    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.
    This mural has a message about the environment and marine life, but it also has a deeper meaning: communication and faith. Though it is important to take care of pollution and industrial wastes, this work also tells the world that Estonia endures, that there is hope, that people care. Once this common principle is established, the old man protects Estonia from sinking. The sketch on the wall invites you to  speak out in favour of Estonia, to communicate with the old man, and to proudly shout that Estonia lives forever.
