Artist Series 08: Sneaker LAB x Digs Connect presents Bushy

RECAPPING OUR LATEST ARTIST SERIES EVENT WITH GRAFFITI ARTIST BUSHY

On the 2nd of May, we threw our 8th Artist Series event, celebrating Cape Town artist Bushy at our Lab in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, South Africa. We joined forces with Digs Connect to bring this artist series to life. 

Growing up in Cape Town, Chad Hanning aka. Bushy started his street art journey at the age of 14 and now his work can be found on walls as far afield as Vietnam, and around the suburbs of Cape Town. 

 

 

His love for cartoons and vector illustrations is clear in his work, and he embraces vibrant and playful creativity. Check out the live mural video below to see how Bushy married the Lab with the Jurassic Era in his vibrant style: 

 

 

The message of street art is where its power lies. It gives a place a feeling; brings it to life. My artwork and light themes allow the viewer to break away from the harsh realities of life for a moment, – Bushy.

Throughout the evening, Bushy kept guests entertained with the live wall mural, while Oh Those Guys spun the decks. Limited edition custom products were on sale and Budweiser beer came to the party. 

 

 

A huge thank you to the Braamfontein community, Bushy as well as the Digs Connect team that made this collaboration possible.
