This was stated by the head of the culture Department of Almaty Arnar the Kurmashev.
He has published in Instagram a relevant video.
“We met with the guys who painted the mural “the Joker”. Fully come to an understanding. Actually what happened yesterday — this is pure misunderstanding. No one is going to paint any murals. On the contrary, there are big plans to develop this wonderful form of modern art,” said Arnar the Kurmashev.
