Lithuanian Street Art

In one underpass of Vilnius, there are walls and walls of artwork – too much to photograph in entirety, but the styles and themes are various, and best of all, nobody shies away from using colour. Here’s a small sample:

This and the previous, I believe, are by the same hand. There were a couple of others in similar style, colour selection, and thematics. ©rq, all rights reserved.


I was told that the mummy face hides the happy half of the pink face, which was the original artwork. But I also like the differently styled figure in the middle. ©rq, all rights reserved.


I’m not sure if this is a dragon or a gargoyle, but it lurks above as you descend… ©rq, all rights reserved.


Pretty sure this is a kookaburra with magical powers. ©rq, all rights reserved.

I should note, I can copyright only the photo I have taken; all actual artistic credit should go to the artists – unfortunately, unknown to me.

    I love bright, interesting graffiti. I think my favourite is the second one with the dogs of war…at least that’s what they look like to me. The bird at the end is lovely. It has an aboriginal flavour to it.

    I like both the dogs one and the bird one a lot. The penultimate one is clearly a dragon pretending to be a gargoyle, just waiting for the right moment to strike …
