Mextonia: Andreas Luigas

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

Mextonia is the festival of "Transgrafiti Muralism" that took place in Tallinn in June 2017. The festival featured 60 transgrafiti artists from Estonia, México, and the rest of the world. Murals were produced in over 25 locations all over Tallinn and cover a total surface of more than five thousand square meters of wall. During the festival this public space/wall turned into a large mural.

The central character of the mural is the barn swallow, sitting on the branch. The barbed wire fence symbolises limitation of movement, freedom, thoughts and words. For the barn swallow, it is just a place to stop and rest for a moment, observe the surroundings and then fly further. The barn swallow is a metaphor for the Estonians.
