So much for street art. Andrew van der Merwe has taken up a beach-based variant, inspired by writing styles from the North African Taureg culture and the West African Akan peoples. This particular calligraphy mandala can be found at Glencairn Beach in Cape Town, South Africa. He claims it doesn’t mean anything…but we think he just isn’t saying.
