On September 2, Odesa celebrated the Day of the City. Apart from the usual festivities, unusual art installations were installed on Lanzheron beach to commemorate the occasion. The futuristic 'junk art' sculptures were made from metal and plastic, reminding of the Burning Man festival and retro sci-fi movies. Some of them are installed in the sea, gently washed by the waves, while others stay at the shore. The works of art are made by Serhii Boholiubov.

Odesa Wailing Wall

Odesa Wailing WallThe famous Odesa humor gave birth to another art object. One of the walls on Mykhailivska square now depicts an Orthodox Jewish man and states "Wailing Wall on Moldavanka". The historical area was once considered the highly-criminal part of the town, serving as home for notorious gangsters like Misha Yaponchik.

The new building-high mural

Odesa has mind-blowing murals carefully peppered around the city. Soon, a new one will join them as well. 'The Close Dreams' mural is located on the wall of one of the Artville Complex houses. According to the artist Anastasia Bilous, the mural channels the inner energy of the child who thinks that everything is possible. You can spot the new artwork on the 7th kilometer of the Ovidiopolska road.
