Street Artists Transform City Walls in New Zealand
Stuff (New Zealand) | Rachel Moore
The streets of Palmerston North are a whole lot brighter thanks to 20 large-scale murals decorating the city after its first international street art festival. Street Prints Papaioea began on January 16, giving 10 international artists and 40 Manawatū youth six days to complete murals aimed at connecting the community with art. On a wall of The Globe Theatre is Irish artist Fin Dac’s painting of Manawatū mother and daughter, Karla and Awhina.
