The Street Art Krasnoyarsk project is launched for the second time here in Krasnoyarsk — cubes with graffiti works are already decorating the left-bank embankment.


The 2.5-meter wooden cubes installed on the shore started being painted by both Krasnoyarsk masters and masters from all over the country - two dozen street artists from various cities came to Krasnoyarsk especially for this purpose: Rostov-on-Don, Kemerovo, Yekaterinburg, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk. Local passersby had the opportunity to watch them work in real time.

This street gallery officially opened on the 10th of July: on the embankment, break-dance champions of Siberia and the Far East team White Masters, the Trio group, as well as various DJs performed at the opening ceremony. Since the cubes are equipped with beautiful illumination, the art is available for anyone to enjoy even in the evening.


— In my opinion, this is a very important project. It reconciles Krasnoyarsk residents, for whom such a street format is closer to vandalism and hooliganism than to art, with the fact that this genre has a place in the city. Sometimes it's really beautiful, - said the Minister of Culture of the Krasnoyarsk Region Arkady Zinov.
