Above was kind enough to send 12oz the recently completed video of his project, of which he says
“While in Cape Town, South Africa last year I initiated an art project in the township of Lavender Hill, involving the community and especially the children of the area in the process.
The word UBUNTU is a southern African ethic or humanist philosophy focusing on people’s allegiances and relations with each other.
Having painted in this impoverished township weeks prior, I quickly noticed how interested the children were with making art. Their township had an overwhelming number is discarded tires littered all over their property. A few weeks later, I conceptualized a fun project involving the communities children and re-appropriating the hundreds of tires, to make a colorful totem pole. The enthusiasm and smiles of the children touched me deeply! I was honored to introduce them to painting, as many of them have never held a brush or painted before.”
It sure looks like everyone had fun. Cheers to Above and all those involved!
