Mariusz Waras, better known as M-City, is a Polish artist whose large-scale stencils create imagined cityscapes inspired by impressions from his childhood in an industrial area. His work was featured as part of the opening of the URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Mariusz Waras was born in the late 1970s and grew up in Gdynia, Poland, surrounded by factories, hydroelectric plants, chimneys, and cranes, which became a great source of inspiration for his artistic work years later. After graduating from the Department of Graphic Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, he developed his style by piecing together hundreds of carefully cut stencils to create coherent imagined cityscapes. Works up to 85 meters long attest to his fascination with industrial spaces on a grand scale. Under the pseudonym M-City, he has created more than 700 murals in Warsaw, Gdansk, Berlin, Paris, Budapest, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Bolzano, London, or Prague and has exhibited in several solo and group shows.
