Abstract

The subject of the study are frescoes created in the cities of Krakow and Lodz, where contemporary underground artists address the theme of Judaism. The purpose of the work is to investigate the specificity of the artistic-figurative component of murals in the cities of Krakow and Lodz, which indicates an appeal to historical events associated with the Jewish population of Poland. The methodology of the work is based on the principle of scientific reliability and completeness; philosophical, historical, cultural, art history approaches; ontological, semiotic, historical-chronological, historicalcultural, micro-historical method, cross-cultural, comparative, iconographic, formal-stylistic and artistic-compositional methods of analysis. The results of the work allow us to get relevant topics that are covered by modern writers in the cities of Krakow and Lodz. The sphere of application of the results is the artistic practice of our time, history, theory and criticism of art, pedagogical activity of students and post-graduate students of creative specialties. Conclusions. It was determined that among the popular topics of street art that writers in European cities cover, in particular, ecology, religion, portraits of famous personalities, issues of tolerance, historicism, military aggression and peace, one of the main themes in the murals of Krakow is Judaica. The artists, whose works are located in Lodz, focus their attention precisely on the historical significance of the events that took place in the intermediate periods of the First and Second World War. Accordingly, plots devoted to the theme of the Jewish population are shown as important and significant. In doing so, they work compositions that use stylized symbols of the Jewish faith of Judaism and try to connect the events of the past and the future. Thus, in the plots of the murals of both cities, there is an appeal to the theme of the life of the Jewish population of Poland. These images are performed by the artists in monochrome colors and stencil spray art, imitating archival photos with a hint of the important cross-cultural significance of the depicted plots, their "documentary" and historical truth.
