Auckland street art

After posting on street art from around the world for some time I’ve finally gotten round to covering Auckland, where I live. It’s taken me a while to collect these, as street art is scattered in different parts of the city. It also reflects the often transitory nature of street art with at least a quarter of these no longer, either covered over or the fences they were repainted or removed.

These for example have either gone, or will soon, as they were along by the new housing development at Three Kings. I particularly like the tennis playing pineapple head.

There are some great pieces in an alley behind Cali’s in Newmarket, including one by the distinctive Wellington street artists BMD.

The steps at the back of St Kevin’s Arcade on K Road are a treasure trove.

Which continues out into Glover Park with these wonderful ducks on the side of the car park.

 

Another one from K Road, at the Symond St Cemetery end, with Rock Shop’s memorial to Prince.

More from around the city – CBD, Grafton, Ponsonby, and Wynyard Quarter.

To finish with a classic location, seen around the world, electricity substations (I think that’s what these are, or something to do with the cooper network…).
