cool! What a nice way to dress up an old building.

  14. mr.fit says:

  24. lude nunes says:

    Fascinating. Makes me think how Russians must be somewhat confused with all the changes going on in their country. There are people looking for an identity…

  25. Chupachupser says:

    Wow, that’s such a cool idea!! I wish they did it to all the depressing, old “hrushevki” all over Russia.

  26. I saw an apartment in Beirut decorated with bullet holes and bomb craters. Very realistic, but nobody thanked the “artists”.
