Obilasci ulične umjetnosti
This is a great tour for groups and team experiences especially team building exercises, they gain alot of ways on how to expand their worldly scopes on a daily basis, and multiple levels of how creativity is used beyond the art of drawing, and learning expressions in different forms. On this Street art walk i pay dedicated attention to the world of graffiti, i focus on different levels of graffiti and share unique aspects that are invisible to people who don’t have any affiliation to the art world of the streets. Visitors get a wider knowledge of why the graffiti artist are motivated to do what they do as i give you an in depth explanation of some of the pieces. Graffiti artist are now formal and informal revivers to derelict spaces around Joburg or wherever there's a seemingly mundane culture, with rich stories and history that no one pays attention to. Street art fills up the void, it is that missing culture that is needed to bring life to an environment, it is an expression of thoughts in imagery and the freedom of different minds, who express themselves through spray painting walls and telling different stories. I've been a part of the 4 elements of the hip-hop movement from a very young age so you'll be walking with an insider. Other things to note Please note that this is a walking experience in the Johannesburg city center.
