Stairway to heaven

Ray Bartkus creates surreal distorted reality by adding painted stairways and other spatial architectural elements to the existing stairway and the wall. The artist questions the perception of reality. Mental imagery and visualization can alter how we perceive the world around us. To a large extent, the mind creates reality.

Ceci n’est pas un mur

Famous Belgium surrealist Rene Magritte made a drawing of his pipe and wrote the title "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" (This is not a pipe) below the image. He wanted to emphasize that the viewer is seeing not a real pipe, just a painted illusion created on the paper. Ray Barkus turns this logic upside down. By painting the sky on the wall and naming it "Ceci n'est pas un mur " (This is not a wall), he claims that the imagination is capable of creating a new reality.

Crowd Surfing

The mural Crowd Surfing references an animation work I made. In making animation I am always thinking about how movements are made. I began to trace the paper puppets to study the movements of the puppets and the drawings resemble the drawing you see in this mural. When people are crowd surfing they pop up from the crowd and are carried by the crowd and fall back into the crowd. Their movement in the crowd and being carried by the crowd is a metaphor for aspects of our life as social beings.

Do what you can’t

This palyboard symbolizes a well-known play " Snakeladder". The drawing has been improved with the details of computer games and many other items inviting to break the rules of the game. The drawing depicts the hereos of the play who are the symbols of two different sides of the behaviour: a good and a bad one. A little person hanging on a dice and playing according to the rules of the game, loses. Wherereas, a skeleton, breaking the rules of the game, rises upwards till the end of the game. Namely this understanding symbolizes the title of the game "Do what you can't (Lith. Daryk tai, kas negalima)". The picture is drawn on the wall of a school building and depicts the idea of contemporary often riotuos youth which constatntly breaks the rules and does what is not allowed.

Anonymity of the crowd

In a crowd, we become invisible. We are free to expose our true nature without fear. This can be profoundly and creatively liberating. It can also conceal, and reveal, darker natures.

Flock of doves

Will Teather is internationally known for creating artworks that are both refreshingly contemporary, otherworldly and rooted in the medium's rich and complex traditions. " Flock" is intended to depict an impossible viewpoint, as if the viewer is stood in the middle of a flock of birds. The composition creates an immersive experience for the viewer through both the perspective and scale of the composition. The artist has always been drawn to the sense of spectacle associated with birds and their inherent symbolism, with doves being a symbol of peace.
