Zesta and Page33 began freelancing as mural artists in South Africa around 2005.
In 2011 they began collaborating under the name Sweetooth Productions making murals for local, international clients across all industries as well as government departments, painting in all the big cities across South Africa.
International demand grew and the duo relocated to Netherlands making travelling for international projects easier.
Our name was obvious - we like to promote UNITY
and we love to make MURALS...
Zesta juxtaposes characters, portraits and city-scapes with abstracted letter forms.
