City of Golden people.

The piece for this years City Of Gold festival  was inspired by ancient African Mask imagery and the rich sunsets of Africa. Johannesburg's sunsets are amazing in the way that light bounces off the buildings and create rich warm tones. During the creation of this piece many people came to stop by and comment and it's become quite a talking point in the Braamfontein district.
Special big ups to the students at Rosebank College who came to chat about the design, the universe and whether we are alone on this earth. More of that in the next blog. For more Graf related stuff check out www.cityofgoldfestival.co.za for the full line up.
