"Natura est ars Dei" by Anthea Missy; Hackney Wick, East London, 2018

'Natura Est Ars Dei’ – God Is Nature, is inspired by the myths of elves and Poison Ivy. The image depicts a female character at a larval stage who is the source of everything around her.

The artwork was part of a collective mural featuring three female artists and was painted during Street Art au Feminin – Feminine Street Art – held in Brussels (March 2018) in celebration of International Women’s Day.

Anthea later painted the same mural (in its original colours) on a brick wall in Hackney Wick, East London, and embedded the character in ivy trees representing the circle of life.
