DALeast is a Chinese born artist that lives and works in Capetown, South Africa. The 29-year-old, who keeps his real name a secret, has been making art since he was three. His unusual paintings, which are sometimes hundreds of feet across, look three dimensional and appear to have been created out of thousands of tiny metal shards. He has tagged walls on nearly every continent, from Cape Town, Melbourne, New York and London, as well as his native China.
During the Los Muros Hablan Festival in Peurto Rico last year (2013), several artists including Conor Harrington, Jaz and SA’s Faith47 took some time to visit the dangerous, crime-ridden area of La Perla. They painted new murals in this strangely beautiful district, outside of main street art event.
