The Mural is a reflection of vibrants streets, showcasing colourful roads and buildings in-front of a cloud filled sky. The vibrant streets and buildings aim to inspire the youth to create more art and build community. This design also reinforces diversity and interconnectedness; through which a community thrives. The colourful buildings within this city landscape speak to those who dwell within and bring the streets to life. As I painted amongst the community, a little boy and his father were driving past as the child exclaimed that he wanted to visit the city landscape. This inspired me to title the mural “Little One’s City” as it is the youth that are our future.
Located inside The Source Bulk Foods Roncy, it was created by a staff member, and funded by the owner of the store.
It features the store’s nut butter schedule, a changing middle section with the “recipe of the month”, and a quote.
Tanya Pixie Johnson created this mural on the back of the Community Futures building for the 2020 Nelson International Mural Festival.
“It is my intention that this reference will create stylistic dialogue with other Art Deco design and architectural features in the city. The composition includes two cat-like sentinels and the suggestion of arches or doorways, water and tree or plant-like forms
These ideas are stylized to meet the design parameters proposed by the client.”
Created from the 2021 Nelson International Mural Festival on the Cedar Street retaining wall.

The robot’s large eyes are open, looking to the left of the viewer, but their brain – a light blue semicircle circle – is filled with ten sheep connected to each other with a dark blue lines. The robot’s brain is connected to their body with light blue lines, reminiscent of a circuit board.
