The International Public Arts Festival (IPAF) – one of Africa’s largest and most anticipated public arts festivals took place recently producing a dazzling array of captivating art murals from top South African and overseas talent. 

Festival organiser Lauren Fletcher says there was a strong focus on sustainability and promoting Cape Town as a creative force in the global arena. “We had a fantastic range of artworks, with each artist depicting their own creative and personal version of 100% Sustainability.” 

For this special fifth edition of the IPAF, their motto was: walk, run or cycle it! “Even though the festival has ended, visitors will still be able to discover the best street and public art pieces the city has to offer. If you’ve missed the IPAF, we encourage you to do a DIY tour by downloading our tour maps and explore the latest IPAF murals that paint a fascinating picture of Cape Town and Africa at large”, says Baz-Art co-founder, Alexandre Tilmans.  

Here are the walls from the IPAF 2021:
