In keeping with the belief that it’s an arty city, Wellington positively encourages its citizens to find a grotty bit of wall somewhere and cover it with a mural. It brightens the place up, and – perhaps because Wellington is both cramped and hilly – there seem to be a lot of concrete embankments that need it. There’s also a passion for painting street furniture like electricity supply boxes.
Why? I don’t know… but they’re whimsical and fun to look at.

Lots more to come, I guess…
