Sometimes an enterprising artist creates their own initiative in a city and invites friends to come and paint walls that they secure – a small campaign or informal “festival, if you will.

“I invited 3 artists to the project ‘OD/BLOKOWANIE’,” says the billboard hi-jacker/adbuster named Lump here in Szczecin, Poland. The lineup includes the Polish Sepe, the Greek graffiti writer/wheat-paster/painter Dimitris Taxis, and the Spanish painter/Street Artist Zësar Bahamonte.

With a title like OD/BLOKOWANIE that translates roughly to “unblocking”, you may imagine that Sepe is opening up a part of the city with his wall.

“I focused on melting the work into colors and forms of surrounding – warm greens and browns similar to the trees around,” says Sepe. “Also I used the walls’s natural plaster to make the work appear light and not so visually oppressive.” He calls the work, “There’s No Sea…”
