    Mextonia: Silver "SBoy" Seeblum

    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.

    Inspired by the wit and technological achievements of Estonians, the mural depicts in crisp tones three symbolic media fields: blue for information technology and e-solutions, black for radio echoing the voices of people, and white for TV screens, illuminating the dark Northern nights. The ID-card reader depicts the symbolic runic symbol "kaheksakand", protecting our nation.
    It is an exciting composition by seemingly calm Estonians, who have shown that with their wit and contemplating minds, combined with technology, they can be the planet's most forward-thinking country.
