Breeze (South Africa)

Breeze Yoko is an artist from Cape Town, South Africa who has been painting since 1998, starting off painting letter style, but in the past 10 years working on painting characters.

His whimsical yet powerful murals unfurl a kind of humanity and beauty that re-imagine their environments using a visual vocabulary that addresses many different social and political issues. His work is also concerned with pan-Africanism, and the reclaiming and forging of old and new “schemes, forms and strategies” in the realms of culture and politics.

He has painted at many events in cities around the world, mostly in the African continent and in Europe.
