Description

This mural is painted on the wall of an underpass. It features an underwater scene of colourful salmon swimming in a river, with rocks, water and trees along the riverbanks, placing the viewer as if they are under the water witnessing this underwater ecosystem.

Artist Statement

This mural was designed around the location: the bridge and the road underneath are parallel to another river that spawn salmon at certain times of the year. The salmon running up the river in this mural mirror with design to show the lifecycle of the salmon in the real river.”
