Newsagents’ kiosks are favoured surfaces among graffiti-bombers, who create their pictures illegally in the urban space. New graffiti cover the elder and after some time kiosks turn out to be all over drawn – this isn’t the best improvement of the urban environment.

We tried to change graffiti’s bad influence and transformed it to a benefit. When the city falls asleep, the „Rospechat“ kiosks turn to unique art-objects, creating a street-art gallery opened for everyone in the urban environment.

When we found this kiosk, it was beaten black-and-blue because it had been covered with tags. Every tag or throw-up is a part of the urban space, though.
The Hands painting on kiosk’s shutters is one of exercises in academic painting. In sign language the gesture of the hands means “closed“.
