California born ABOVE was recently in South Africa for the City Of Gold Festival for which he painted this new and visually refreshing mural in Johannesburg.
Titled “Incognito”, the new mural is 33 x 17 mts and took 6 days to complete, being ABOVE’s largest mural to date.
Incognito features Above’s signature arrow imagery rendered through a bright, multilayered and engaging colour palette with over 20 different colours. Certainly something you will notice if you walk by.
