On my search for paintings around the city, saw these murals. Nice to see the paintings beautifying ugly concrete walls. One of my favorites is the one with a class picture, where the photo was enlarged and each person was painted.

I didn't actually do the outside tour of the painted walls as currently there is a marvellous exhibition inside the museum building focusing on the electrically household gadgetry of the post-WWI era (runs until the end of 2014). It's not an enormous space or an...More
