These pictures where taken under a bridge in Kliptown, Cape Town South Africa and shared on Wooster collective by Faith47. They show some great stencils on a wall with deliberate space for passers by to stop and write their own messages to the political top.

I am a huge fan of guerrilla activism. Getting people to interact and have a say in the public sphere is so important, especially in countries with corruption and restricting governments at their hearts.

For my liking, this Cape Town campaign is street art at its best! Stats for Crowd-Sourced Graffiti Trending: Older & Mild
