An encounter between generations, cultures and artistic visions. The systematic geometric structures of Edeltraut Rath from Germany and the spontaneity of Pan Li Ping from China meet on a wall in Nagórskiego Street. The result is a mural which really should be viewed in the full sunlight of the afternoon.

The most time-consuming of all the monumental pieces. It was once called the psychedelic ivy. Improvised to a large degree, it is painted in a record number of colours. In the battle against the inexorable march of time, help has come from residents of Pilotów Street, who are responsible for the individual splashes of colour on the lower part of the wall.

An apathetic rider with a standard displaying indifference and protected by a dubious shield with the figure of a modern-day European currency. In 2012 the Euro crisis was just beginning, and the significance of the Argentinian mural gained in strength along with the deepening problems of European debtors.

The mural was painted in shades that echo the colours of the Polish flag. It is an interpretation of photographs taken during a typical summer’s day in Westerplatter, the place which witnessed the outbreak of World War Two.

The work illustrates the process of metamorphosis and the blotting out of details that collective memory of historical events is subject to.

A Hero of Labour from the Age of Consumption wanders through a flowery meadow pushing a bottomless shopping trolley. The mural deliberately recalls the style of socialist-realist propaganda.

The modest caretaker sweeping the wall of a block on Dywizjonu 303 Street is in fact the neighbour of Jub Mönster, a Bremen lawyer who begins the day with a ritual sweeping of the street in front of his house. The shadow of the sweeper has been painted in such a way as to create an illusion on a sunny morning, when all the sweepers in the world take to the streets with their brooms.

A Zaspa pyramid of animals, painted in exceptional circumstances. With the scaffolding already prepared on Pilotów street, one of the invited guests cancelled the trip to Gdańsk. In the heated search for a replacement, the Gdańsk artist Joanna Skiba was persuaded to step in – her first experience of a 36 metre-tall wall.
