„Mural was inaugurated by HR/VP of the EU Commission Federica Mogherini and Philippe Close, Mayor of Brussels, in the presence of Balkan countries ambassadors, EU officials, artists and friends of the Western Balkans! The guest artist Rikardo explained that mural represents friendship and cultural ties between the people of the Western Balkans region and the EU.“ ( reference: https://welovebrussels.org/2019/04/have-you-seen-the-new-balkan-trafik-mural-in-brussels/ )
