I’m not really into street art but I’ve always thought that it can be an interesting form of expression. I might not always get it all the time but some of these street arts look so good that I’m just amazed at the artists’ talents in bringing it out on different types of canvases.
The street art that I saw were quite elaborate and big so I wasn’t sure if that was the norm in New Zealand usually really but they were all very beautiful nevertheless. Singapore doesn’t have too many of street art such as these so it was especially fun for me whenever I happened to stumble on one.
Most of the street art that I saw was in Christchurch and Dunedin because these were a few of the cities that I visited but I’m sure there’s plenty more to find in other parts of New Zealand. I just thought that it would be quite interesting to share some of the street arts that I’ve encountered as they were really beautifully executed.
The street arts in Dunedin required a bit of a walk to find them as there were some that were hidden in alleyway so it was always quite exciting whenever I bumped into one. The ones in Christchurch were pretty much everywhere so I had a lot of fun trying to catch most of them.
All in all, the street art was a fun way of exploring the city. Walking around a city was usually a big change in landscape from the other towns in New Zealand so being able to find these randomly was usually a surprise. Some of the street art made me laugh and smile (like the last one), some made me reflective (the dark one) while some made me admire the artist’s talents (the big girl’s face). My favourite is still the one with Jack & the Beanstalk though. That won some points with me. 🙂
