M-City is an very detailed stencil series created by the Polish artist Mariusz Waras. The main subject of his murals is the city landscape. His works can be seen in many cities including Warsaw, Berlin, Paris, Budapest, Rio de Janeiro, London, Prague and, as you probably already guessed, Bucharest. Waras was invited to Bucharest by the Polish Cultural Center for the “Night of the Cultural Centers”. On this occasion he made two murals, one at the Polish Center (which I didn’t see yet) and the one in today’s photo at the Writer’s Union on Calea Victoriei. His murals are formed from about 100 individual components, representing buildings, infrastructure elements, people etc. which are always placed in a different combination creating a unique mural. You can find more about m-city here. I can’t say exactly why but I didn’t take a picture of the whole ensemble. Instead I took three pictures that put together create the whole graffiti. I guess that’s how inspiration guided me at that moment 🙂 That’s why I decided to post all three pictures, to give you a clearer idea of the entire work.

  1. I like the idea of a B&W; mural which is a bit trompe-l'œil. He's done a lot of work around, the closest one is in Florence: I'll try to see it next time I go there.

  2. This is great! Really cool!
    Thank you for the nice comment on my blog.

  3. These are great! Very original. Most graffiti and wall art adds blazing colour to grey concrete. The lack of colour here is fascinating.

  4. Wow, impressive! This is street art at its best! m-city is really talented and innovative.

  5. Wow, great, M-city in Bucharest. This guy is a genius.
