P183 – Pavel

Russia's answer to Banksy

Russia's answer to Banksy

Pavel (P183), the Russian mystery kid, whom sadly passed away earlier this year, had potential to be one of the greatest street artists to date. P183, was born in Russia, where he did most of his work within the city of Moscow. He sought hard to tell truth to the public and expose them to lies, enabling people to tell the good from bad. Unfortunately, there is not a whole lot to date about P183, who’s life was cut short before he could grasp his own style, and just as his work was gaining popularity. What we do know, is the kid was influenced by Banksy, and started his very own movement in Russia. Hopefully his work will continue to live on, just as he had hoped for. RIP Pavel- “If I die tomorrow, I can at least feel that I have left something real behind.”
