Also take a look at his Splitpiece project - beautiful uplifting urban art.
“After 18 years, as a graffiti artist, falko is widely honoured as an integral part of the foundation and development of the graffiti scene in South Africa.
He started in a period in the height South Africa’s political turmoil. A time when `graffiti` was associated with political struggle. With his country’s isolation, it also isolated the graffiti scene from proper information and knowledge about what graffiti art was actually about. This resulted in him being influenced by Spraycan Art and Subway art. These books were the only sources of reference until 1991.
Falko concentrates on all aspects of the graffiti art, i.e., styles, characters, concepts and also using it for social upliftment. The quality of work that his managed to produce, considering the minimal range of colours and quality of sprays, is implausible. The standard of work has been given world recognition.”
“I was recently posted to Johannesburg, South Africa as part of a splendid media trip to cover the Smirnoff Experience featuring Tiësto and BLK JKS. Naturally, the video journalist in me decided to make a mini-documentary on the whole thing. I had the privilege to interview the big Dutchman himself, as well as play with baby lion cubs, bike around Soweto village, experience nights out full of excessive liquor.”—
The CCMA sided with my sister on this one. When confronted with the theft accusation, Julia stated that her hoard accidentally fell out of the cabinet into her handbag that is stored in the mud-room. Regarding shitting on the floor, she replied that she simply missed pooping in the toilet due to “illness”… The arbitrator was harsh with her behaviour and lame excuses. My sis however, has to pay Julia R1000 in “damages” because of a procedural issue - A hearing with a third party is required before dismissal! Who knew. My sis could object at an arbitration, but would probably have to pay more due to the procedural hiccup!!! Seems crime does pay. Anyhoo… Hah, Julia then smiled and asked my sis for taxi money! I just laughed.
