ALL FRESCO: K-Road Art 2015

Congratulations to the K-Road Business Association for inviting good street artists to enliven some of the bare walls in the neighbourhood.  This is a very creative alternative to fighting a losing battle against random taggers!

More important still, bare concrete walls are deadening to the human spirit; street art enlivens us.2.street art








– see this for a map, and further info about the K-Road project.

The Corban Estate Arts Centre, in Henderson, West Auckland also features wonderful street-art walls, and regular programmes for involving taggers positively.  Community Centres and Business Associations everywhere (and schools with tagging problems, of course) could follow these examples.
