The Wavescape Art Board Project
Cape Town's ocean culture is alive and well, and with summer finally here, the Wavescape Art Board project is capturing the appreciation and imagination of surfers and beachgoers alike. As part of the Wavescape Festival, this project brings together the love of surfing and a celebration of graphic artistry. Top South African artists, including Lionel Smit and Brett Murray, have decorated 11 surfboards that are on exhibition a stone’s throw from the ocean in Muizenberg, near Cape Town. The surfboard shape this year is a three-fin high performance shortboard. The boards will be sold at an auction on Tuesday 29 November at Tiger’s Milk, Muizenberg at 8pm. The ArtBoard project has been raising awareness and funds for ocean charities since 2005, notably NSRI, Shark Spotters and Waves For Change. Have a look at some of the artistic creations by leading local artists here.
