Posted: Nov 29 2017
Zoo Lake’s public basketball courts have received a much-needed makeover this week.
The work of artists Faatimah Mohamed-Luke and Karabo Moletsane, each basketball court now sports a vibrant and large-scale mural.
The murals feature two battling animals – a crocodile and a cheetah – and are inspired by the city of Joburg, commonly known as the concrete jungle, as well as the surrounding Zoo Lake area.
The murals are the result of a new Nike campaign inspiring athletes in the city, and see the two artists combining their styles.
Head through to Zoo Lake to check them out in person.
