The Mogilskie Roundabout in Krakow is becoming one of the most mural-decorated parts of the city. No wonder - passersby are surrounded by concrete walls on all sides, although there are also a few trees or flower beds, as well as fragments of a former fort. Now a new painting has been created - this time the surface of the pillars has been used for it.
Passing under the Mogilskie Roundabout, one will come across, among others, a fox, an owl, a stork and other representatives of fauna, but also flora - various species of animals are looking at us from behind colorful leaves. The main task of the "Wild City" mural is to distract passersby from the concrete city and to remind and show how diverse and beautiful species of wild plants and animals live around us.
The mural is also a reminder of the enormous threat to the continued existence of these creatures in the world. It is meant to provoke reflection on the place of nature in the city and make viewers realize that if we give it more space, it will repay us with colors, smells, sounds, fresh air, beauty and one-of-a-kind aesthetics. We can fully realize the irreplaceable role of nature when we ensure that our cities are not concrete deserts, but give as much space as possible to natural processes of nature.
Among these diverse drawings of flora and fauna, an important place is dedicated to the "Wild City" inscription itself, which will be readable from only two places in the Mogilskie Roundabout tunnel

The main characters of the mural are plant and animal species whose existence, especially in the city, we do not remember on a daily basis. It is also increasingly difficult to meet in the natural environment even the most endangered species: wolves, lynx, bears, bats or bison. Among these diverse drawings of flora and fauna, an important place is dedicated to the "Wild City" inscription itself, which will be readable from only two locations in the Mogilskie Roundabout tunnel.
The concept of the mural is a joint project by graphic designers Paulina Czak, Piotr Jakob, Joanna Krótka and Olga Mulica.
