To transform a traditional vandalistic object
into art space.
Developed solution preserves Vorontsov Palace colonnade from vandalism. One of the columns is given specially for drawings. It’s covered with the paint and special composition which allows to delete everything easily.
With appearence of allowed graffiti places less people wants to ruin other buildings. That’s why leaving their masterpieces only in front column, painters leave clean all the others. Water based markers can be deleted with the usual sponge. And pictures made with permanent tools can be washed without damaging the surface.
For creating first works all odessa painters, illustrators and graffiti artists are invited. Everybody who interested should prepare sketch not larger than 1000 px width and send it as jpeg on firstname.lastname@example.org.
First we find an idea how to lower vandalic tension on colonnade. Then we study our work object.
It's common practice in the world to make special objects where people allowed to paint and write.
Now it’s time to think how to place this thing next to colonnade. For detailed observation we take quadcopter.
And what if we approach a problem the other way - try to officialy paint one of the columns.
Looking into painting technologies, watching colonnade restoration, which is in progress right now.
From professional painters we found out the difference between an interior and exterior paints. The main purpose of exterior paint - is allowing stone to breathe and letting out the moist. We need a paint which won’t have marks from permanent markers after it’s deleting. So we’re testing four different paints with four recepies and noting the time to full drying.
Making measurements and calculations. Finally we decide to paint one of outside columns and for start to invite good illustrators.
