(The courtyard is just behind the front entrance of the gallery i.e. walk through the passage – with the elephants on the wall – and you’ll see the JFF Rooftop Farm shop in the courtyard!)

In Braamfontein, guests can expect to see a lot of graffiti, modern street art and cool hangout spots that highlight why this area is one of the coolest areas in the city!

We then head to Newtown which is also rich in Graffiti – in this area, you’ll see some of the best graffiti in the whole city and understand why Newtown used to be the art and cultural hub of the inner city.

From Newtown, we move towards Marshalltown where you’ll see a bit of day-to-day life in the city and how graffiti and street art has beautified some of the old and abandoned buildings found in this area!

We end in Maboneng with its colourful graffiti, street art and really cool wall murals!

This tour ends at the amazing Hallmark House Rooftop which has 360′ views of the city and is a great way to catch a beautiful sunset in the city while sipping on sundowners!

This tour is all about showing you how cool Johannesburg is and the positive impact graffiti and street art has on this city!
