I chose this topic because it is of personal interest to me as I have been documenting Murals and Urban Art for over ten years. Predictably this got diverse and very good submissions, making my choice of Winner very difficult. I was hoping for more entries, but am glad to see that others share my interest in documenting this kind of art because often it is short lived for a variety of reasons.

Honorable Mentions:

Kzaret



Aldeca




3rd Place, Marcel deJong



2nd Place: Jarek M.



1st Place: Markus Grompe

Thank you very much for awarding my photo the second place.
As a footnote to this, the mural was to be destroyed by an investor who had purchased the building. This caused a lot of protests and eventually the Minister of Culture and National Heritage stepped in and ordered the mural to be preserved. Here is the story (in Polish): http://www.poranny.pl/wiadomosci/bialys ... y,9872651/

Thanks for the information. Glad you got a photo before the mural was destroyed. The majority of the murals in this gallery are gone.
