When and why
Of course during the daytime. The fact is that graffiti is far from the streetlights!

Little about the object. This is the work of a Hoodgaff team from the city of Vitebsk. In St Petersburg and other cities there are a few more of their works (search by #myhoodisgood). Unfortunately, street art is not eternal and is gradually being destroyed. Although, guys restore some paintings.
