A photoblog with pictures I've taken of graffiti and street art in Moscow (and anywhere else I happen to travel).

SPB Stencils

"Trish" and St. Encil," from last summer in the Northern Capital.


From a graffiti feature in a free newspaper published in Moscow called "Aktsiia" - they don't seem to be online, so I decided to bring some of their photos to a wider audience. Just to be clear, these are not my pictures. These are from last summer. Click to expand.

More on Mambo / Bow

I'm finally posting some draft posts that have been languishing in Blogger for nearly a year. This one was originally intended as a follow-up to my initial post on Mambo. I'm sure this graf is all dated by now, and probably some of it has been painted over...

All of these photos are from 2005.

"Dead" graffiti

These were all painted over (or, "abated," I guess, in industry jargon) when I went back to photograph them again a month or two later. Hence the title of the post. All photos from 2005.

Tashkent Graffiti

Some relatively unimpressive graf from Tashkent, photographed during the week of July 20-27 of last year. The first inscription is promoting an Uzbek hip-hop site with some better examples of the local graffiti.
