— As in the case of Krasnodar I can say that graffiti and street art are modern and significant trend, phenomenon in the life of our city, it has great prospects here. It is very important that such paintings on the walls of buildings create not only a special atmosphere but also provide the prerequisites for surrounding area to be cleaned up and beautified, — Vladimir Evlanov said.

— Earlier the wall looked very unattractive. It was sloppy, decayed and required reconditioning. There could be some kind of commercial advertisement, nevertheless now we see a true work of art, uncommon and futuristic. Over these days many people came to look at the process of work, told friends about it and took photos on its background, — Taisia Spichka said.
Georgy Kurinov told about an idea put in this phantasmagoric picture.
— The work is devoted to fatherhood. In my painting “Father” I decided just to try to look at the theme globally. Image of father is represented in atmosphere of nature, the forest patron and creator of all. The main point comes down to the fact that the greatest mystery is the creation and maintenance of a new life, bearing of a new soul. Preparation and development of an idea have been started as early as in winter. I was pondering over it, drawing in variants and looking for a proper place. By now the idea has turned into reality and I’m ready for a new one.

According to Sergey Kilin the idea now is accepted at the regional level. Youth commissions will work in every municipality of Krasnodar Region. They will accept applications from young artist-writers to create street-art pictures. Georgy Kurinov will become art-director of this regional project.
