The Street art group „Zlye“ is a creative association consisting of an unspecified number of artists. It exists since the mid-2000s. Previously works by this art-group appeared only in the streets and were very provocative. Recently works can be also seen in exhibition halls and galleries of contemporary art centers. The main motive for creativity of „Zlye“ is a reflection of reality, by artistic allegories.
