Poster for PKN Whangarei Vol. 5

The next PechaKucha Night in Whangarei (Vol. 5) is set to take place at The Old Library on October 21. If you've noticed a trend in Whangerei's posters, there's a reason for that, as organizer Kara Dodson explains. You might see a theme developing with our posters -- they are actually all from photos I took of cool graffiti in Buenos Aires and Rio a while back. They are certainly making everyone's head turn and brighten their days.

The Hidden Spaces

Sixteen years ago, as a young fine arts student, Kathy Toth got involved with the graffiti scene and was, from that point, led into some strange and unique places. The lifestyle of a graffiti artist is one of urban traversal; in many cases it involves reaching spaces one could not access by vehicle. Oftentimes graffiti spaces have little to no foot-traffic nearby and enjoy a certain quiet isolation, in other cases they involve skirmishes between the local authorities. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Toronto Vol. 17), Kathy tells us of the alleyways, roofs of buildings, garages, abandoned greenhouses and undersides of freeways that she has found herself amongst in her time involved with this artistic subculture, and how it inspired her to get into professional photography. To see see more of Kathy's photography, check out her website.
