Vitaly Gidevan, an artist from Kyiv, created a mural painting – owl’s head above a book, as Segodnya reports.

The artist has been working on the painting of five days. He noted that he used more than 35 spray paint cans for this.

“Owl symbolizes wisdom, it seems like it leafs through a book. An enormous universe is hiding in a book. We are connected with it since the birth. The alphabet, fairytales, and then – a fascinating world of science, fantasy and love… It gives us an opportunity to discover other dimensions, to live a new life. Reading the same book, we all imagine a unique plot. This wealth of knowledge gives one a strong power to make the greatest discoveries, immense constructions and heroic deeds,” Gidevan told.

The artist specified that he interlaced the symbols of his own life into the painting. The number of the pages in the book, which turn into birds, symbolize 11 years of the artists’ activity.


Earlier, Gidevan created a graffiti of a roller bird on Sevastopil square and a painting of a lynx surrounded by the blue birds this spring.

As it was reported, the residents of a high-rise apartment house spoiled a mural with a thermal insulation. Last month the artists created a huge graffiti with the Cossacks in Kharkiv region.
