Also taking place in Cape Town this weekend is the launch of the Converse Sneakers Clash.
Inspired by the bright colours and elevated silhouettes of the Winter 2014 Converse All Star sneaker collection, the Converse Sneaker Clash will come to life through the Wall of Clash activation, designed to disrupt the monotony of a grey world through the use of bright and colourful expression.
Through the Wall of Clash, street artists will combine their various graphic styles and techniques, in a clash of design and collaboration, to bring pieces to life in unexpected locations, with followers of @Converse_Africa able to make suggestions on what to paint through social media.
Taking place on Saturday the 28th of February, follow @Converse_Africa and #ClashWall #CT for tracking.
