'Ngalamba' Wall Art

This new public artwork, titled Ngalamba: to stop and wait a while, has seen a ‘living wall’ come to life in Napier Street, Rye.


The stunning murals across the Peninsula are collaborative efforts that involve local artists, residents, and community organizations. Murals can tell a story of our neighbourhoods and build a sense of ownership and inspire pride.
