Art has the power to be incredibly transformative. Even if you look at a piece of artwork in a museum and think, I can’t believe that’s worth millions of dollars, there’s no denying that it has the ability to generate discussion, awaken the senses, and inspire the people who admire it. Art also has the ability to take an old run down building and transform it into stunning centerpieces for a city. Throughout the world, there are some amazing examples of the before and after transformations that can occur when artists think outside of the box to deliver a new lease on life to old run down structures. Here’s just a glimpse of the transformative nature of art that can be found in public places.
3D Mural In Poznan, Poland
Just because a building is old it doesn’t mean it has to look drab and outright depressing. An artist in Poznan, Poland took the side of a gray building and injected some much-needed color. Artists in our before and after photos tend to have one thing in common, they take the culture of the city where their artwork is being shown and use that culture for inspiration. This building received a new lease on life with the help of some paint and a keen eye for detail. Business owners can have this same type of work completed on their buildings for a relatively low-cost given the type of results they can expect to see.
