Polish graffiti artists Sainer and Bezt, collectively known as Etam Cru, paint large scale murals of surreal scenes heavily charged with Eastern European folklore, mysticism, fantasy and witty humor. Etam Cru’s artworks are scattered around Europe on countries such as Norway, Bulgaria, Germany, Austria, Russia, Portugal, Belgium and recently even in the U.S., in Richmond. Etam Cru was one of contributing street artists to the 2009 city beautification project undertaken by the Urban Forms Foundation in the Polish city of Lodz.
Bezt was born in 1987 in Turek, Poland, located about 100 km from Lodz, while Sainer, a native of Lodz, was born in 1988. They met at the Academy of Fine Arts and started painting together. Bezt and Sainer are both successful commercial artists and freelance designers, but its their graffiti culture that have taken Europe by storm. Today, they split their time between traveling around Europe together to paint murals at a variety of street art festivals and producing their individual work and exhibiting solo shows.
