Mesmerizing artwork on the streets of Polevskoi city not far from Yekaterinburg honors local history in an ultra-realistic fashion.

Three-dimensional graffiti has appeared all around the Ural city of Polevskoi, not far from Yekaterinburg (1,645 km east of Moscow). Street art group Spektr has sprayed its artwork, which is influenced by artifacts from local museums, onto ordinary buildings.

Each painting is accompanied by a written story because the artists want to give locals the opportunity to learn more about their history.  

According to Spektr, the city’s museums possess loads of interesting artifacts with backstories which are no less exciting than the fictional worlds of Harry Potter and Lord of Rings.
