Russian Subway Metro Advertising

We live in a society where graffiti is frowned upon because it apparently effects peoples standard of living. On the other hand does advertising not effect our standard of living? We are bombarded with ads everyday. We don’t ask to see advertising. The only reason advertising seems to be excepted is because it seems more legitimate because someone is making money off of it.

This particular Russian subway station has gone over board on the advertising.  In Soviet times the underground train stations used to be praised as masterpieces of art by Russian society. Each one was in depth planned in the smallest detail by the best Russian architects and artists. All the stations were decorated with the best sorts of stone and marble. There were large mosaic art works devoted to the Soviet life on the walls on the floor and on the ceilings. People coming from Russian countryside were astonished when they first time entered the Russian metro, it looked even more triumphantly than the museum of Communist party. Now they are just one big campaign of advertisements.

    Can I just say what a relief to uncover an individual
    who actually understands what they’re discussing over the internet. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people must check this out and understand this side of your story. I can’t believe you are not more popular given that you
    most certainly possess the gift.
