On bakery walls, buildings and roadside sheeting in South Sudan's capital, Juba, street artists fed up with war are painting for peace as young musicians, actors and artists campaign to end decades of conflict.

A mural of a child in a singlet working at a sewing machine reads "the young who are tired are the ones who will sew the fabric of our nation back together."

A whitewashed bakery wall features stark silhouettes wielding axes while a container doubling up as a cultural center shows an AK-47 shooting doves instead of bullets.
