Two kids sit on a hill, looking off into their imagination. This Banksy-esque mural tells the story of how this mural project came to be, as an introduction before visitors turn the corner.
Julia says that when she thinks of the word ‘mural’, she immediately thinks of street art, simple and quickly done. This contrasts with the last mural of the hallway, a credits mural purposefully placed and painstakingly slow to paint.
With the two kids, Julia manages to capture the childhood whimsy we all used to have. She’s also captured the child-like attitude of The Border Line project – come have fun, create something beautiful, and share it with the world.
The hill the kids are made from a pattern that will soon run all throughout the hallway, tying the murals together.
