Check out above link on Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic who painted the mural above. I’m surprised he’s such a young guy which accounts for the witty nature of the paintings. But then, by now he must be famous. Let’s go for talent, and not famous names.

It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. –Ernest Hemingway
