Painting Cape Town, Graffiti from South Africa is the first book to cover the Cape Town graffiti scene in extensive detail, and is the first official graffiti book from South Africa! The book is focussed on interviews with over 20 of Cape Town’s most prolific and recognised graffiti writers such as Dek3 and Faith47.
The author of the book, Matthew Olckers, started photographing Cape Town graffiti in 2007. He shared his photographs on a blog named PaintingTheTown. Through the blog he was able to make contact with graffiti artists in the city.
In light of the increasing popularity of graffiti (and its close cousin Street Art) the aim of Painting Cape Town is to recognise the graffiti artists who have made an impact on the surfaces of the city through the quantity and quality of their work.
