Taking Art to a New Height

SkyJacks provided the powered access equipment that enabled art phenomenon Vhils to transform the facia of The Cosmopolitan building in the Maboneng Precinct, Joburg, into a larger than life image of philanthropist and musician Yvonne Chaka Chaka.

As part of the Hennessy “Making The Invisible Visible” collaboration, Vhils uses a chisel, hammer and drill to create his images by uncovering a building’s historic layers of paint, plaster and dirt hence making the invisible, visible. Throughout the installation Vhils was able to work easily and safely thanks to the versatility of the SkyJacks Z135 43m Articulated Diesel Boom Lift.
