AEC, half of the Ukranian street art duo known as Interesni Kazki, recently transformed a large wall in the old Croatian town of Vodnjan into what feels like a vivid and vibrant glimpse of a surreal fairy tale.

Entitled Glad Tidings, the thoroughly awesome mural was painted for the Boombarstick Festival, which takes place this summer. From the bird woman wielding a giant ear to the masked giant carrying a big purple shell to the business merman hanging out on the ground beneath them, this is a fascinating story we’d like to see more of, to say the least.
