Heroes

The intention was very simple, put portraits of important personalities from Czech history in suburb streets that carry their name and that didn’t even exist when those people lived. Thus connecting the heritage of these heroes with places that use their names for only orientation purposes. A funny thing happened when we were putting these huge posters in the street. Suddenly an old lady came to us, with very aggressive attitude. She asked why are we glueing this thing on her house. So we sad, that it’s the Eduard Bass, famous writer. So she asked, why are we putting him there. So we sad, it’s his street. After a while, a smile appeared on her face, she wished us a happy day and good luck. I think that was the last time my art was appreciated by older generation.
