Internationally acclaimed artist Paul Du Toit and  local school children add a splash of colour to Hout Bay

Bay Harbour Market owner Anthony Stroebel and internationally acclaimed artist and Hout Bay local resident South African artist Paul Du Toit embarked on a project, with  a shared vision of transforming the old fishing factory into a thriving market showcasing the best of South African culture, authentic crafts and  Cape cuisine.

Paul along with local school children from the surrounding areas, injected colour and life into the Hout Bay Harbour – a beautiful example of transformation where prominent members of the community are actively leading future generations to take part, creating a sense of ownership and pride in the area. This final phase of exterior colour wall murals painted sets to make the Bay Harbour Market stand out as a badge of upliftment, and social development.

Having highly acclaimed exhibitions across Europe, Hong Kong, Sydney, Miami and New York, Paul has also offered his time to charitable organisations such as the Children’s Hospital Trust, Peninsula school feeding program, the Homestead project for the street children of Cape Town and Nelson Mandela’s 46664 Campaign.

Situated on the water’s edge, overlooking the famous Chapman’s Peak – Bay Harbour has quickly become a vibrant waterside destination that is unique in flavour as the village itself.  Inside, the building is alive with colour and active trade from local handcrafted leather, fine linen, fresh delicacies, seasonal flowers, music and much more add to the spirit of a unique market place that captures the essence of the diverse Hout Bay community .

This inspirational project surrounds the Bay Harbour market with colourful a message of unity and community support.
