The village of Bódvalenke located in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county is one of the most marginalised region of the Hungary. This village has been turned into a touristic sight by a group of activists and Roma painters because they painted the walls of the houses with giants pictures. Hungarian and foreign gipsies applied to paint on the facades of the houses. By the year 2011, 20 monumental work have been finished as a team-work of 10 artists. These are common artwork and sights all at once.
