'the keeper of the keys' by nomerz
russian street artist nikita nomerz transforms abandoned structures in various cities including his home town of nizhniy novgorod by re-purposing
their features into distinctive characters through graffiti. nomerz continues the project by traveling and transforming urban debris,
tree trunks and dilapidated buildings into peculiar illustrations full of personality and quirk. converting chasms into mouths and crumbling
brick craters into eyes, the artist re-interprets what was once abandoned and uncared for into spirited characters peppered around town.
