Murals with POW! Murals that WOW!

For a muralist, a great white wall is but an opportunity, and this is no different for designer/artistic director Kamea Hadar.

Wow! — a global artists gathering set in cities all over the world.

Taking Art to the Street

BY ARTIST DAAS

"The city landscape is constantly changing... it's impossible for one person to do it alone."

In Watch this Space: Christchurch Street Art at PechaKucha Night Vol. 29, Lindsay Chan shares her discovery of numerous murals popping up around the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. In response to the recent natural disaster, many local artists have taken to the streets to create a lively atmosphere through adversity and art.
