EVENT \\ Exhibition: Once Upon A Town

Internationally renowned street artist Falko returns home to Cape Town after embarking on a journey to share street art with the people of South Africa’s small towns, dorpies and settlements. The mission of this project, known as Once Upon A Town, was to uplift communities and change the locals’ perception of value and their surroundings.

The project was documented by photographer Luke Daniel and saw the two in far flung locations such at the Northern Cape’s Garies, the Western Cape’s Riebeek West and King Williams Town in the Eastern Cape, which has culminated in an exhibition of his most iconic and colorful murals.

Red Bull Studios in Cape Town will be showcasing these works, which feature some of the best street art he has painted in the various communities. The evening will also feature a Q&A session with Falko and Luke Daniel giving attendees a chance to delve deeper into the art and what it stands for.
