MOTEL7

 

Motel7 is one of only two women street artists working extensively on the walls of Cape Town. Starting off as a traditional artist using paint and brushes from an early age, Motel7 has moved through the ranks of graffiti art to street art and like many international artists like Banksy, Miss Van, Blek le Rat, D*Face and Nick Walker she is taking her well deserved place as an urban contemporary artist in the world of commercial art galleries. Many art collectors might walk straight past painted walls in public spaces without looking twice, but at a gallery exhibition by the same artist, they would approach the work with a much more appreciative eye. In addition, in many cities like Cape Town where urban and street art is still illegal, artworks very seldom stay on the walls long enough to be fully appreciated before it gets cleaned off or defaced/bombed by other graffiti artists.
