10TH TO 19TH FE­BRU­ARY

IN­TER­NA­TIONAL PUB­LIC ART FES­TI­VAL, SALT RIVER, CAPE TOWN

The In­ter­na­tional Pub­lic Art Fes­ti­val (IPAF), an ini­tia­tive by NGO Baz-Art, gives both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional artists the op­por­tu­nity to show­case their sto­ries, skills and styles in real time and on a global plat­form. IPAF’s main aim is to cre­ate aware­ness of pub­lic art, bridge the gap be­tween fine art and street art, and use it as a medium to ed­u­cate, up­lift and in­spire the pub­lic. With “We Need Na­ture” as the theme this year, all of the artists plan to bring sub­jects of re­cy­cling, green is­sues, global warm­ing and the cur­rent Western Cape wa­ter cri­sis to the fore, all while cel­e­brat­ing the beauty of na­ture. As well as watch­ing th­ese paint­ings come to life, vis­i­tors will also be able to par­tic­i­pate in spray-paint­ing work­shops and at­tend guided tours run by street art spe­cial­ists.
