Following the hidden miniature sculptures across Budapest, another example of guerrilla artwork can be spotted in the capital, this time made of driftwood. The sculpture, depicting a human figure, is the work of Russian artist Dima Shlyonkin and has been sitting on the Buda side at the foot of Gellért Hill, between Liberty and Elizabeth Bridges.

According to his Instagram page, the sculptor had previously made sculptures out of wire and branches, so far mostly in Kazan, but his latest creation was placed on the Danube bank of Budapest.
