Yes ! Finally it is his turn ! Because we oh so adore these elephants in the streets of every city in every country in every corner of the world… and hopefully one day we can invite him to our city to immerse us with his vivid, larger-than-life characters and creations ! Stunning street art lovers, this #wednesdaywalloffame is especially dedicated to Falke One !


«Save Arrival» © Falke One 


«Bitten of too much» © Falke One 

Having already more than 25years of experience in the field of graffiti and street art, he is definitely one of the graff-pioneers in South Africa to determine its role and course. Amidst Mitchells Plain he tried out his very first piece only and only to impress ; )


«Headstrong» © Falke One 

Nonetheless he also got involved in the first graffiti competition in South Africa back in 1996. Something that would be repeated moreover all-over.


«Homer» © Falke One 

And then those incredible, a little psychedelic colourful, sketchy elephants. They truly stand for a sense of happiness as well as awareness about their constant threat to extinction ! 


«Self Defense» © Falke One 

But one of the main reasons – amongst many – we admire his dedication, is also his view on graffiti as a «dynamic social tool». Knowing how to get sponsors engaged into social responsible community projects, he aims at empowering disadvantaged neighbourhoods. Determined in featuring issues like genderequality, racism, environmental consciousness, and creating awareness about art as a form sustainability.


«The apple doesn’t fall» © Falke One 

One of those examples, with the major support of Red Bull, is «Once upon a Town». This social art project aimed at painting homes in towns all over the country, at first mainly in rural deprived areas. Challenging the perception of value… the value of a home… their homes that are left unnoticed for so long. He shows in every kind of way a huge respect to the locals, inviting them into his world of creations and being invited into their world of cultural traditions and stories. A beautiful example of «how art affects the people and how the people inspire the artist»

Got inspired to check out more? Have a look at his website, facebook as well as his journey Once upon a Town !

Let’s find all the possible ways to invite him to Portugal and share our favourite elephants of him with our #lisbonstreetarttours  ; )

miss vandal VII

She shouts out for attention in an unapologetic way demanding the reflection upon our beliefs and behaviours. «To be born with a woman’s body is to bear the unsolicited burden of humanity’s unresolved attitudes towards sex […]»

miss vandal V

MissMe or Montreal’s most known Art Vandal even passed Lisbon with some wicked and wonderful paste ups all kind of women as role models and covering/revealing one way or another their boobs in playful ways. But also respected and honourable characters form the main inspiration for her to go out there and share them with anyone who wants to see and everyone who won’t see.

miss vandal IV

She is an activist, feminist, and a recognized outlaw artist demanding attention and exploring her own struggles with race, gender, society and class… screaming out for dignity amongst all.

miss vandal III PussylluminatiNYC1

«My work is just a counter voice to that ultra-simplistic and oppressive voice of traditional media and advertising.»
