Once Upon A Town | Falko’s Journey Through South Africa


Falko’s street art has taken him from his beloved Cape Town to Singapore, Dubai and beyond. In search of something closer to home, the internationally renowned graffiti artist has just embarked on a journey across South Africa with Red Bull and will leave his mark in colourful murals in each of the towns, small dorpies and informal settlements he visits. In this way, he hopes to use his art to change the locals’ perception of value.


Originally Falko was to begin his journey with a stop at Riebeek Kasteel but after a last minute change of plans, he arrived in the small farming town of Riebeek West instead. His next destination point is Garies but after that, his trip remains unplanned  – if you’d like him to swing by your own town to give it a fresh coat of paint, post a picture to Twitter or Instagram using the tag #PaintMyTown.

Photographer Luke Daniel will be documenting Falko’s journey and blogging from the road. Catch Part 1 about their time in Riebeek West. The video team is David East and Deon Van Zyl.
