It started with a blank white wall separated by a few gray stripes. Then an idea was born, and then a project. And Mrs. Monika’s good will. Because it was on the outer wall of the “Filip i Maja” kindergarten & nursery that she ran, that Mr. Kamil was able to make a huge mural depicting the most famous characters of Bohdan Butenko.
So there is Gapiszon with Korniszon, Cezar and Gucio, holding a banner with Kwapiszon with the inscription “Butenko pinxit”. The whole thing was topped with the kindergarten’s logo. All passers-by and drivers using 11 Listopada Street in Dąbrowa Górnicza stop at this place to photograph this unique work or at least enjoy it for a dozen or so moments …
The works began in the late evening of May 8, 2022. A painting showing the project created by Mr. Kamil was displayed on the building’s wall. Then he jumped on a special platform and in less than an hour made a (“black and white”) sketch of the mural. The coloring of the sketch took place a day later, when from From 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, in the scorching sun on the arms, the next stages of this enormous painting were created. It turned out that a lot of spray-paint containers had been used, and the contractor sat down on the sand happy, though exhausted by the murderous work.
The mural is beautiful!
Its official unveiling will take place in the fall of 2022. Then the “Filip i Maja” Kindergarten & Nursery will be “baptized” with the name of Bohdan Butenko. Works in this direction are already in full swing, as you can see by looking at the wall just above the main entrance to this building. On May 21, 2022, the artist’s daughter saw the mural live, who together with her husband participated on that day in the opening of the exhibition of satirical works “Bohdan Butenko. Drawings”.
