Lilya Brik as well

skapa2016

The 2016 mural from the neighbourhood festival of Santa Klara, Azken Portu and Aritzbatalde in Zarautz had a Russian futurist theme. Furthest left, there’s a pastiche of a poster featuring Lilya Brik, the muse of Vladimir Mayakovsky:

lilya-brik

The Basque Lilya shouts nik ere bai! ‘me too!’, referring to nik ere buelta, the theme of that year’s festival. (The original Russian Lilya, shown to the right, shouted for knigi, ‘books’.)

nikerebai

refugees-welcome

Other texts on the wall include ez da EZ, meaning ‘no is NO’, “refugees welcome”, and this poem below:

poem

lehenagokoak dira ibaiak eta mediak
aspaldikoak lurra eta bidea
jendearekin lotzen ditut galderak nire kaleetan
nork erabaki zuen hau zela tokia?
nork jaso zuen aurreneko babeslekua?
nork eman zien harriei jendetasuna?
nork egin zuen trenbidearekin muga?
nork izendatu zuen azken portua?

In this Google photo album, there are several photos from when the mural was painted and of the artists behind it.
