    Is this art, or happenstance? I like to think it’s a Chch response to Carl Andre’s Equivalent VIII

    Andre took art off the pedestal. But we demolished the pedestal too.

    'Nuclear Dawn', Coldharbour Lane, Brixton. (painted c. 1980-81, Brian Barnes & Dale McCrea), May 24 2012.

    I didn't capture the scale at all well, but it really is rather overwhelming in situ, considering it's about fifty foot high.

    Behind Art Station in Ponsonby, as part of The Sole Project in July. Organised by street art legends Otis Frizzell, DLT, Dan Tippet and others. More on Peter Mac’s blog here.

    I’ll go on forever.

    Thanks Craig. Love the Tintin stairs. Don’t stop, if you have more.

    Oh, carry on! It’s like you were waiting for the day.

    ETA: Ha, snap. Also, this seems early? Another big day I take it.

    That's a fantastic way to add to a tourist tour of sites, as well as just generally improving an urban environment.

    Great work Jackson, and everyone else too. Here’s some pieces from the Mangawhau zone, all are gone now. The colour shots are from mid-2000 and were on the walls of the Carter Holt MDF factory site. I know Robyn was also fond of Ligga’s portrait of David Lange in upper Symonds St, which went up around 2005-2006.

    Spray Art on canvas, by Dan Tippett.

    Since we seem to be stretching the ‘Street Art’ theme somewhat.
