This stone used to be my heart

“Ceramic Speaks in the Street” is a series of street art by Russian artist Daria Makarenko where missing bricks or stones on a wall or panels absent from pavement are replaced by bricks/stones/slabs with thoughts and phrases. The idea was to take an architectural item from an urban space and replace it with something thought provoking that can communicate between the artist and the viewer.


Silence also keeps a message
No need to break it

Each expression gives the passersby something to ponder and to interpret in their own way.


My small bamboo boat grew up and became an icebreaker


It’s a stone! Not a chocolate bar!


I was writing a fairy tale but it turned to be an absurd drama


The world is full of walls


It is time to spit out a chewing gum and say something


Just pass by: nothing serious but exaltation


True geniuses were never afraid of banalities


Never saw anyone kissing at this spot…

The project’s pieces were located throughout the streets of Stockholm, Sweden from 2011-2012.
