In the spirit of taking art into the streets and onto the walls of the Mother City the Nando’s Accidental Art initiative have planned an pop-up Instawalk route through Cape Town for today only. In between Nando’s Long Street and Nando’s Kloof Street there are 5 pop-up and permanent art installations. So if you’re in town today pop out of the office and take a walk up or down Kloof Street and Long Street to see the artworks, which include two massive murals by Xolile Mtakatya and Liza Grobler, a cross-stitched fence by Xx_CPT, a hashtag-activated gif exhibition by Thingking and a large optical illusion picture by Max Mogale. You won’t miss them easily but just incase here’s what to look out for and where:
Nando’s Long Street, corner Waterkant Street.
A pop-up cross-stitched fence by Xx_CPT.
134 Long Street, in between Wale Street and Dorp Street.
An interactive LED gif exhibition by designer/makers Thingking. It’s Instagram-activated, so if you use #artonfire and #wdc522 the image on the screen will change.
150 Long Street, outside the #WDC008 Pop-up Space.
An anamorphic street art installation in a ‘Zebrating’ style by photographer Max Mogale titled Sisonke (meaning “We Are One”). This 2x1m mural is made from an image that has been split across pine planks. When viewed from just the right angle the stripes merge together to form a whole picture.
23 Kloof Street, on the facade of the CityLife Cape Town Baptist Church.
Nando’s Kloof Street, corner Park Road.
Remember to use #artonfire and #wdc522 to add your pictures to the Instagram gallery.
