Enjoy walking in this small neighbourhood built in the late 1800s for Cape Town’s growing industries. The striking, yet varied murals, were mostly created during five annual International Public Art Festivals; even in 2020 with COVID there were artists from Italy, Brazil and France, as well as different parts of South Africa. Local artists and graffiti writers continually add new murals and graffiti, some with strong political and religious content.
There are about 130 artworks, ranging from the colossal to the tiny. I select the most popular and representative ones.
Do join me for supper afterwards at Nolz cafe/restaurant, Salt Orchard (authentic, well priced, food and wine)
