Established by graffiti and tattoo artist Rasty Knayles – who is the founder of Joburg’s only gallery dedicated to street art, the Grayscale Gallery – The City of Gold Festival will take over Braamfontein for seven days and will see international street artists join their local counterparts to make our streets come alive with millions of colors.
