The old capital of Poland isn’t any more fanatical about the Catholic Church than the rest of the country but this new piece is sure to cause some good old healthy controversy. Thanks to sosm.pl. More at http://www.purething.pl/?page_id=9 .
I always like going back to Cracow. It’s vibrant, multicultural and has a strong creative vibe. The art scene here however is a bit of a contradiction. The city is famous for its fine art academy and numerous galleries however street art has very little relevance. Most artist want to create large legal pieces but getting permission from local councils is near to impossible. The authorities here are conservative and don’t accept any rationale regarding the need to allow street art to flourish.
