Created for the Jan 2019 Street Prints Manaia Festival.

Melinda Butt (aka MIN) is a passionate artist who uses an architectural approach to outdoor art to transform overlooked spaces and structures. For her outdoor murals Melinda uses colour palates that mirror the surrounding environment.

Melinda added the following comments to her "Untitled" landscape:  The theme of the event was 'Weaving the Threads of Humanity'. This abstract landscape references two hands rising up through the land symbolising man's interaction and connection with the earth. There is a hidden portrait facing upwards as the bird takes flight just in front of the nose.

"I often reference flight in my work for a number of reasons. For this image, it symbolises the past, present and future, a transcendence of one realm into the next."
