    R2-D2 Star Wars graffiti on Prague bunker

    In the heart of Prague (Czech Republic), hidden amongst the city’s bustling streets, lies an unassuming air vent for a nuclear shelter. But upon closer inspection, one would discover that this dull and unremarkable structure has been transformed into something truly special.

    In 2017 a group of unknown graffiti artists took it upon themselves to bring new life to this forgotten corner of the city, by transforming it into the beloved Star Wars droid, R2-D2. This creative and unexpected piece of street art serves as a reminder that even the most ordinary places can be transformed into something extraordinary, with a little bit of imagination and a lot of artistic talent.

    Why would someone paint a ventilation shaft of a nuclear bunker in the likeness of R2-D2? Well, maybe they wanted to create a “bunker-buster” of their own, or to add a little bit of “The Force” to an otherwise dull and dreary underground hideaway. Or perhaps they were just looking for a way to bring a little “droid-lightenment” to the world. But honestly, who wouldn’t want to add a touch of Star Wars to their underground bunker? It’s the ultimate “Escape Pod” from reality.
