"I’m really excited to share this list, as I managed to find some fantastic examples of murals, that can’t be found on other lists of this kind. My favorite  works are the Valencia stuff from a famous street art group Escif, but also the one painted by Andreyante AO in Nizhny Novgorod, and the mural in Łódź created by a Polish street artist Barys."
