Salt River’s street art has been transformed by February’s festival working on over 100 murals.

Our outside walking tour begins at Yes Ma’am, Shelley Rd, Salt River, led by street artist and educator Jason Redman (Dfeatonce). It will focus on work produced by artists, from near and far, who participate in the annual international street art festival and his own work. Based in Cape Town, Dfeat Once began street art/graffiti painting in 1999, at high school. He won first prize at African Battle Cry at Grassy Park Civic Centre in 2002. Jason has worked with both local and international street artists on projects and festivals in both Joburg and Cape Town. “Practice makes perfect” was a project he started at Queenspark High School, Woodstock, to inspire students to hold fast to their aspirations. He as taught art to primary school children, including at Design Indaba 2010. His work can be seen at Jason Bakery (Bree St), Amandla Edu Football’s offices (Salt River), a park in Elsies River and, of course, the streets of Salt River. Jason has regularly led tours here for Coffee Bean Routes’ international clients. He assisted Mak1one led the last Street Art Culture Connect in January.
