“Save Our Trees, Save Us” by Anthea Missy; Salt River, South Africa. IPAF February 2018
Anthea was invited to the IPAF (International Public Art Festival) in Cape Town, South Africa, where she painted a large mural version of ‘Save Our Trees, Save Us’ in the popular Salt River area. She chose to highlight the recent events surrounding the Toikai Forest which involved hundreds of citizens fighting to save their precious forest even though the trees were eventually chopped down.
“Trees help us breathe better air and make us feel more balanced. If people express a need to live and be surrounded by more biodiversity, it should be possible to find a consensus with the politicians and co-create a new public space tomorrow.” ~ Anthea Missy
