In January 2019, some of the worlds best street artists transformed some grey city walls into colourful masterpieces as part of the Street Prints Manaia, International Art Festival. 15 incredible murals based on the theme “Tui ate muka Tangata – Weaving the Thread of Humanity”.
"Respect Tomorrow" was created by Bryce Williams and Jasmine Fuller from Whangarei. At that time, Bryce said: "I decided to paint a weave pattern with this significant text and the help of my fiancé, Jasmine Fuller. The blue represents Whangarei's beautiful waterways and the ocean, and the green represents Whangarei's lush native forests. These threads of Whangarei are weaved together with a balanced text 'Respect Tomorrow' within.
My take on Humanity is that together as a community we look after our resources including the waterways and the forests to 'Respect Tomorrow'."
