Zoo Lake basketball courts get a makeover

                             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.
