Russian Artist Nikita Nomerz tried to distract the world from how much they hate Russia with this old church.

One of the coolest things an artist can do is take something ugly and shabby, and turn it into a work of art.

These abandoned structures are all over the world, but they have one thing in common; they all got a second chance to become something worth looking at.
