Silent Shepherds was painted in February 2018 by artist Reubzz and depicts the Bondi Lifeguards made famous by Bondi Rescue. Painting the piece took three days using spray cans – he sketched it up with a black posca pen.
Reubzz said about this piece:
My concept for the Bondi wall was to photograph two of the iconic Bondi Rescue Lifeguards in a pose just before they rush off to save someones life. I visited the tower and was lucky enough to meet Corey and Chris who were on duty that day. I showed them some of my previous work and they were happy to oblige. My idea was to have them as the silent sheppards watching over the beach. They are a pivotal part of today’s beach culture and make us all feel safe to swim at Bondi.
