This awesome mural is the work of Waone, half of the Ukranian street art duo known as Interesni Kazki (previously featured here), and Seth Globepainter. The calligraphic work was done by Viktoria and Vitalina Lopukhiny. The artists collaborated to create this amazing piece at the Kyiv Mohyla Academy in Kiev, Ukraine. They titled the mural “Vita sine litteris mors est” which means “Life without literature is death.”

Books and stories have been my companions as long as I can remember, and when the world walks out on you, they can be a shelter and an exile.
I designed and stitched this wrap dress in the buttery shade of old paperbacks and wrote out the words to Neil Gaiman’s story on it.
This just dropped my jaw…
