Description

This tour is all about learning and going deeper into the Graffiti and Street Art culture of the City! Guests will learn about the difference AND relationship between Graffiti and Street Art, while also getting a better idea of some of the city's most iconic Graffiti Writers/Artists and Street Artists! The tour starts in the colourful Braamfontein Precinct which is full of large and small Street Art murals all across it's walls - in this area, we learn a bit more about the impact of Street Art on the development of this area from 2003! While in Braamfontein, we make a stop at the local Graffiti Store where the local artists get all their supplies - it's also a great opportunity for you to engage with Graffiti beyond what you see on the walls i.e. guests can buy merchandise designed by local Graffiti Artists or step into the exhibition room when there's works on the walls etc.! From Braamfontein, we head over to Newtown which is the spiritual home of arts and culture in the inner city - with a history dating back to 1886, this area has always been a part of the city's underground movement and is rich in Graffiti with some of the city's best Graffiti found here! We end our tour in the vibrant Maboneng Precinct! Just like Braamfontein, Maboneng is blessed with a beautiful collection of Murals and Art all across its walls - from intricate works by international artists to the well known tags of local Graffiti Writers, this area is a hub of street culture in the inner city! Johannesburg is blessed with some amazing Street Art and Graffiti, this tour aims to give context to these wonderful works while celebrating one of the best parts about living in Johannesburg i.e. the vibrant and diverse street culture found all across its roads and pavements! The cultural diversity of Johannesburg is reflected in its arts and artists - from block to block, the city changes, creating a rich and exciting outdoor canvas for it's artists to share a bit of their world with us! *NOTE! We sometimes invite a Graffiti Artist to join on this tour - Subject to their Availability i.e. there's no guarantee that they'll be available or join on your scheduled date...it's entirely up to them if they want to join or not!
