The Legendary Union Of Art & Craft Beer

The new look of the historic Orlando Towers in Soweto that have graced the Johannesburg horizon for years, was revealed this week.

The artwork is an iconic collaboration between South African talent Karabo Poppy Moletsane and Soweto’s very own craft beer brand, Soweto Gold.

 

 

The Soweto Brewing Company was founded by Ndumiso Madlala in 2012. The company’s vision is to bring the success of local brewing into a township environment. Visual illustrator and street artist who trended earlier this month for creating Marie Claire Sa’s June 2018 cover and designing the Millenial blanket in collaboration with Something Good Studio, Karabo Poppy Moletsane, designed the art. Moletsane studied a BA in Visual Communication and has been awarded and recognised for her vast range of street art and illustration projects.

 

She posted a picture on Instagram and captioned it: ‘Honored to have my illustrations on one of the most iconic structures in South Africa 🇿🇦- the Orlando Towers. Was so great collaborating with @SowetoGold to tell a story that celebrates South Africa’s potential to turn the seemingly ordinary into the exceptional ✍🏾👩🏾🖤. Who’s going bungee jumping with me???’.

 

 

Moletsane was also part of our list of five African female artists to watch this year, including the iconic Zanele Muholi and Ruth Ossai. Check the article out here.
