The BULTE Mural updates have begun. #ArtMyNoordgesig artist Macfadden Bharley has started to put the finishing touches to this prominent mural situated on the corner of Main Road and Colin Drive.
The artists intention is to carry through the geometric and linear markings that make up the core feature of the mural: the communities nickname for their neighbourhood BULTE. Macfadden will also include an interpretation of the map of Noordgesig.

These murals form part of series of gateway murals which lead the way into Noordgesig. Placed against a residential house opposite to the Forest View mural – this mural is combination of symbolic forms and line work that represents the cultural diversity and resilience of the neighbourhood.
Earlier today we shared a photographic survey of the Rotunda Linear park totems, the local artistic team are represented in this group shot beautifully. We salute their creative energy which has brought the Rotunda Totems to life.
