A Mullumbimby alleyway has been transformed by young local artist Daniel Hend.

Entitled Spiritual Evolution, it was commissioned by Kym Masterson of the Japunumop Noshery on Burringbar Street.

Daniel says the work reflects the Byron Shire’s alternative understanding of mankind’s true potential.

Community donations also made it possible – the paint was sponsored by Dulux through Mitre 10 Mullumbimby. Daniel’s gallery can be seen at www.danielhend.com.
