Gdansk, Poland, celebrated in this mural by Joel Bergner, was the birthplace of the labor movement known as "Solidarity", that helped bring an end to Communist rule across Central Europe.
"My current work combines the art and stories of traditional societies with current social issues and urban artistic styles. I believe that ancient spirituality, philosophy, and mythology from around the world has a lot to teach us today and relates to our common humanity. My work involves research into the significance of the symbols, deities and people I paint in order to understand the lessons that they teach and how we can learn from them."
