The author of a portrait – Moscow we are known in Internet communities under the name Zoom. His next creation, the artist decided to create a spray paint, and the usual lipstick. For this street artist purchased at a flea market, a bag of tubes. Lipstick for a portrait of the beloved actress was used of several shades, from pale pink to dark purple.

This one-storey long building constructed of brick, painted yellow with grey plaster on the bottom. It is on smooth plastered part of it was graffiti.

The creation of the master instantly gained thousands of “likes” and rave reviews online. However, less than three weeks, to street art interfered with the utility. They painted a portrait of white latex paint. But the next day the person Gurchenko has appeared again. However, a bright red color after intervention services, housing turned into a soft beige-brown. Now subscribers of the artist in social networks wondering whether to leave the utility is not willing to give up the painting at rest or will continue to struggle with cosmetic oils contained in the lipstick, with cheap white paint.


Says the curator of the Moscow graffiti fans Ivan Panteleev: “I know Zoom. He is a freelance artist in life, and hardly tried to get some resolution. He never reconciles his graffiti. The problem is that if the building is state or municipal, utilities are obliged to maintain and keep clean. It does not matter Gurchenko where it is drawn or obscene word from three letters. It is not artistic and semantic load of the image, and that in their opinion the wall nothing should be. So, apparently, will continue to go and paint”.
