Crocosmia flowers painted on the substation on Grosvenor Crescent in Durban North. Check it out 👀💥 These little wildflowers found in my wonderful local KZN also called 'falling stars', are quite small, about 4cm in diameter. They are the most vibrant orange when in flower which makes them visible from a distance. Next time you see a burst of colour, have a look what it is 😍 Big thanks to the @envirofixersdurbannorth for getting me to paint another artwork for the public of Durban 💚💚💚 #artonthestreet #muralart #durbanart #southafricanart #crocosmia #envirofixers #paintings #artist #durbanartist #southafricanartist #durbanstreetart #durbannorth #durban #durbanvibes
Amethyst Sunbird couple on Aloe flowers. On corner of Beachway and Stirling Cres in Durban North.
I love the symbiosis in the relationships in nature. These gorgeous birds drink nectar of flowers and pollenate the flowering plants at the same time. Its a win win. They are also very cute and zoot around at a rapid rate and often travel in a pair. I have a pair that has been loving the flowering plants outside my bedroom window. They are so small and so it is truly a blessing to observe them closely in their element.
A huge thank you to the amazing people at @envirofixersdurbannorth for organising another absolutely awesome wall for another one of my artworks. It is an honour to work with you on making Durban North a better place!

These photos show some of the process of me painting one of my favourite murals so far this year. This 3 story tall artwork is inspired by my favourite beach in KZN-Treasure beach and is painted on the WESSA Treasure Beach education center on Treasure Beach. This organisation does amazing work by educating children about our marvellous ocean and also hosts amazing beach cleanups that really makes a big difference to the life that lives there. --- I am often in the water at Treasure Beach, usually surfing and on several occasions have seen turtles popping their golden eyes out of the water to check us out. It is a truly magical experience to share their home with them, even for just a brief moment. We don't see these majestic creatures in their home habitat very often, if ever, so I wanted to bring attention to this wonderful reptile. In the past few months, several sea turtles have washed up dead on our beaches... Plastic pollution in the ocean is a huge threat to Sea Turtles in particular because they often mistake plastic for a food source, such as plastic packets waving in the water like jellyfish. This blocks their digestion and slowly kills them. I illustrated a packet, disguised amongst jellyfish to show this visual connection. (Top right) The bottom of the mural is inspired by the beautiful and biodiverse reef that is among the most amazing features of the beach. This was painted mainly by Daniel Nel . Thanks so much to him for his helping hands on this painting.--- Treasure Beach is not a main beach so it gets overlooked by authorities. Often the litter situation on this beach can be heartbreaking. Thanks to Wessa and their amazing team they are putting a lot of effort into bringing light to this area and resolving the issues that occur there.
Thanks so much to Balwin Foundation, Goscor Access Rentals and Wessa Treasure Beach for making this amazing project possible. A big thanks also to @c.a.m.s_life for making an amazing edit of this which can be see on the previoous video post on facebook. Www.facebook.com/giffyartist/videos/2263404827277635/
Last week I painted this garden inspired mural in a beautiful kitchen and home in Glenwood. 🍃 #muralart #natureart #nature #natureart #artist #durbanartist #southafricanartist #durbanhasmore #muralartist #southafricanstreetart #montanacans
Earlier this week I painted a collaboration mural with @mook_lion @k3vseven and visiting artist from Toronto @emilymayrose 🐸 I painted a turtle stuck in the shark nets. The nets in and around Durban are marine life murderers. They indiscriminately kill marine life, including turtles, dolphins and rays, let alone sharks. The statistics on the Sharks Board website are truly shocking. Hundreds of turtles have died in these very nets. With all the research into sharks and their behaviour combined with modern technology, there are less destructive and more effective ways of keeping sharks away from bathing zones. This artwork is a reminder about what happens behind the scenes and is a tribute to the thousands of animals that died, stuck in these nets. 💚
First wall for the year. ⭐ A really fun big silver graff piece. Painting letters is what got me hooked on painting walls. A few years ago I stopped painting letters as much as I used to. I found painting nature subjects more of a challenge. I love throwing myself in the deep end in life, challenging myself. So I have become obsessed with painting natural subject matter. But graff letters have always been a life love for me! I think the reason I slowed down with them is because I painted them so much that they became too easy -they weren't enough of a challenge. But they are a lot of fun to paint, especially after not painting them so often. The process is so much fun. This is what I have grown to learn again, or be reminded of. Creating your own letters leaves you in a matrix of complete freedom and possibility. There is no wrong shape. There is no wrong way to make them... They are an embodiment of your creative energy. They are the product of your mind. They are not a replication of anything. They are you. They are freedom. Thanks so much to @mr.bzar and @bushywopp for the day painting in beautiful Cape Town! #graffiti #chrome #capetown #graffitisouthafrica

A thick barrel to big top turn is, and always has been my personal favourite combo in wave riding. The feeling of a waves' energy surging through you in this combo is next to nothing in my experience. This photo is from a pumping morning in an exclusive tropical paradise south of the harbour a while ago. Just love this pic by my big bro @byrongertze #treasurebeachcrew #bodyboarding #waveriding #tropicalparadise #durban #durbansurf
