Breeze Yoko is a Johannesburg-based award winning multidisciplinary artist and curator specialising in video/film and graffiti. Yoko has participated in the Berlinale Talent Campus, and in urban art projects in South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Senegal, Germany, France, and many more. His films have won awards at the Tricontinental Film Festival, South Africa; Special mention in the Sienna Film Festival, Italy; and Dak’Art, Senegal. He recently painted murals in over 13 countries traveling mostly overland from Lagos to Amsterdam.

Breeze’s whimsical yet powerful murals unfurl a kind of humanity and beauty that re-imagine their environments. In a search for new methods to ‘read the city’, Yoko uses a visual vocabulary that addresses many different social and political issues. The work incorporates time as well as space in a fictional and experiential universe. By merging several seemingly incompatible worlds into a new universe, he finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humour that echoes our own vulnerabilities. Yoko also considers movement as a metaphor for the ever-seeking man who experiences a continuous and constant change. His work is also concerned with pan-Africanism, and the reclaiming and forging of old and new “schemes, forms and strategies” in the realms of culture and politics.
