A Street artist named ABOVE has designed on the exterior walls of the African City Johannesburg’s Jewel City center, which host 300 diamond traders. The double messeged slogan stating “Diamonds Are a Woman’s Best Friend and a Man Worst Enemy are printed on the wall.
I was able to get away with this diamond wall heist because I told the owners I would paint in big letters “Diamonds are a woman’s best friend” on the exterior of their building. The owners loved the idea and all quickly agreed.
The next day I had started painting but what the owners didn’t know is that I lied to them and was hijacking their wall. Like any premeditated robbery, situations are not what they seem and shit can flip from best friends to worst enemies in a few moments.
I assume the owners were too busy trading diamonds inside the mega centre they never took the time to come out and see I was painting a controversial word play about the diamond trade and how it’s fueled so much bloodshed in wars making it one of man’s worst enemies.
