Street art brings depth
In a city resplendent with street art, the newest mural adorning the back of Riverside Market rises to the challenge of bringing something new. This depiction of a row of heritage shops is painted onto a flat façade, yet tricks the eyes into seeing a multi-dimensional historical scene.
The project was produced by George Shaw of Oi YOU! and painted in six weeks by local graffiti art collective, DTR Crew – Dcypher, Ikarus, Jacob Yikes & Wongi Wilson.
The mural was co-funded by Riverside Market and ChristchurchNZ, and is the largest and most complex ever delivered in the city.
