Johannesburg’s street art scene is alive, with Jewel City being the most colorful urban development region. The streets of this neighborhood are bursting with striking, bold pieces from local and international artists. This part of town is quickly making its own mark on this vibrant landscape.
One of the murals that catch our attention is this oversized piece covering an entire building. It is a simple piece of artwork, but its size creates a dramatic impact. We love the irregularity and fluidity of the kidney shapes, reflecting in the patterns of nature. It gave a sense of softness and playfulness amongst the busy and bustling Jewel City. The color palette is also soft yet bold, another interesting juxtaposition that the artist chooses.
Inspired by the building’s artwork, we create a kidney shape rug collage as a broadloom carpet. Our kidney-shaped carpet takes on the same soft shapes and colors of the mural for a playful twist. To add more dimension, we overlap the kidney shapes and draw them closer to each other. Adding earth tones in lighter shades of the yellow and coral colors also helps in that effect. This creates a more dimensional and intriguing look for a flooring surface.
