A silkscreen print by Estonian street artist Edward von Lõngus where you can see a policeman arresting a famous children’s book character called Sammalhabe (“Mossbeard”), who has cannabis growing in his beard. The author has said it’s a comment about the war on drugs. You can see the same image in Tartu opposite the state court stenciled on a wall.
Edward von Lõngus is probably the most famous Estonian street artist. However, Lõngus never reveals his face; according to the artist, he doesn’t even exist in physical form. Read more about von Lõngus on Wikipedia.
A silkscreen print by Estonian street artist Stina Leek. Stina is a young and furious freelance artist, founding member of the art collective Ajuokse (‘Brain Vomit’) and the organizer of underground art gatherings. Her work is recogniseable by its thick and wonky graphic line and bountiful eyeballs.
She’d go with lowbrow art if she had to categorise her work stylistically.
A silkscreen print by Estonian street artist GUTFACE where you can see a street artist going hunting for new walls.
GUTFACE is a lowbrow artist whose roots are deep in the soil of East Estonia. You may find him rolling away under a bridge in Tartu, working on plywood cut-outs in his studio in Tartu, or behind the wheel of a car that’s always packed with paint on his way to another wall. His natural curiosity is mixed with personal reflections that manifest in luscious forms and colors with a strong kick.
