An ongoing project showcasing the work of artists from around the world encouraging people to imagine what the world could look like if city, national, and international leaders took the climate action that C40 cities take.
Yay Abe is a multi-disciplinary illustration studio based in Cape Town founded by Russell Abrahams. His work is inspired by local people and cultures, characterised by bold colour, a unique graphic style and playful nature. Abe said: “my work stems from the society in which I live.”
Abe’s art reflects his surroundings, and tells interesting and vibrant stories.
“My illustration answers the question “what is it like to walk down a street in my city/town/home/region post-green recovery?” It speaks to my city living greener and represents freedom of movement for people of colour.”
