Understanding the Beltline Fish Mural

There’s a cartoon-style mural underneath a bridge on the Beltline’s Eastside Trail that depicts dozens of fish accompanied by what appear to be Chinese text. It looks good and all, but its meaning isn’t all that clear.
Brandon Sadler, the artist responsible for the mural, responded to‘s queries and gave a rather deep interpretation of the art. He went on to describe the big fish as a representation of the Beltline while the smaller fish depicted Atlantans. The Chinese-like text accompanying the mural say something meaningful as well, such as this line that goes, “Let’s travel to new places and meet new faces filled with light.”’s interview with Sadler could be found on their site:
