Russian Artist Transforms Old, Shabby Walls Into Mesmerizing Art Objects

Sofia Maksimova, a Russian artist from Irkutsk, certainly has a very special source of artistic inspiration and tons of imagination: she amuses herself by transforming badly plastered walls into small pieces of art, posting “before” and “after” pics of transformed plastered walls (with drawings inspired by their beguiling kinks and contours).

As a child, the artist liked to see images in the contours of walls, ceilings and building facades. She imagined mythological giants, creatures and entire story plots woven into the surface.
