I’ve been “collecting” rural graffiti. The urban stuff just seemed too easy, so I set myself a challenge to find and record the spray-can art in the countryside. Some I posted in Peace, Love and Vegetable Rights.
On Saturday the Lovely Man and I went for a wander down at the Manawatu River bridge, I took my camera. Underneath the bridge there’s quite a collection of art works.
Some of it is so uplifting….
Maybe a young person can translate….?
Is that a mushroom on the end?
A few month’s ago, the day we spent at Feilding Steam Traction Society‘s open day, I gathered a few more images. These two are under the bridge at Menzies Ford on Colyton Road.
It’s not often that you see such an anatomically correct heart pierced with arrows. I wonder if the heart-shaped letters that make up the “CV” are a reflection of the real-to-life heart below.
This one’s my favourite from under the Ashhurst bridge.
I’m not sure what it says – but I like it. I love the sparkles, and especially like that the artist has painted on the ‘runs’ that we’re used to seeing on old-school graffiti. Has the quality of paint and spray cans improved so that it doesn’t run any more?
This is an on-going project. I’ll post more of my finds at a later date.
