    Mextonia: Culture kilometer

    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 by Helena Hanni & Vahur Agar (Estonia), Abril (Mexico), Calladitos (Mexico), Sens (Mexico).

    This fairytale-like piece is inspired by the power of nature and Estonians' closeness to it.
    The mural starts with the legend of Koit & Hämarik, Koit representing the Dawn and Hämarik the Dusk. It continues to the close relation to the forests that are filled with wolves, bears, foxes, beavers, elks, rabbits: the richness of Estonian forests. The mural ends with a duet of freedom.
