Falko One

Falko One is notably one of South Africa's most well known and respected graffiti artists, with a career spanning almost 3 decades he has been highly influential on the growth of the local graffiti culture and inspired multiple generations of artists.

He’s inspiration lies as much in the life that surrounds the wall . Once Upon a Town projects, now in its 6th year is his most ambitious project. “A canvass is too contained. It’s very hard for me to make sense of the image without a natural background” he says.

Over the past few years he has become widely recognised for his iconic elephant paintings that pop up in streets, townships and other random locations across the country. Rendered in his unique characteristic style and often situational to their surroundings these elephants have captured the imagination of all that see them.
