Squids in…


Belgian street artist ROA turned up in Nelson a year ago and started to stir up the more conservative elements of the populace with his super-large murals of aquatic creatures, all crowd-funded in an initiativ e kicked off by our friend Eelco Boswijk Jr.

Much muttering along the lines of “I like art, but…”, “Why can’t they get Kiwi artist’s [sic] to do it?” and “It’s ugly, and will no doubt frighten some young children.”

Which is par for the course in Nelson.

Glad I live in utterly cool Not Nelson
