JP Jordaan, Nick Ferreira, Stathi Kougianos and Martin Pace are all Vega graduates, a brand communication school in South Africa. The group’s surprising and thought-evokingĀ eco art [7] is designed to draw attention to our ever-increasing alienation from nature.

Instead of painting new images on degraded municipal walls and other infrastructure, the group enhances them with clean, temporary graffiti [8]. While tagging is technically illegal, authorities are battling to pin down how exactly these “urban vandals” are doing harm. Because they’re not. We love Dutch Ink’s work, so stay tuned for updates.
