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.
“My mural focuses on the Estonian sea eagle, a majestic bird currently under threat due to man's interference and loss of habitat.
Throughout history eagles have been seen as symbols of great strength, leadership and vision.
The eagle is often viewed as the leader of all winged creatures, as apex predators of the sky, they have the ability to fly higher than any other bird. Because of this, ancient cultures believe the Eagle delivers a message of man’s connection to the divine and the natural world around us. A message of renewed life, stamina and resilience to endure through difficulties, bestowing the freedom and courage to look ahead and accomplish what may seem unachievable.
I hope that this mural sparks courage and strength to inspire its viewers to consider our relationship with our environment, and how we have an impact on our surroundings, realigning with an old-world view of interconnectivity which is needed now more than ever.”
