A Hungarian favorite appeared on the wall of a London playground this week when the Hungarian Cultural Center presented the first-ever Hungarian street art project: a mural of the male protagonists from Ferenc Molnár’s novel Pál utcai fiúk (Paul Street Boys).

The mural was commissioned by the Hungarian Cultural Center and created in collaboration with Hungarian artists, iamsuzie and Cokestd, and their partners, Színes Város and Global Street Art, to celebrate Molnár’s 140th birthday.

The project depicts Boka, Csónakos and Nemecsek on a 50 square meter wall in a London playground, and its aim is to boost the popularity of the Paul Street Boys – one of the most translated Hungarian novels of all time – in the United Kingdom.

The mural can be found at Alf Barrett Playground, 32 Old Gloucester St, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 3AD.
