Nintendo Reach for the Stars Mural in Moscow

Nintendo Russia Mural Reach for the Stars

“Reach for the Stars” with Mario

This mural of Mario, Luigi and Yoshi are on a building in Central Moscow. The caption says “Reach for the Stars.” This Nintendo themed mural was actually created to replace the previous mural of a “patriotic” Crimea mural. Both murals are created by Art-Facade,  a group that promotes young artists work and showcases their work in Moscow and St Petersburg.

It turns out that the residents asked Art-Facade to “paint it over with something benevolent.”

Translated from YouTube:
We are pleased to introduce you to the drawing “Reach for the stars!” In Moscow!
Address: Ul. Novoslobodskaya., D. 10, p. 1
The names of the artists: Alex 214, ReMarik.
