Nomerz, a native of Nizhny Novgorod in Western Russia, has, for the last five years or so, been travelling the lesser-known parts of Russia using his unique vision and talents to make street art statements on dilapidated and abandoned buildings.The elusive young artist, about whom little is known, calls his work “the Living Walls” as he breathes life into dying edifices.
