Sea Walls SA is bringing ocean awareness to the streets of Cape Town through giant art installations

The PangeaSeed Foundation has announced a list of 11 South African and three international mural artists to participate in the Cape Town leg of their renowned public art programme Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans.

Sea Walls: South Africa, presented by the Save Our Seas Foundation, starts Monday 6 November when a visceral procession of ocean creatures and flora will begin to appear on the side of 14 buildings around Cape Town to make an indelible mark in the fight to protect our oceans.

Heading to Cape Town for the inaugural Sea Walls project in Africa will be Antonio Segura, aka DULK, a native of Spain famous for his surreal depictions of threatened animals. DULK and Germany’s Yeye Weller, whose powerful cartoon style has attracted clients such as Warner Bros and the New York Times, will join Si Omar (aka Cracked Ink), the British street artist based in New Zealand known for his character-based, monochromatic creations.

DULK, Weller and Cracked Ink will join top South African artists Amy Lee Tak, Aweh Migo, Breeze Yoko, Care One, DBongz, Marie-Louise Koen, Marti Lund, Sonny Behan, Stefan Smit, and Dirty Native Njabulo Hlophe to add more works to PangeaSeed’s network of more than 500 murals in 19 countries created by more than 400 artists utilising the motto: A Drop of Paint Can Create an Ocean of Change.

Apart from the actual work in locations such as Gardens, Kalk Bay, Newlands, Muizenberg, Cape Town CBD, and Salt River, visitors can enjoy a week-long, free-to-the-public programme that includes a youth outreach at local schools, a coastal cleanup, and self-guided driving tours to the murals.
