“When she painted, she did not expect such friendly people’s perceptions. Someone brought a cake for her, the man went to work – went bought her a chocolate. In America this is not – well, you paint and draw,” says the curator of the art project Art United Us Leo Geros.

Curator talks – because of the bad weather instead of the planned 10 days, the work lasted almost a month. The paint was not yet dry. Had to change the ticket to new York. The sponsors covered all costs. Leo says to access the police building was a challenge.

“World practice is that if you invite the top artists, then you have him no opportunity then to say “no”. But here I was warned that you need to wait for resolution, and everything turned out OK,” explains Geros.

Deputy head of the Pechersky police does not hide – to go to work in the building, he was pleased.

“In the process of reformation should go in the best direction. A very interesting idea. As far as I know, the artist himself took the prototype of his father, who worked for a HUNDRED and a flower he grew alone in those conditions,” – says the Deputy head of the Pechersky district management of national police in Kiev Alexander Lozinski.

The editors of the international edition of StreetArt.Today included this mural in the top 7 of the world muralov months. Chosen purely on aesthetic criteria. From 2015, the year of the house in Kiev began to revive. Somewhere – portraits of outstanding Ukrainians, some allegorical figures, somewhere- love story.
