The Bo-Kaap. A Cape Town colourful treasure in the heart of the most dreariest of buildings; this community of Cape Townians have managed to create the most beautiful landscape by painting their houses colours of pure vibrant solidity.
Our task these next two weeks is to reflect this geometric abstraction on the walls and concrete of Vista High School - a school found just a few streets from the original inspiration.
I teamed up with two great friends of mine and together we are tackling the staircase.
Basing our idea around the colour of the sheltering above the stairwell (a Colbert blue), We are usingtrompe l’oielto create the illusion of a gradation waterfall cascading down each step.
Day 1 went very well, we have completed about one fifth of our project - cannot wait to see what it’ll look like on Friday!
