Graffiti South Africa The definitive African graffiti and street art website.

PICS \\ City of Gold Fest 2015 Overview

The 2015 City of Gold Urban Art Festival is done and dusted, and was one of the best yet! Big ups to Rasty & company, and all the sponsors, for pulling off a great graffiti event and putting South Africa on the world map once again.

The festival has been running for the past five years and takes place in Johannesburg with both local graffiti artists and international guest artists. We thoroughly enjoyed all events throughout the week, from the press launch and street art tour by Past Experiences, to both the exhibition openings - the official City of Gold exhibition and Mars’ Vivacity solo show, as well as the closing doodle session in collaboration with Night of 1000 Drawings.
