See The City Get New Ink: 5 Days Of Live Street Art

Walk around Salt River and see the public art count go to over 100

We’re sure you’ve noticed that Salt River has a lot of graffiti on its walls. This isn’t the work of vandals, but the product of the annual International Public Arts Festival.

The festival will be making the city its canvas again on 12–16 February 2020. Check out the skills of local and international artists who will be beautifying Salt River through painting large murals, and bond with locals while you admire the artworks. 

WATCH: MURALS IN CAPE TOWN

The organisers are passionate about street art and seeing the positive effect murals can have on residents, citizens and visitors. 

This is the fourth edition of the festival and it will bring the number of murals in the area to over 100. To ensure existing artworks remain beautiful, this year artists will return to refresh some old murals and  a few pieces will be replaced.
