Hi, and welcome to my blog. I hope you like street art, because that’s what you’ll find here! My name’s Jo and I’m from Wellington, New Zealand, home to all things ‘Middle Earth’ and a thriving art scene for such a small capital. I feel blessed to come from such a vibrant city where innovation and creativity are positively encouraged. In fact, our city council even sponsors mural projects as a way to reduce vandalism and create a sense of safety in urban communities. Of course, some of our best art is still good old-fashioned ‘vandalism’!
I’ve always loved art and learning about other cultures, but it’s when I began travelling Europe that I discovered that street art is the ultimate form of expression for me. I love how it uses humour to provoke a reaction, send a serious political message or just provide a laugh. The absolute best thing about street art is that it brings art to the masses and transcends all class divisions.
