Painted for Chorus to prevent tagging and graffiti. Painted around the corner from Burt Munro’s garage.
“I had so many positive comments from passers by and the local community. I even got interviewed by Cue TV – apparently they put the story in their evening news.
I had the best time down there – being out on the street, working in the sun on the side of one of Invercargill’s busiest roads – people were really interested and hospitable. I met so many great characters offering me everything from cups of tea to asking if I would paint their tree!
I think there is a real potential there for recording what people have to say about the work being done – everyone who stopped and spoke to me was appreciative and grateful for the work being done in their neighborhood.”
