Banksy’s Art isn’t The Only Art in CapeTown.

Twitter was a blaze a few weeks ago when the city thought Banksy was in town. Even if he was, how would we know?! Unless he was responsible for defacing the Kloof Street McDonalds earlier this year, and I doubt he would have wasted his time there with the castle having so many glorious walls to alter.

Banksy’s art, however, is in Cape Town along with a dozen other world famous ‘street’ artists. 34 Fine Art in Woodstock is hosting “Outside”, an exhibition of Urban Street art.

Mr Brainwash of “Exit Through the Gift Shop” documentary fame is featured along side Banksy and although the work of these two artists are world famous, I’m actually interested in learning about other street artists, particularly South African street artists.

I have yet to get to the exhibition but WILL be attending this week, as it’s the last week. The exhibit closes on November 19th, if you studied art in school, love street art or are proudly South Africa, take a turn and support local exhibition houses.

“People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish. But that’s only if it’s done properly.” – Banksy
