In the regional center the work of Vladimir artist Mishkin was painted over – graffiti on a transformer booth near the house on 40 Mira Street. The work appeared on August 10, 2020, it was part of a series dedicated to the games of the 90s. The artist also placed recognizable elements and characters from dandy games and comic books on elements of the urban space.

Mishkin brought Tetris to the attention of others as a once globally popular game developed by Soviet and Russian programmer Alexei Pazhitnov in 1984. In terms of sales, Tetris was surpassed only by Minecraft.

In mid-April 2021, the graffiti was painted over. It is unknown whether this was done at the initiative of the management company or the city authorities.

A hundred meters away from the vanished work, the inscription on the wall “I love my homeland” made by local employees of the district office in accordance with their aesthetic tastes, remained.

How it fits into the architectural landscape, readers can judge for themselves. Neither the authorities nor the management company have yet painted over the graffiti.
