Edward von Lõngus is without a doubt the most famous of Estonian street artists. The first time they attracted public attention was in 2011 when they sprayed the images of homeless Tammsaare and Koidula on the streets. Adding to the mystery, Lõngus never reveals their face and, according to the artist, they don’t even exist in physical form. Instead, they are a theoretical concept shared by all, the age of multiple identity reflecting off the information field generated by the vibrations of our collective consciousness. When breaking auction records became too customary for them, they stunned the public by receiving state support as an illegal street artist to tour around Europe for two years. Lõngus likes to play around with cultural codes and every piece of their art is charged with relevant issues. Their highest selling work fetched 13 050 euros.
