• Borowski Banksy
Who would have thought that only a hundred kilometers from Moscow, there is something that will cause me so excited. Famous Banksy if not smokes on the sidelines, then at least the curiously watching.
"Parallel city", "Borovsky portal", "open air museum" - as soon as any call this remarkable phenomenon. You arrive in one city, and immediately find yourself in two.
The two cities from different times divided between the streets of the space, crossing the walls of houses.
Ten years ago, having retired, engineer Vladimir Ovchinnikov realized that knows how to draw. And he began, "in pirate" to create on the walls.
Since then, appeared in Borovsk more than a hundred paintings, and the people were divided into two unequal camps: those who love his work ... and the city administration.
After a couple of years, a small town just came to life on the flow of tourists, having heard about the "city within a city". And there is no vandalism! For the first three years of the artist never had to repair the painting. Until then, until the local authorities intervened.
"Street art design by coloring the facades of buildings violate the protection of valuable historical environment, the existing building of the city ... Breaking the traditional nature of the environment and land use, taking into account traffic safety in order to avoid misleading visual perception street fare ..." - I wrote to the main application Borovsk architect and Vladimir Ovchinnikov continued to paint.
Local journalists have picked up the theme that the pictures can be inadvertently enter and now Moscow paper says that one taxi driver still did it. Media fanned the story in their reports have already stated that this is happening every day, and the artist does not have time to constantly touch up their works. According to legend, Vladimir Ovchinnikov even painted on one of them - "Crying sky under your feet" away from sin fence. In the photo he had painted over.
A naked boy, knocking in the closed door, symbolizing the future, too, has not been preserved - insulting the feelings of believers.
A native of Borovsk Admiral Sinyavin appeared painted on the sewage plant - is very bad. Napoleon, pictured at the former police building and insulted, according to the administration, the patriotic feelings of the inhabitants.
"Imagine that in Moscow Shilov would draw on the Kremlin wall, and no it is not an order!" - outraged the authorities.
"Assumption Street at the beginning of the century" and the frame with a fresco - so the artist nazyvetsya his paintings, with the same view today.
"There is a cinema in our town," Homeland "on it -.. Mosaic Here you ask any Borovčanin that it depicts Neither remembers Because this mosaic affirmed hudsovet get professional mediocrity But my paintings are known and.... I remember everything because I draw them from the heart, not for the artistic council. "- objected to the master administration.
Ovchinnikov begin to fine and to accuse the mayor of the town of Borovsk and Luzhkov are depicted near the garbage. After a few days in their place appeared the orange square. In response, the artist has restored a small part of the picture and pririsoval unknown vandal hand tightly clutching a paint roller.
The monumental work - "Globe Borovsk".
Anna M., actually living in this house, goes to fetch water.
According to legend, when to build railways, local merchants chipped and given a large bribe, so she walked past the city. To everything here was as quiet as before, so nothing has changed. The history of the artist's very similar to the legend. Vladimir Ovchinnikov stopped drawing on public buildings, private benefit enough, the administration is not taking action.
Arriving in the city, park the car on the Communist street, d. 1. There is "Globe" and a map of the frescoes. Take a picture of it on the phone and start a fun adventure.
