Graffiti: SWEST in Tanzania

By - Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

South African writer Swest tours around the city of Dar es Salam, Tanzania painting the walls of impoverished homes, among other surfaces. His murals often capture the attention of the local media and have sparked efforts to aid some families. Whilst his characters are by no means original, Swest’s letter styles and perception seem quite on point. The myriad of colours seen in most of his pieces would suggest that he works mostly with scrap cans. Whilst not the first writer to visit Tanzania and take advantage of lax laws and paint-friendly locals, Swest is quickly becoming the most prolific writer in Dar es Salaam. For more of Swest’s work, visit his Tumblr.
