Award-winning South African filmmaker Rowan Pybus recently released this amazing short video titled No Standing Anytime inspired by the incredible swans painted by New York City street artist Faith47.
Faith spent part of her summer painting a series of otherworldly birds around New York. Titled The Psychic Power of Animals, the ongoing project brings the energy of nature back into the urban metropolis, softening the harsh city architecture with the gracefulness and spirit-like presence of the swans. “There’s an inherent irony in recreating nature on cement, so the series is a nostalgic reminder of what we’ve lost but also an attempt to reintegrate that into the present,” says Faith47. “We have become so distanced from nature, so these murals are an attempt to reconnect us with the natural world.”
