New Anthea Missy mural in Cape Town South Africa for IPAF festival themed ‘WE ARE NATURE’, curated by Baz Art.
This street art piece was painted in a popular area of Salt River and showcases a powerful statement about nature.
‘I have enjoyed uplifting the neighbourhood and receiving so much positive energy from the local community with regard to the message. Trees and vegetation contribute to our oxygen and our psychological balance on a daily basis and I wish public authorities and people to work hand in hand to preserve it ‘.
The ‘Save our trees, save us’ concept was originally created by Anthea to support community awareness of vegetation within the urban landscape of Brussels. ‘Dozens of trees were chopped down despite a 4000-signature petition calling for public participation and co-creation of public space. To become a smart city, co-creation with public space users should be at the top of the list for politicians.’
