A building with a heritage of law situated on a street named after the lawyer that schooled him, the late Anton Lembede.
The client wanted a overnight "wow" factor to ensure this could be unveiled to the publics surprise, but at the same time ensuring that all risks in a speedy flighting were mitigated as this is a building full of lawyers!
The art piece was commissioned and produced by local artist, Sandile Mhlongo. The painted art was then digitised and set up for print. A background was photoshopped in to match the adjacent buildings green lattice.
The graphic was printed to Tarpaulin PVC as six 40+ meter drops, then heat welded together to make up the giant print. This was finished with reinforced pockets on the edges and installed to a hot dipped galvansied frame via a pocket and bar tension system.
On the second day of being flighted it was exposed to very high winds, and subsequently to a further two "hurricane" force winds which ripped apart other PVC banners, opened roofs and wrecked havoc in Durban, yet Anton Lembede still stands!
