As mentioned in a previous post, Once Upon A Town is the new “splitpiece” graffiti project by Cape Town’s Falko One. This time he brought Rasty along and the two have aimed to paint 40 murals in ten days to create ten splitpieces!
Although it has been raining quite a bit in the town of Pella in the Western Cape, the two should be finished off very soon. We can’t wait to see the completed splitpieces because the murals are looking hella tight on their own…

The concept of Splitpiece is to join photographs of artworks that have been created on different walls, forming one whole picture that has diverse backgrounds. The theory behind this concept, created by Falko, is to create unity. This is a unique idea and Falko has been creating more exciting murals with Nard in the small town of Darling.
New murals will be revealed on his Flickr photostream this week. All the murals are in one residential street - Akkerboom Laan - and form a living gallery like no other.
The online exhibition, Mirror On The Wall, has launched today…
The exhibition is a showcase of new murals done in Philipi, Cape town by Falko and Nard over the last 30 days.
Mirror On The Wall is an online exhibition of new murals by Falko and Nard.

Falko is back in the small town of Darling (about 75km from Cape Town) to paint more splitpieces. Having recently been there for his project “The Darling Made Me Do It” in February, he is back again for part two: “Sportscene Made Me Do It In Darling”.
With the help of fellow artists Jadas, Nardstar and Seth, the aim is to create 8 splitpieces and 27 individual murals in close proximity, thus turning this residential area into a vibrant living gallery.
The splitpiece is an original and groundbreaking development in the graffiti world. The concept of splitpiece is to take one image and divide it into 3-8 sections. Each section is painted in a different area and each of these sections stands alone as an artwork, with its own meaning, in its respective location. Once all sections are completed the photographs of the various sections are brought together to make one fully comprehensive image.
We’re looking forward to seeing the completed images. Previous splitpiece projects have been really mind blowing. Great to see stuff like this happening in our country as it gives artists a chance to share their thoughts and visions with smaller communities and it also unites people in an entirely new way.
All splitpieces are being produced for a future book and the living gallery of Akkerboom street in Darling can be marketed as a tourist attraction.
