people in the abstract

Lodz Poland is full of murals. It’s the kind of city where Tourist Information gives out maps showing the location of more than 130 murals, most of which are in walking distance (but there are trams too if you prefer). Three of those 130 are here in this blog post.

First, an upside down wiggly line couple by Klone Yourself (aka Igor Revelis) titled “Midnight Lovers”. Painted in 2017.

Another large mural in Lodz featuring abstracted human forms is this sort of art deco style painting.

The third is this mural called “Gentrification” by Tone aka Robert Proch (d. 2019). It was painted in 2013.

striped klones

Klone Yourself mural, from the 2016 Montreal MuralFest, features two black and white striped upside down human-like figures

below: The figures take up the whole of the side of the house (4 storeys?) and are marvelously placed.  Their feet are against the roof and the windows of the building are their faces.  One figure is resting a hand on the corner of a window.

Klone Yourself is a Ukrainian artist who lives in Tel Aviv Israel.
