“Moldovans, therefore, Romanians.” A lot of graffiti on the walls of Chişinău depict a growing segment of the population that would like to see the two countries merge into one.

Old Roman Columns disintegrating in plain view. A graffiti tag from Bust, a Romanian graffiti writer…

Mysterious BNE has left his tag all over the capital city. No one knows who he is, but as someone who travels the world, I can tell you that he is arguably the MOST prolific sticker slapper in the street art universe. I’ve seen them in tons of cities around the globe. BNE is a proponent for clean water 💦 for everyone… I’d say go to his IG, but, he’s taken all of his posts down…? I want to meet this guy so badly!

The Waiting is the hardest part.

An unattended dog , quite possibly the Queen’s , walks past a rundown house.

There’s still life inside these walls.

BNE. The sticker below is what I was referring to earlier. The tags that I’m seeing all over the city, are a first for me, I think. I thought he just did stickers.

Another sticker for mayoral candidate, Constantin Codreanu .

I love seeing books in different languages other than English . But, don’t read about that asshole, though. In ANY language.

Politics are a part of the fiber of Moldova 🇲🇩 . Russian Matryoshka dolls for sale at the market in the park next to the opera house.

Kitty on LSD. Because, why not ?

I love it when street art naturally merges with the urban landscape .

FVCK your politics. Serve the people ! “Jack” sticker is from Zacharie Bodson, à Lille, France-based artist.

The Monument of Ion and Doina Aldea-Teodorovici

It is one of the most touching monuments in Chișinău. This contrasting masterpiece embodies two real people – spouses Ion and Doina Aldea-Teodorovici. The two honored artists are distinguished for their artistic talent and struggle for the revival of national values. The monument stands in the memory of the great people of art, as Ion and Doina Aldea-Teodorovici were considered to be, together, a symbol of the struggle for independence of Moldova. http://casamare.md/en/places/arkhitekturnye-pamyatniki/pamyatnik-iona-i-doiny-aldya-teodorovich

SOLDANESTI, MOLDOVA 🇲🇩: THE OAK OF STEFAN CEL MARE & THE STONE BASILICA IN COBILEA VILLAGE

The Oak of Stefan Cel Mare and the stone Basilica of Cobîlea. 700 years old Oak Tree and too many disputing myths and legends surrounding it, to feel ok with spreading its truth. I encourage you to take your own 140km road trip from Chisinau to experience it yourself.
