Muizenberg street-art

One think I love about running (yes I know I have said this many times) is seeing the world around me. I run back-roads that I don’t usually travel in my car, and I have so much more time to see that world around me.

Today I am going to share you a collection of photos I have built up of some of the walls in Muizenberg. Every photo was taken on a run going through the Muizenberg community. Walls can be so boring, so if you have to have high walls, the community in Muizenberg have found ways to make them more interesting.

This bird is literally flying out of the spray can. And I love the way the artist was using graffiti to paint graffiti and end up with a beautiful piece of art.

Here is a somewhat glued-together origami bird.

And just around the corner of the origami bird is…another origami bird.

Praying mantis on a Protea (the Protea is the national flower of South Africa).

This last wall reminds me of MC Escher’s etchings, and you can see that painter has left his phone number if you want to give him a shout.

    I am going to have to take a few detours and add the missing photos to the blog.

    I love these, I am busy saving for a second one on my outside wall, I already have the frog which you definitely need to have a look at and include (he was painted by Serge who did most of the other ones you have photographed). I have a second even better one on the wall next to my swimming pool :)

      Hi Deb

      How does one get hold of Serge. I have long admired the paintings and would love to get one myself.
