For 2023, the annual On the Fence exhibition artists have aimed their lenses onto the cityscape; turning their gaze to the colourful murals that brighten every corner of the city and setting their focus on the artists that create the work. These photographers peer behind the mural to learn more about the artists behind the art and the worlds that they inhabit.
