Mural US AND THEM
This street art project has been designed for the year 2021, for the programme of the Lithuanian Capital of Culture Neringa as an Island of Culture. The artwork Us and Them is a symbolic scenario for the discovery of the Curonian Spit, a background for new events and beginnings. In search for the right expression on the time-marked walls of the building, the authors of the fresco tried to combine the colours and motifs of the place, and the silhouettes of trees and bushes growing next to it with a modernist façade structure reminiscent of a plane representation of a booklet. The change of cultural and natural layers in the artwork is marked by mottoes and associative drawings. In this way, five main themes for further interpretation are highlighted: personalities, ecology, history, mythology, and society.
On the wall, you see the first sketches of prospective artistic improvisations. In 2021, when Neringa becomes the capital of Lithuanian culture, this wall will change beyond recognition. The above themes will be implemented by a joint team of Lithuanian and foreign artists.
