Get Up Urban Street Art Festival, Huatoki Plaza.

All I can say is WOW! What a fantastic festival. This is New Plymouth's first Urban Street Art event. The organisers chose the Huatoki Plaza as it is an under utilised and dull area in the centre of the CBD. Artists have come from all over New Zealand to take part. Forty I think. They are using a variety of mediums which include - aerosol, house paint, marker, paint, pens and stensils. Some are painted on the walls and sides of buildings, others are painted on temporary boards set up especially for the festival.

Here is my sketch:

The Artist:

Owen Dippie - is an internationally recognised artist from New Zealand. He endeavours to leave his mark on the world, rather than just exist in it.
