DALeast [ CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA ]all artists
DALeast is a Chinese artist...
based in Cape Town, South Africa. After studying various forms of art, painting, sculpture, digital etc. he started doing street art in 2004. Since then his murals have been seen around the world from Miami to China.
His murals often look like 3-D images of unraveling metal shards used to form a figure, most often an animal. His animals are often featured in two disconnected parts, often dissolving in the middle or at the sides. DALeast has noted previously that the animals represent the human condition.
DALeast is used to working fast on his murals in order to evade arrest, for his mural in the Wynwood Doors, it took him just under 30 minutes to complete it. The fastest any one mural has been completed in the Walls.
