Form­ing part of Halls SA’s Own the Mo­ment brand cam­paign, cre­ative stu­dio Mrs + Mr Luke trans­formed eight bus shelters in Jo’burg us­ing vi­brant colour, pat­tern and line work. The duo, which con­sists of Faa­timah Mo­hamed-Luke – an artist known for her use of plas­tic build­ing blocks – and Al Luke, a mixed-me­dia de­signer and the owner of Black­sheep De­sign Stu­dios, wanted their in­stal­la­tions to of­fer an all-en­com­pass­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, both in­side and out­side. ‘Art exhibition­s are usu­ally seen as elite or pri­vate events, and we wanted to cre­ate that same in­ti­macy and at­ten­tion to de­tail for the viewer in the pub­lic sphere,’ says Al. ‘Our hope is that we‘ll see more pub­lic art com­mis­sions on this scale to in­spire fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. Good art and de­sign should be some­thing we live with and en­joy ev­ery day. They shouldn‘t be con­fined to spe­cific spa­ces and au­di­ences.’
