Soil from the Northern Rivers will make its way from Mullumbimby to Rome as part of an art project created by 20 local artists.

The mural, drawn with pigments made from local soils and pasted to the wall of Old Bakery Lane off Burringbar Street, was produced at the Imagine the Land workshop facilitated by local artist Karma Barnes last Sunday.

The artwork will be reproduced and installed in the street-art district of Rome by Karma next month as part of a fundraiser for her upcoming international project.

Locals can support and follow the project to see our local pigment paste-up hit the walls of Rome on Instagram at @k.a.r.m.a.a.r.t.s or purchase a limited-edition artwork from the project’s art sale at www.pozible.com/project/imagine-the-land-project-in-rome.
