MAY 2ND EXHIBITION OPENING

MAY 3RD, 4TH & 5TH
LIVE PAINTING UP AND DOWN K ROAD.
Karangahape Road is a long time home to art and cultural activity that doesn’t fit in amongst the typical mainstream vernacular. It abounds with mythical figures and local legend from across multiple generations. It is an area of Auckland that is fighting to retain all that is good about grit and grime, to celebrate the eccentric and erroneous.
All the while ensuring that it remains a relevant and vital creative community that is recognised for its value as a rich depository of cultural artefact and activity.
All Fresco is both a response to the traditions of Krd, and to the paucity of street art in the Krd district. The character of a community is reflected in many things including the evidence of an engaged and ongoing public dialogue. And in an area noted for it’s character, a distinct lack of sites hosting relevant and revolving street art is something to be addressed.
The value of this event isn’t just in the opportunity it provides to artists, or even the spectacle and experience it offers spectators. It’s in re-establishing and re-affirming the qualities of a part of our city that makes it the most well know, most notorious and fabled strip in the country.
Thanks to K Road Business Association for making this happen!!
