STREET WALL ART (article first published : 1999-12-20)

The Independent on Saturday invites all young artists to “paint a blank canvas of a street wall in Durban.” The most arresting design stands to win a R10 000 arts bursary for the artist in question. Molovuso Holdings and Nedbank Property Division have sponsored this bursary at a recognised tertiary institution as part of their innovative Art Against Crime Project.

The competition is aimed at all artists aged between 18 and 30 who will be required to brighten up the Broad Street Satellite Police Station with street murals along the theme of My Community Hero. “The progressive police station has set aside six panels for these murals which will be a constant reminder that the community and the police can and should work together,” says the Independent on Saturday. “Let’s not be too literal on the subject of community heroes as you have the freedom of your imagination to cartoonise your community hero or be confidently abstract about it.”

Artists should submit an A4 size replica of the mural they would paint. These should be delivered to: Art Against Crime competition, Marketing Department, Ground Floor, The Independent on Saturday, 18 Osborne Street in Greyville. Entries must include name, address and phone numbers as well as a short CV and a photostat copy of the front page of the artist’s identity document. Entries close on January 31, 2000,
