Roger Williams from Cape Town is well known around the globe with many international accolades. In South Africa he is just ‘known’ …….. here and there.
Last weekend I witnessed Roger and his assistant Nick here in the village engaged in a wall painting. Not finished yet (see last picture) but you can see the finished wall from October onwards when tasting wine in the new tasting room in a winery/restaurant (name is mentioned in the last image). As you can see the ghost comes out of the bottle.
All images are perishable but “everything you can imagine is real” (Pablo Picasso). These imaginaries are real as my imagination is but both are perishable.
This first imaginary wood painting -out of a serie of 5- is the entrance of the estate of Robert Stanford (after whom our village is named) as how it might have looked 150 years or so ago.
Some name it murals most others say it’s graffiti and there are also people who call it street art.
Paintings are perishable and so are wall paintings, graffiti, murals etc. I’m not a painter but I can photoshop a little bit hence my Imaginary Street Art (or is it ‘Imaginary Murals’ etc.?).
I don’t have any illusions; even my imagination is perishable.
This is the last of the imaginaries out of a serie of 10.
