Upside-Down Mural Makes Sense When Reflected on the Water

Rebecca OConnell

Lithuanian-American artist Ray Bartkus recently painted a beautiful mural on the side of a building in Marijampolė, Lithuania. It may seem abstract at first glance, but when you look at the reflection in the water near the structure, it all makes sense.

As the artwork reflects on the water, the pieces interact with the landscape; swans float by and swimmers dive in. While the image is digitally altered to better show the effect, it probably looks just as cool in person.

The painting is part of the Malonny art festival which brings artists together from across the globe.
