It can be seen on the façade of a warehouse in the Polish capital’s northern district of Żerań.

The warehouse belongs to the Prologis Poland company, which is active in real estate property management.

Maksiov’s mural depicts four birds called blue tits, which, as the artist explains, "stand in animal symbolism for inter-human communication, joy, resourcefulness and openness to the world.”

He adds: “The blue tit also represents happiness, positive thinking and prosperity; moreover this is a bird characteristic of both Poland and Ukraine.”

Maksiov studied painting and art conservation in Odesa and Kyiv. He has been doing 3D street painting and murals for over a decade, including international projects in countries such as Germany and Italy.
