Solid Green’s New Mural: A Journey of Art and Sustainability

Solid Green is thrilled to share an exciting development in our ongoing journey to renovate our new office in Parkhurst – an inspiring mural that reflects a highly successful collaboration.


This latest project has taken us far from our usual terrain of data, sustainability metrics, and operational efficiencies, and into the vibrant world of art and creativity. The result is a stunning mural on the street-facing side of our building, serving as a bold statement of who we are and what we stand for.

The journey began with a collaboration between two incredibly talented individuals. The design was crafted by Sindiso Nyoni, a high school friend of one of our directors, Chilufya Lombe. Sindiso is known for his remarkable artistry and impactful designs, and he poured his creativity into this project, resulting in a spectacular mural. Bringing Sindiso’s vision to life on the wall was Yolo, a gifted artist with a keen eye for detail and a passion for public art. Together, they transformed a blank canvas into a vibrant representation of Solid Green’s ethos.

“The mural incorporates elements that reflect our dedication to sustainable practices,” explained Chilufya Lombe.

From depictions of renewable energy sources to symbols of environmental conservation, every detail resonates with our mission to promote a greener, more sustainable future. Additionally, the mural beautifully captures the essence of Johannesburg, our home and the heartbeat of our operations. It showcases iconic landmarks and cultural motifs that celebrate the rich heritage and dynamic spirit of this incredible city.

The process of creating this mural was a truly collaborative effort. Our directors Chilufya and Marloes worked closely with our staff member, Jennifer Dean, a brilliant photographer and artist in her own right. It was surprisingly easy for us to agree on the preferred design, a testament to how well Sindiso understood the brief and our business. His ability to capture our vision and translate it into a compelling design made the decision-making process smooth and enjoyable.

Marloes shared her excitement about the project:

This mural is not just a piece of art; it is a symbol of our commitment to sustainability and our deep roots in Johannesburg. It’s been an amazing experience to see it come to life and to work with such talented individuals. The mural has truly brought a new energy to our office.

Jennifer echoed these sentiments, adding, “The collaborative nature of this project has been inspiring. It’s allowed us to express our values in a new and creative way. The mural is a striking and meaningful piece of art that speaks volumes about who we are as a company.”

There was also a unique contribution to the mural from Chilufya’s two daughters. When shown images of the mural, their first question was, “Where are the unicorns and mermaids?” As a delightful addition, if you look very closely, you will see a unicorn and a mermaid subtly worked into the mural by the artists. This charming detail adds a whimsical touch to the artwork, making it even more special.

We hope this mural will inspire everyone who passes by our office. It stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to sustainability and our love for Johannesburg. We invite everyone to come and see it for themselves, to feel the energy and passion that went into creating it, and to join us in celebrating this milestone in our journey.
