Street artist Yola's work in Warsaw, Poland features seniors from a local community center. He painted them as modern frescos, which are large murals of Biblical scenes painted in a style reminiscent of the Renaissance era.

Like many young people, Yola initially saddened to think of these old people who once contributed to society are often cast away in homes or day care facilities.

Eventually, Yola discovered with his modern frescos project that these glamorous grandparents are not living in misery, but are "a bunch of happy people." They've worked all their lives and have earned their rest and perhaps a step closer to Heaven.
