Art or wilful damage; what do you think? Have your say..

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on May 26, 2008 by heatherbilly

These dolphins were stenciled in a couple of locations in the city lately. The artist, Jono More, was collared by police and charged with wilful damage, a big scary crim’ i’m sure.. The outcome of these charges are yet to be decided.
We’re interested in what you all think?
We both consider them to be art that can be enjoyed by the public of Dunedin.

Anyway we think that there’s a lot worse stuff the police could be doing in Dunedin. If they’re going to clamp down on tagging and graffiti, the least they could do is target the stuff that is offensive to the majority of the public and on private property.

Go the Dolphins…

Giraffes

When Heather & myself started this blog, lots of people kept telling us about the giraffes they kept seeing about town. So, we think it’s time for a quick run down of all the giraffes, in no particular order, that we’ve managed to round-up in the first couple of months. If you have seen any other ones, please feel free to post them on our blog or let us know about them and we’ll go and catch them..

This mural is located on the sidewall of Tangente cafe on Moray Place.  It was painted 20years ago by Rod Jensen and friends.  It is now an image used in the ‘Dunedin Murals’ collection of cards commissioned by Corso, New Zealands own development aid agency since 1944.

Wellington

Unfortunately I only took this one pic when I was in Wellington last weekend. It’s a wee bit different from the stuff  we’re seeing in Dunedin. Homegrown was wicked though.
