Street artist Above painted another mural regarding “Blood Diamonds” in South Africa. According to 12oz Prophet, “Above painted easily one of the largest and in your face political statements on the exterior wall of Johannesburg’s Jewel City, a six-block mega-precinct that serves as a base for some 300 diamond traders as well as South Africa’s Diamond Board and State Traders Association. Jewel City is the largest diamond exporter in the southern hemisphere with over R7-Billion worth of Diamonds being exported every year.” Above’s mural demonstrates the power of Street Art.
