Street Artist Ray Bartkus
“Floating World” by Ray Bartkus in Marijampolė, Lithuania 2015.
Ray Bartkus intentionally painted it upside-down so that the swimmers, rowers and swans he depicted would be reflected right-side-up onto the river Šešupė, which flows through the city’s center.
A visitor visiting the old dam will constantly rediscover the drawing. “It simply came to our notice then. The drawing itself is drawn in reverse and its true order is reflected only in the water. I hope that every time we pass, people will discover something new, because this drawing, like our days of life, will be different than it was yesterday. “
