Award-winning musician, Samthing Soweto’s debut album, Isphithiphithi, was released on September 20th via Platoon to vast critical and commercial acclaim.
To celebrate and promote the successes, Platoon, London and SA based artist services company, decided to merge the Worlds of Art and Music by facilitating the creation of a street art mural.
The Mural was painted by Street Artist Dbongz in collaboration with Baz-Art, Street Art NPO, and inspired by the album artwork which features Samthing Soweto dressed in MaXhosa Africa and designed by Tony Mokhononoana – which showcases a culturally rich and colourful proudly South African artist, the perfect inspiration for a mural.
Our Role: We have been collaborating with Platoon and Baz’Art for many years and assisted them in creating a series of videos and photographs documenting this project.
