stairwell56This is no art. This is a stairwell in a typical multilevel apartment building somewhere in Russia. The cow is optional, perhaps even photo-shopped.

I’d say, this one is more typical, however dull.

Artist Boris Chernichenko, originally from Astrachan, decided to liven up the stairway  and landings of the Moscow apartment building where he lives in one of the flats. He worked nights, turning the walls into paintings of charming birch groves, blue expanse of the river, the monastery…







Charming, isn’t it?  The artist has done it on his own time, for the benefit and enjoyment of his neighbors; his artwork wasn’t either commissioned or monetarily rewarded.
