Resoborg’s New Mural in KwaMashu

WORDS Michaela Stehr PHOTOS Dawn Rouse

Durban-based artist, illustrator and graphic designer Wesley van Eeden, aka Resoborg, has completed a new mural in KwaMashu, just outside Durban.

Freedom Park, a community upliftment project, is the first in a potential series of projects planned for KwaMashu. The project has provided free sports facilities for the neighbourhood to use, including a basketball court, netball and tennis court, a soccer field, an outdoor gym, ablution facilities and a table tennis area.

Resoborg was commissioned to create a bright 3D mural on two containers that house ablution facilities. Each container was adorned with bold shapes inspired by Africa, sports themes and the figure of a female and male on each, indicating the respective bathrooms. Each ablution container was completed using spray paint and masking tape around each of the four sides.

We’ve previously featured Resoborg’s mural in Virginia, USA, his Taxi Dance mural, his RVCA collaboration in both NYC and SA and his piece at The Boiler Room.
