EVENT \\ Exhibition: Styles From The Streets

A graffiti and street art exhibition taking place this Thursday, followed by the Montana ‘Just Writing My Name’ graffiti jam over the weekend.

EVENT \\ Butan x Demolition Squad: High Above The Toys

The launch of the latest range of clothing by Butan Wear SA in collaboration with the Demolition Squad.

Maneuvering through the precarious streets of Johannesburg one can’t help but notice a particularly emphasised name: DEMOLITION SQUAD. Established in 1999, DS has undoubtedly become one of the most prolific graffiti crews in South Africa. The crew consists of five artists; TAPZ, MARS, TYKE, FIYA and AYBE, who have been flying the flag “high above the toys” since its inception. This garment was created by fusing street level graffiti knowledge with cutting edge street wear design, resulting in a piece of art that reflects not only our collective passion for street culture, but offers a unique perspective of our world through the eyes of our generation.”

Limited edition clothing including caps and T-shirts will be on sale on the evening. Get yours before they hit the shops.
