Street Art Adventures

Hey guys! Sorry that I’ve been so slack with posting. I can’t really say that I’ve been busy, but I just haven’t done anything exciting sooo I’ve been being busy doing nothing. Anyway I have done something worth noting! Today my friend and I walked around Christchurch on a street art hunt. OK that doesn’t sound particularly exciting but the photos are so cool and I love street art so here we are. In the aftermath of the earthquakes in 2010 and 2011 in Christchurch, this city has had such cool ways to funk it up and use the destruction and lack of buildings and do innovative things in it. Such as re:start which is a shopping ‘centre’ made out of shipping containers painted cool colours. Another was the Christchurch Stands Tall giraffe sculpture trail where 49 tall giraffes and 50 small giraffes were decorated by artists, schools and businesses. Processed with VSCOcam Around Christchurch for the last couple of years there has been the rise street art festival. They invite street artists to do murals across the CBD to bring interest and aesthetics into the otherwise grim city. Here are a few pics by some. Processed with VSCOcam
