Messy Monkey is like a splash in the pool, a chinese fire drill, or perhaps (for some?) a good shot of whiskey!

Experiencial Events * Installation Art * Intriguing Catalysts to Creativity

Kelly Wainwright, Messy Monkey Founder, has rallied 4 Cape Town Photographers on board her project PlayJumpEat!, making some very vivid images in her head turn real. They have put together a fresh & intriguing photo series of images shot all over Cape Town, in the likes of: Archbishop Desmond Tutu jumping on a bed, & 5 oak trees in the Company's Gardens covered in fabrics of all different kinds during Cape Town's Fashion Week. They are now selling the images at: PlayJumpEat! giving a percentage of the proceeds to the Tertia Kindo Arts Project, a children's dance school in Ocean View (Cape Town, South Africa). For more on the project go here.

Upcoming Exhibition of Images:

Starting on June 3rd the images will be exhibited at Misael Space on Bree Street in downtown Cape Town until July 15th running through the 2010 World Cup. The opening on June 3rd will start with a walkabout at 6pm and drinks at 7pm.


8 artists. 8 canvases. 8 minutes:

A Fundraising/Painting Extravaganza like none other.

Imagine: a gallery filled with wine & appetizers, like many a fine installation you've been to before. Mix that with a dj playing 8 beats for 8 minutes, while 8 artists move from canvas to canvas, painting with 8 different unconventional tools, be they turkey basters, toilet bowl plungers, or brooms. Impressively, the work turns out full of energy, with enormous amounts of CRE8tivity & color flying around the room. We do both a raffle & a live aution on the collaborative & individual works made.

We offer Cre8 to non-profits looking to raise funds in a more than creative way, and/or to businsses who want to get involved & help sponsor those they are interested in. Artists range from professional artists to celebrities to business CEO's. You decide who's best for you.
