Atlantis Station

For the MyCiTi bus station in Atlantis, street artist Faith47 has created a mural of herons in flight, spray-painted in a range of colours from sepia to luminous white. Apart from the immediate connection with transport and being on the move, the image conjures up flight, escape, transcendence and beauty in an historically marginalised context. Her work largely focuses on disenfranchised people or endangered creatures and is simultaneously allusive and enigmatic. In response to her murals, people often talk about the feeling of stillness and calm they evoke.
