Today we celebrate Cape Town street artist @nard_star, recently named one of @mailandguardian's 200 Young South Africans.

Nadia's murals, like the one featured at the @vandawaterfront, are inspired by local themes, including indigenous flora and fauna. “In recent years, my art has focused on the representation of women of colour. I am committed to celebrating women on walls to inspire women and help them feel appreciated and seen,” she says. Known as Nardstar*, Nadia wants her work to resonate with South Africans. “It doesn’t have to be life-changing, but if my art adds a momentary lift to someone’s day, then I’m cool with that.”
