Donatas Pirstelis

Startowa 7e
Festival 1997

Before the budget for Zaspa stretched to a football pitch or athletic track, two Lithuanian murals were separated by hectares of wasteland, affectionately known as the ‘Sahara’ to the locals.  The dense symbolism of Pirstelis’s mural harks back to the history of Gdańsk. Apart from the lion and the shipyard workers on their way to work, the expert eye can pick out unsettling symbols hidden in the antique ornaments.
