The city is a disorienting space for anyone – humans and animals alike. Johannesburg is one such city and has been known by many names: Joburg, Jozi, The City of Gold. Most suitably in this scenario, it can be called the Concrete Jungle – a mix and match of natural and urban, old and new, home-grown and cosmopolitan. The giraffe depicted in this print has landed itself tangled in the hustle and bustle of the city, and captures a feeling that many of us experience when faced with the streets of inner city Johannesburg. A sort of surrendering to the unpredictable busy-ness of one’s surroundings.
