Art: Alternative signs of Russian stores

In response to another price spike.

Artists of the MXD project have depicted alternative signs of popular chain grocery stores, resembling real ones. For example, Pyaterochka has turned into “Be patient”, and “Lenta” – into “Tlen”.

One of the co-authors of the project told that the idea arose in response to another price increase.
