    The next masterpiece is just around the corner. So, turn right at the T-junction ahead and look to your right.

    Stay here while I tell you more.

    This piece is our latest edition to the Salt River street art gallery. It was created to celebrate the union of the South African, French and Italian communities alongside the unveiling of the newly revamped Capago International offices.

    This mural is a visual reflection of the origin and evolution of humanity and mural art.

    The Silex Project from France uses his influence as an artist to bring light to the evolution of primitive and ancient creatures. For this mural, he created a prehistoric fish called a Coelacanth, which is known to be one of the oldest living species in the world.

    The lettering that spells “Origine” was created by Orion from Venice, Italy.

    The multi coloured hands depicted in the mural were created by South Africa’s very own, Mak1One. He's one of South Africa's graffiti art pioneers and has been crafting since the early 90’s.

    The launch of this mural signified the union of the three nations through art and is our most internationally significant mural yet. It demonstrates BAZ-ART’s intention to create unlikely yet mutually serving relationships that extend beyond borders.

    Now with the Coelacanth mural on your left, make your way to the next work a little way along this road.
