The Graffiti Grannys

Russian graffiti grannys

“How long should we tolerate those tasteless paintings they call ‘graffiti’? After asking this question myself twice I said – we shouldn’t any more!” So says Anastasia, the leader of SSAE – Samarian Street Art Elders. “We decided to show what real graffiti should look like so that our children could adapt good tastes from an early age”.

And so be it – this small town near Samara cCity, Russia began to change with the help of this SSAE team. They decided to give street art a “granny” twist. “We also put nice poetry on walls, it helps!”

Now the walls of houses and lobbies as well as out door spaces such as playgrounds, are all covered by  “Granny Graffiti” and it seems the old graffiti artists have run scared.
