SPECIAL TRIBUTE TO THE WOMEN OF SOUTH AFRICA
Location: Maboneng, Johannesburg, South Africa
Client: Platoon by Apple
Agency: In house
Platoon celebrates Women Of South Africa during Women's Month in August 2020.
The mural represents well-renowned activist and feminine musicians; Zolani Mahola, Nozuko 'ZU' Mapoma, Kanyi Mavi, Mila Smith, Ami Faku, Msaki, Azana and Zoe Modiga, and forms part of a series by Baz-Art. The artwork and associated music playlist aims to shed light on the current gender-based violence backdrop of South Africa.
The carefully selected female musicians, by Platoon, are women who publicly make their voices heard on matters vital to their everyday lives. By using these strong personalities, the idea is to give women of all sizes, shape, colour and sexuality the courage to be themselves.
