Despite being a small country New Zealand does have a rich tradition of street art. Many street artists are making their living out of this hobby. Auckland and Dunedin are the hubs. Most of the street art in New Zealand is here. The RISE festival where international artists come and showcase their art is an elixir for the development of graffiti art in New Zealand.
There can be no street art without Banksi. This is one of his famous art known as ” The Flower thrower”. It was at showcase at the RISE festival.
This street art is by New Zealand artist Owen Dippie. This is one of the well-known art “Biggie” on walls of Dunedin. It can be found in Auckland also.
This is a stencil made wall graffiti which has been put forward by New Zealand police as a recruitment advertisement. Nice is it not?
This unique wall mural is from famous Australian street art festival Oi You! which came to New Zealand this air. Graffiti art is indeed becoming popular in New Zealand.
This unique and colorful wall mural I found on a wall in a street in Auckland. The colors and hue took my breath away.
This one from a Christchurch street is my favorite. The one-eyed artist really is a piece of art for sure.
I would be exploring Australia next for street art. So watch for some Aussie stuff
