Robot Dino

With a futuristic looking ‘Robot Dino’ M-City refers to the industrial past of the city. In this district the renowned Etna factory was founded. The iron foundry and steam engines have been replaced by a robot with scissors, a reference to the barber shop which is located in the building.

M-City

M-City named Mariusz Waras, is a graphic artist, outdoor painter, traveller and amateur architect. His over 700 murals can be seen in the streets of Warsaw, Gdańsk, Berlin, Paris, Budapest, Sao Paulo and many more. His work involves piecing together hundreds of carefully cut stencils to create a coherent imagined cityscape of mechanical and industrial objects. He is intrigued by industrial spaces and their surroundings, taking his inspiration from the factories, hydroelectric plants, chimneys, and cranes that dominated his native town and childhood.
