End of year graffiti walls at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
Murals by third year Fine Arts students have started popping up on some of the construction hoardings around the Registry building. The painting is by Emma Tuohy and Cameron Ralston; the front of the building features a vinyl design by Kelsey O’Hagan. Thanks to Hawkins Construction, Deco NZ Ltd and Computaleta Christchurch for supporting the students and supplying materials. Hopefully you’ll see more of this popping up around campus soon!
