Look who’s done it again! Widely known for his surrealistic water colors, Tytus Brzozowski has added to his portfolio of murals with another large-format stunner in downtown Warsaw.
Found on ul. Wschowska 10, the latest makes use of anti-smog technology and was created using special paints that deaden the effect of airborne pollutants. Covering the entire building – not just one side – the mural was created in cahoots with ZGN Wola.
Mateusz Matejewski, director of ZGN Wola, said: “It wasn’t just the artist’s design that we liked; we made the façade of this building available because we understood the beneficial impact this mural could have on the environment – painted with anti-smog paints, when used on such a large surface the paints clean the air in the same way 400 trees would.”
Following the spirit of his recent murals, Brzozowski has paid homage to the immediate area by depicting many familiar local landmarks; aside from modern skyscrapers, that’s meant featuring the iconic gas towers close to Zachodnia station.
Known as “the Wola Colosseum”, these epic rotundas were built during the Industrial Revolution and have long fascinated Warsaw’s urban explorers.
Though still not fully complete, the artist says the mural should see its final touches added this week.
Primarily known for his paintings, Brzozowski first delved into murals in 2018 and has since seen several debut around Warsaw.
These have included works on the Spark office building; one on Chmielna 120; another behind ul. Prozna celebrating the area’s Jewish past; one in Praga that was painted to mark the centenary of Poland’s independence; and another close to Wschodnia station.
