Murals & Open Space Transformation
Do you want to create art with a message?
The Afristar team will help you to conceptualize your message into a visual display, which Afristar artist Bonita Edwards then translates onto the desired space.
Bonita has been transforming public spaces (bus stops, bridge overpasses, shop walls) into aesthetic masterpieces with environmental or socially conscious messages for many years. In addition, her approach is to offer a mentoring component throughout the creative process – engaging with local artists-in-training or painter apprentices to impart technical skills and mentoring – creating incredible art pieces while simultaneously building up local skills and engaging community members in the beautification of their own neighborhoods . The mural thus becomes an opportunity to pass on skills, hone artistic talent, and build confidence in young artists while promoting positive messages.
