Living Walls is a street art project initiated by artist Nikita Nomerz , from the western Russian city of Nizhniy Novgorod. According to Twisted Sifter, the graffiti and street artist seeks decaying buildings and paints them into living characters: â€œI started in school with classic hip hop graffiti but became more interested in street art and began all sorts of experiments. Now basically I like to play with space and objects. I am inspired by the place itself. I love watching the city and finding an interesting point. Usually I do not spend so much time to create one work, sometimes less than an hour. But it all depends on the size of the object and my ideas.â€ His works are fun, fresh and full of personality. I definitely would not mind coming across one of these characters in my home town.
