This was my first large scale outdoor mural and boy it was fun! The weather was a bit surprising but we pushed through and accomplished our goal. The mural represents Change and a consideration for all things on earth.The whole team at Wall-To-Wall pitched in to complete the mural. Coffee, Pizza and Red Bull were essential to its completion. Amongst the painting was live music and cultural events on Sutherland Ave hosted by sakihiwe festival.
