A Brief History of Street Art in Nizhny Novgorod by Alisa Savitskaya, Artem Filatov

Garage publishing program

The fourth book in the GARAGE.txt series examines the street art of Nizhny Novgorod, a unique phenomenon in Russian contemporary art.  

One of Russia’s biggest cities, Nizhny Novgorod is a curious mix of quiet provincial character and the ambitions of a megalopolis.

The city, its complex and unusual layout, elaborate structure, and various cultural layers have all informed the phenomenon that the authors of this book have named “Nizhny Novgorod street art.” The street art movement formed in the 2010s and unites local artists such as Andrey Druzhaev, Fyodor Makhlayuk, Anton Morokov, Andrey Olenev, Artem Filatov, Yakov Khorev, Vladimir Chernyshev, and TOY group. The book features numerous photographs documenting projects by these artists.
