Street art is experiencing its resurgence in Yerevan. A special 'graffiti community' was set up by enthusiasts covering mainly Armenian capital. There are also entries from Karabakh, Tbilisi, and related news there.

Tert.am
also covers "Art in Yerevan streets" in this short video below.

reminds me of banksy's work -- but so much more local.

So true. That was the first thought which crossed my mind when I saw these pictures.

I know the person who did the first piece (Boulevard of Broken Dreams) and it's not new. It's been up for quite a number of years now. There's another piece that I and my friends particularly like. We don't know who the artist is. I will post a photo soon and perhaps we can find the artist ??

Is it Mano Grigoryan ('Boulevard of Broken Dreams') ?

Look forward to your posting, Adrineh.
