KÜF Project: A urinal over the ugly tiles of one of Ankara’s underpasses, ‘No Parking’ signs turned into peace signs, sidewalk barriers transformed into Pac-Man’s ‘pac-dots’ – all are the work of Ankara’s street art collective, the KÜF Project. The members of this movement make Turkey’s capital city a little more colorful each day. The group uses stencil graffiti, sticker art and street installations to add some colour to a city associated with monotony and bureaucracy.
Videos and photos of the KÜF Project’s finished work and artistic process are available online at Behance.net/kufproject; the group also has a Facebook page, KÜF Project. Ankara, stigmatized as the home of bureaucracy, awaits new projects to put more smiles on its residents. Maybe in the future, Ankara will not be thought of as the gray city of bureaucrats, but the colorful home to the emergence of street art in Turkey.
