A look into the ever-evolving graffiti scene in Cape Town that focuses on the city’s elusive graffiti writers and how the scene has been affected by recent by-laws passed by the City of Cape Town. Painting Cape Town gets into the minds of the men behind the names that they take on, exploring the relationship between the city and the artists. Established figures within the subculture such as Falko and Wealz130 share their experiences of the consuming passion to paint the surfaces of the city.
