Budapest

With the help of Carlos BreakOne’s brush, an alumnus of MOME, the swallows built their nest on the firewall on Akácfa Street in Erzsébetváros during the course of 14 days while it was raining constantly. The artist painted a 80 square-meter surface with the theme and purpose of visualizing the dichotomy of “Calmness or rampage”. For the artist, calmness is best personified by a Hungarian nesting bird, the swallow. The pair of this mural – the opposite side of the building – was painted in a similar theme by Cekas, a Polish artist.
