I think it is both, and I have discovered a passion for good grafitti wall art or street art. I am not sure what the proper term is, so I am going with grafitti art (and covering all my bases). I first discovered the good stuff in Melbourne, which has opened my eyes to local installations. This is one that popped up not long after the Feb22 earthquake, in one of the more damaged areas. I suspect the wall became available when the house in front of it was demolished.
There is a certain irony in the creation of art out of destruction, something that our city is learning to explore, with the help of the Gapfiller people. I don’t know who did this art or why, but it is very cool and I wanted to share it with you.
