Romanian Street Art unveils multidisciplinary art intervention in Bucharest: a fusion of visual and auditory creativity.

Bucharest’s Exhibition Boulevard takes on a new dimension as part of the Romanian Street Art project. In collaboration with musician Kozo, artist Delia Cîrstea brings forth a large-scale artwork that can be experienced visually and aurally, free of charge, in public spaces at any time of the day.

This work, co-produced by Delia Cîrstea (mural) and Kozo (soundtrack), joins the two interventions by Italian artist Mr Thoms (2022) and Pisica Pătrată & Vlad Caia (2023), in previous Save or Cancel projects, in collaboration with Romexpo partners.

Delia’s painted work features a QR code that can be scanned to listen to the soundtrack composed by Kozo.

We invite you to explore the city and discover a new artwork that transforms the urban landscape into a story with fantastical characters and captivating soundscapes.


Delia Cîrstea, winner in the open call “Artă în lucru,” is a mural artist and illustrator based in Bucharest. As a creative individual with a developed chromatic sense, Delia creates complex and intriguing works. Her focus is currently on the digital realm, especially illustration. Her chosen subjects are diverse, with a primary focus on creating utopian characters inspired by human flaws. Delia usually captures the state or moment of the character rather than the action itself.

“The artwork titled Urban Jungle simultaneously highlights the power and creative impact of imagination in our real world through a scene of the destruction of a city by imaginary characters. Amidst the chaos and bustle, the characters make their presence felt, amplifying the atmosphere of disaster, the work thus offering a clear visual perspective on the daily turmoil of big cities.

The evolution of street art in Romania is a significant phenomenon, and the transformation of cities into true open-air art galleries is a sign of the appreciation and recognition of urban art. However, it is important to continue to educate and raise awareness of the value and importance of art in the public space to promote a culture of appreciation and respect for this form of artistic expression. It is a gradual process, but with time and effort, it is possible to see shortly a much greater growth in the understanding and acceptance of street art in Romanian society.” – Delia Cîrstea
