Artist, Jaco Haasbroek decided to hit the streets of Cape Town to bring some good news and it is very refreshing! His witty headlines and positive posters have created quite a stir – a good one that is.
Last year Between 10 and 5 reported that Jaco decorated Cape Town’s lampposts with posters reading things like “lawyer loses case – finds it in car.” His posters have been making rounds on social media since then.
He explains where he got the idea on his website: “I was driving home and spotted a ‘STOLEN’ pet poster. It’s quite sad when someone loses a pet and then the idea popped in my head that by simply adding ‘Our Hearts’ at the bottom of the poster it would completely change its meaning and turn it into something positive. This idea then evolved into these fictional news headlines.”
