[:en]Meet the Street Artists Giving Prague a Mosaic Makeover
Inspired by innovative graffiti, the trio that make up Free Mozaik—Jan Pancíř, Tereza Podová, and Jan Lukeš—collaborate to make mosaic street art installations all over the city.
Fairytale castles and cathedrals. Baroque architecture and Art Nouveau details. Rose, gold, and purple buildings lining every street.
There’s no denying Prague is one of Europe’s gems. Thanks to being one of the few cities that was spared destruction during World War II, the Czech Republic capital has architecture dating from Medieval times. Gothic spires and Bohemian statues are just some of the many architectural details that make Prague a draw for tourists.
It’s fair to note that the city is also well-maintained. Compared to other major European cities, there isn’t a ton of graffiti (aside from the popular tourist spot, The Lennon Wall). Here, if you’re going to add some art to a building, it better live up to the rest of city’s beauty and enriching color palette. Which is why Free Mozaik, Prague’s mosaic street artists, are so popular here.
