Mural Prep by Pat Perry for Sea Walls in NapierAbout The Mural

Titled “Reweave the unraveling world”, the new Pat Perry mural talks about hope. It depicts a boat sailing in a vast grey sea devastated by pollution and garbage. On board of this boat there is a boy holding a pinwheel and a woman weaving a tapestry of a rather clean blue ocean.
The result is a clear contrast between a polluted world and a new clean one based on alternative energies and respect for nature.
The mural is critical of the modern world, where the artist is trying to raise awareness of the pressing environmental issues the oceans are facing.
