After 23 years as a graffiti artist, FALKO is generally seen as an integral part of the foundation and development of South Africa’s graffiti scene.
After a short attempt of studying graphic design, Falko decided to perfect the art form that kept him occupied during his years at high school. His work soon became a recognized feature around the Cape Flats, and eventually around the country.
In a project called Once Upon a Town, Falko collaborates with Red Bull South Africa to travel to small towns across the country and paint some walls.
“The reason why I come to small towns specifically, is because small towns need it the most”, says the artist. “I’m not coming in to save lives, I’m not coming here to preach, I’m not coming here to tell you to get an education. It’s not forced.”
