Over 60 walls have been decorated with impressive murals in recent years by international street artists and many more are announced to be painted in 2017. Mural fever has arrived to Kyiv and is here to stay. In order to keep track of all the interesting pieces of street art in Ukraine’s capital Roman Sosnovsky, young IT developer from Kyiv, has created a special mobile application that shows over 100 existing murals.
Picturesque Ukrainian landscapes, lovely kids, historic figures and even patriotic scenes from outer space – dozens of colorful murals have sprung up in Ukrainian capital after the Revolution of Dignity. Over the last two years painters not only from Ukraine, but also from Spain, Argentina, Germany, Great Britain, Portugal, and even from Australia came to Kyiv to bring in some color to the city's streets.
