Take note – story published 1 year ago

On Monday, November 21, the third of a total of five graffiti drawings dedicated to one of the major investment goals of the European Union (EU) funds for 2021-2027 was completed in Jelgava, the Ministry of Finance announced. 

This time, the wall of the Pārlielupe library (located at Loka maģistrālē 17) was painted, symbolically reflecting a social and inclusive Europe and Latvia.

Throughout November in five different cities (Valmiera, Daugavpils, Jelgava, Liepāja and Riga) with the involvement of graffiti artists, it is planned to carry out wall paintings, each of which will visually represent one of the investment goals of EU funds. Admittedly, it might not be exactly the most hip or hop of subject matter, but at least it's a chance to brighten the place up.

The first two graffiti walls "Smarter Europe and Latvia" and "Europe and Latvia closer to residents" have already been opened at Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences, Valmiera, as well as in Daugavpils, Jauna Forštata, where the public transport stop "Aveņu iela" was painted.

The author of the artwork "Social and inclusive Europe and Latvia" is Matīss Maksimovs.

The Finance Ministry told LSM each of the five artworks cost about 1,000 euros to produce, including royalties to artists and materials.
