Any real estate owner will be outraged if someone paints a building belonging to him without his knowledge. Nate Komt, a resident of Peoria, Illinois, was enraged when he found a large mural on his property with an incomprehensible plot and an inscription in Russian: "Peace, earth, cookies". The author of the painting was quickly found, but this only made the story more mysterious.

Nate Komt, the owner of a building in the American city of Peoria at 1301 NE Adams, once turned to a local artist Joshua Hawkins and ordered him a mural with an unusual plot, paying in cash. The client asked not to delay and to complete the work as soon as possible. So Joshua immediately started decorating the wall and soon everything was ready.

By the evening, a bright mural with the character Korzyk from the TV show "Sesame Street" (Cookie Monster) and the Russian-language inscription "Peace, Earth, cookies" was ready and caused a smile from passers-by. It was made in the style of Soviet posters and immediately became a local landmark and a background for selfies. What was the surprise of the author of the picture, when soon he received a call from an angry man who introduced himself as ... Nate Komt and demanded an explanation.

It turned out that the owner of the building had never ordered murals, and his name was introduced by an impostor who paid for the damage of someone else's property out of his own pocket. Hawkins tried to call the number left by the mysterious lover of "Sesame Street" and the Russian language, but the phone was not answered.

Little is known about the impostor – he approached the artist on the street and, introducing himself as Nate Komt, immediately got down to business.

Now Hawkins understands that he was framed, although he does not even guess who and for what purpose. The impostor gave an advance for the painting, without haggling, and was even so kind that he bought the paints for the work himself. The sketch of the painting was sent to Joshua by e-mail, also signing the letter with the name "Nate Komt". The second part of the amount was transferred by the customer to the artist after the completion of the mural. He carefully examined the photo with the finished picture and was simply delighted.

The master painted the house absolutely calmly, and his assistant even handed out business cards to passers-by. Thanks to them, a real Expert managed to find the author of the"masterpiece". It turns out that a certain joker played two people at once and did not spare his money for this.

Joshua Hawkins himself, when he realized that he would not be brought to justice for arbitrariness, calmed down and even talked to representatives of the local press. He said that despite everything, he was satisfied with the work, because the mural in the Soviet style decorated the dull provincial Peoria. The real Nate Komt does not share Joshua's delight and wrote a statement to the police, who are now looking for the joker.

Because of murals and graffiti, problematic situations arise quite often. We have already written about the epic battle of graffiti writers and utility workers at the Rostokino railway station.
