Isn’t it just the bee’s knees when turning a street corner and receiving an eye full of incredible street art?
For myself, I just love seeing street art and the fact that I can walk around the city I live in and get to view them is well, superb. We were spoilt with fantastic street art in various forms while housesitting in the UK and Europe and even via cities in NZ, like Dunedin.
What is fun and new to me is The Third Street Prints Mauao in Tauranga Moana, showcasing international and local street artists work around our city walls. It is now in its fourth year, and it starts today with a pōwhiri to welcome the artists on top of Mauao at 9am. I will be done and dusted with my mountain climb by that time.
While I spend some time digesting the new sights around the city and surrounding areas let me share a few older pieces.
