Elephant Graffiti Art In South Africa To Give People Hope
Cape Town graffiti artist Falko painted his way across South Africa. His mission? To change the locals’ perception of value. The project, called “Once Upon A Town,” was photographed by Luke Daniel.
“Add a little paint and it’s not just a scruffy shack any more,” Falko told the Red Bull crew. “It’s a shack with artwork on it, part of a huge open-air art gallery. It changes everyone’s perception.”
Falko has been on the graffiti scene since 1988, when he painted his first wall at Westridge High School in Mitchell’s Plain, and is “regarded as an integral part of the foundation and development of South Africa’s graffiti scene.” As to why he chose elephants as his trademark? Falko hasn’t given a clear answer, but maybe you can find some clues by checking out some of his art!
