The International Public Art Festival – IPAF

SALT RIVER ART DISTRICT

THE CAPE TOWN SUBURB OF SALT RIVER IS SITUATED BETWEEN OBSERVATORY AND WOODSTOCK. IT IS A PREDOMINANTLY INDUSTRIAL SUBURB WITH A HOST OF CLOTHING AND TEXTILE FACTORIES, THE LION MATCH FACTORY AND THE SNOWFLAKE FLOUR TOWERS LOOMING OVER THE LANDSCAPE.

CHANGES AFOOT
Because of its convenient location, proximity to the CBD and heritage architecture, this area, previously a lower-middle class suburb, is now also attracting young professionals, workers and students of all backgrounds.

Recently upgraded old buildings such as the Junction Hotel, the Locomotive Hotel and the Bridge Mansions still display the historical roots of the suburb.

WORK TO BE DONE
But there is a lot of ground to catch up after local factories were badly hit by deindustrialisation in late 80’s, which led to a downturn in local fortunes, tenancy and morale. By bringing internationally recognized Art to the streets of Salt River IPAF will rejuvenate houses, buildings, schools and businesses – bringing renewed pride, morale, hope and income to the residents.

THE TIME IS NOW
We believe that the IPAF will perfectly unite and inspire this cosmopolitan mixture of residents and new businesses opportunities. After the recent revamps of the Pals Building, part of the Salt River Village, and other initiatives, we feel that the time has come for Salt River to enter a brighter new era.

    2 days ago by i_support_street_art Sabotaje Al Montaje, the artist who has lived all his life on the Canarian Sea is particularly sensitive to the environmental issues. On this wall, created in Lecce for  @167bstreet  , he focused on the problem of water pollution. The monumental representation of a man watching his fish highlights the presence of plastic caps caught by the sea instead of fishes.  #167b   #isupportstreetart   #167artproject   #thestreetisourgallery   #sabotajealmontaje   #walls   #streetart   #picoftheday   #muraloftheday   #urbanart   #lecce   #streetartlecce   #beautifulartwork
