I am a huge lover of graffiti and when I came back to South Africa I was amazed to see that the artists here were holding it down. In my search for amazing S.A graff artists I came across the work of MARS. A graffiti artist who has been doing urban contemporary art for nearly 10 years. His style is a blend of traditional graffiti and his own unique flare added with some dope character designs to bring the whole design together with vibrancy and colour. He never does the same thing twice, staying original and always progressing.
Mars has an alter ego and his name is Mr.Moris. Mr.Moris was created with the purpose of widening the artistic and creative horizon of traditional graffiti. The use of crazy colours, funky characters, design elements and fine art techniques plant him firmly into a ‘street art’ category. It is a fresh style that will keep you coming back for more and be mesmerized with all the small details and awesome characters.
This is definitely an artist to keep your eye on as I see big things in the future coming from Mars graffiti. Taking South African graff to the next level, being a huge part of the art and the culture. Proof that South African graffiti artists can play with the big boys on an international level. This is someone who has been Beautifying the dull boring streets of Johannesburg for a long time and for that we thank him 🙂
