The Whimsical Street Art of Nomerz

February 13, 2012

Christopher Jobson

I’ve seen a few photos of works by street artist Nomerz floating around for the past year or so and realized it was time to do a proper feature on him here. With a double dose of wit and color Nomerz transforms derelict buildings, towers, and crumbling urban spaces into whimsical, quirky faces in locations around Nizhny Novgorod, Russia. Skip to 0:45 in the video above to watch him create one of his recent pieces, The Fire in the Eyes.
