Cape Town – The more than 20 artists behind painting 100 murals in Delft were recognised in a ceremony at the Nelson Mandela Peace Park in Delft yesterday.
The murals stretch from Symphony Way in the west to Baleles Road in the north, Mallard Street in the east and Loma Street in the south.
The initiative was part of a larger landscape upgrade project to improve the aesthetic in Delft, by ARLA Consulting Landscape Architects, funded by the Western Cape Department of Human Settlements.
Since May, Delft residents have emblazoned their homes and that of their neighbours with their own artwork.
Resident Lennox Stozela, 63, said he was excited to participate in the project as it “invigorated” him with his own business.
