Urban Echoes Art Exhibition

Event information

The Nelson Mandela Square, is enticing art enthusiasts with yet another reason to visit the popular piazza. A new art exhibition titled Urban Echoes has been unveiled in the Square, immersing visitors in a captivating fusion of emblematic sculptures, vibrant colour, and captivating artistic expressions.

Crafted by world-renowned sculptor, Anton Smit, in collaboration with graffiti artist George Kalapov “Mars”, and Artyli Gallery, it’s a first for Johannesburg and the county.

Each viewpoint alters the individually painted heads, which resembles Johannesburg’s urban fabric and changes the sculptures into a painted landscape. When viewed as a collective, the completed collection resembles a large mural depicting “Life in Jo’burg,” in a way never seen before.

The Urban Echoes collection complements the Colossal exhibition, Smit’s collection of mesmerising pieces that transformed the Square into an open-air gallery with over twenty sculptures, last year, most of which are still on exhibit.
