Street Art in Christchurch

dickhead street art christchurch

Gone is the beige brick history. Gone is the story of colonial English settlers. From the ashes and dust rises a story of resilience, of creativity and regeneration – through street art.

Not dissimilar to East Berlin – where the remnants of the Berlin wall have been overtaken by street artists to express freedom and a swift middle finger to the oppression of the 1940s – Christchurch has overcome the challenges of devastating earthquakes to now symbolise the start of a transitional art movement in New Zealand.

A feeling of regeneration has been cemented on the city streets, and is a true testament to the hardy kiwi spirit. I am in awe.

A handful of street art…
