FALKO in SOWETOhttp://www.brooklynstreetart.com/theblog/2014/04/19/tuesday-kliptown-soweto-south-africa-people-color-art/Today we take you to Kliptown and Soweto in South Africa where we find artists Falko and Rasty collaborating and ethnographer/photographer Martha Cooper capturing the action of the painters, as well as the games and color of the streets."Kliptown seems to be stuck in time," say Pybus of the historic town that retains much of it character but could use help with its infrastructure. "It is situated opposite a historical square and an upmarket hotel in Soweto in the city of Johannesburg. In the 1950’s Kliptown became famous as it is where the Freedom Charter was written, the document that formed the basis of the our current constitution. Now in 2014, it is a somewhat forgotten place across the tracks, filled with families trying to makes ends meet,Image Falko at work. (photo © Rowan Pybus @makhulu_)
