  • Task:
    to turn a traditional vandalism spot into a creative location.

    The solution developed at the studio protects the colonnade of the Vorontsov Palace from attacks by illegal street artists. One of the columns is designated for graffiti and tags. It is painted with façade paint and covered with a special solution that allows to easily bring it back to the original state.

    The next day the object is ready to suffer for art again

    Introduction of officially approved art locations eliminates the desire to corrupt nearby structures. Thus, by using only one façade column, the artists will take the load off others. Drawings made by water-based markers can be erased with a sponge, while images created with permanent paints can be removed using a thinner which will not damage the coating.

    Height of the protected part of the column takes into account even the tallest artists
    Color of the paint matches the color of the stone which means the protected column doesn’t stand out

    Creative space

    Odessa painters, illustrators and graffiti artists are invited to create the first drawings. To apply, prepare a sketch up to 1000 pixels wide and send a JPEG image to jull@artlebedev.ru.
