The City of Cape Town has issued fines totaling R36 000 to those caught contravening the graffiti by-law.

The controversial by-law was passed while concerned graffiti artists said it limited their freedom of expression as it made it illegal for them to paint murals on property without a permit from the city.

Mayoral Committee Member for safety and security, JP Smith said that the City has been focusing on steering the participants in a more constructive direction.

Smith said the Arts and Culture Department has been working actively with the sub council on identifying dedicated mural spaces.

He added that the City is working on fast tracking the application process to make sure that mural applications are approved quicker.
