Muralist and street art advocate Dima Fatum and curator Maria Uvarova work as an artist collective. They have participated in international street art festivals, murals and public art projects, and residences. Their site-specific works incorporate the historical and philosophical contexts of the city.
During their residency, Fatum and Uvarova created a mural based on the history and mythopoetics of the city. The project was preceded by an extensive preparation stage as they collected and analyzed information about Tashkent and its cultural codes.
