    Kaapse klopse by page33, Zesta, Linus and Spear

    Pay wave

    Can you see the murals up ahead on the left? As we move along this street you'll encounter “Kaap se Klopse”, a collaboration between two South Africans, Page33 and Zesta. Further on, alongside this work is another by two Belgians, Linus and Spear.

    The first mural illustrates a multifaceted story, depicting actual residents in a humorous light, dealing with the 2018 Cape Town water crisis. Stay here while I tell you a bit about it.

    In the mural, all the instruments are replaced with water storing equipment such as bottles or buckets.

    The presence of the Flamingos is quite sarcastic because Flamingos usually gravitate towards wet areas and wouldn't be caught in a drought.

    The mural even makes reference the to the rigid Cape Town by laws that usually discourage street art.

    At the end of this series of works we reach an inscription stating “Kom droe of nat mond, ons gaan lekker lag” which means with a dry or a wet mouth, we’ll have a good laugh.

    Let's keep going. Turn left at the T-junction ahead and keep going. I tell you more about the four Swift Street artists on the way.

    This quartet, all from different backgrounds came together in perfect harmony, producing one of the most conversational murals for this year’s festival. Attention to composition paid off through their witty, relatable showpiece.
