Kickstart ‘the street loves nana’
‘The street loves nana’ – street art meets ‘nanaish’ handcrafting.
Well-known NZ street artists are making a fence – of street art – to be shown and sewn at Splore – by festival goers (over a cup of tea). Not in a lounge, but by the sea. Imagine.
Eight images, big ones, are sprayed on to fence mesh and then whoever chooses can come and handsew to help finish these works (and learn a craft at the same time).
Curator (and cat-herder) Margaret Lewis has asked the artists involved to make a work about nanas – their nana, who she is, what she does, what she’s done, what they admire about her, what makes their nana special – after all everyone loves their nana.
“And I hoped the street artists would want to talk about their nanas – they certainly did. The works they are making honour grandmothers everywhere as well as all the things they do for us.”
Of course, every art project is a collaboration. Margaret has not done all this work herself, the project has built its own community of scavengers, builders, stitchers and NZ street artists all helping to make this happen.

Great to see two great events going on in in Christchurch city Big line of skills putting paint to walls inside and out. Best to check the two links for more info
First event took place over the 7th Dec to the 14th
Second event started on the 20th until 23rd march 2014 so bit of time to see the inside work on this one !!
This is the timelapse from the wall TrustMe recently painted. The true meaning of the wall is to encourage discussion around the protection of our natural environment and the pursuit of technology exploring sustainable models of energy production and consumption.
This artwork has now been used to promote activity and contribution to the discussion through the campaign and website http://www.wishyouwerenthere.org.nz/
