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…
A graffiti and street art exhibition taking place this Thursday, followed by the Montana ‘Just Writing My Name’ graffiti jam over the weekend.
The third annual City of Gold Urban Art Festival kicked off last Sunday with a bang! The launch was held at Grayscale Gallery featuring works by local artists and some of the international participants.
Pose (MSK Crew, USA) painted live at the launch alongside Kevin Love and Cureo. Unfortunately style master Revok (MSK) could not make it here to South Africa.
Pose, Love and Cureo:

The exhibition will be the first of its kind in South Africa, bringing together highly respected artists from around the world and pioneers of the local graffiti scene. Featuring a broad spectrum of artists and styles, audiences will experience the dynamic and versatile nature of this misunderstood art form.
The exhibition will be open to the public every day for the week of the festival (10am - 5pm) closing with a walkabout on Saturday 21 April at 12 Noon.
