the world knows other major murals – but in terms of complexity, volume and speed of work, scale and number of participants involved, they are incomparable to the wall created by misha most. the hall of fame in colorado (16,554 sqm), fixed in the guinness world records book as the largest street mural in the world, has existed for several decades. it was created by hundreds of artists, and every year it is supplemented by the works of new authors. the mural project was chosen in the course of the ‘vyksa 10000’ open competition, juried by well-known artists, designers and architects.
