  1. no offence but im soo sick of seeing these weird characters everywhere, such an eye sore. this "artist" needs to seriously sharpen up his skills and pick something a little more appealing to look at, im very close to laying a complaint to the council about this artist that is ruining our city with these giant UGLY murals, that bmd stuff is great but this is just all out disturbing

  2. Thank you for opinion Josie. Firstly starting off saying ''No offence'' usually makes the person you're talking to offended. Secondly Drypnz has been part of Wellington Graf / Art culture for many years and if you had taken the time out to actually get to know Drypnz and attend all of his many solo exhibits I think your opinion of his work would drastically change. Its all good and fair to have an opinion on what we see in our city but to make such a naive remark about his work is just ludicrous.

    I personally would rather see work like this, and others by the countless individuals who paint in this city than to be bombarded with corporate advertising like we do in Wellington. You say you are close to complaining to the Council about these characters, but would it be right to complain also about Phantom Bill Stickers for swamping us with other "unwanted" images? But not complain about a Coca Cola billboard only because you find it appealing??

    I think the mural painted on the public restrooms on Dixon Street are an eyesore but I wouldnt go as far to make a complaint. Just because I dont like something doesnt mean it isnt good. Maybe you should be of that opinion also.

    i also happen to notice that this guy as much of a great artist he might be also degrades himself by associating with the "mankey chop gallery" which has done no real greatness within the wellington art scene but create an increase in mindless vandalistic behaviour among the individuals that make up these so called "graffiti crews" SATG PIRATES BMD and then supports there work in a gallery format to create a visard in which claims these guys are genuine artists, it is surprising from my point of view and others in the community that this gallery and the vandals supported by it are still being given legal canvases around the city in which they have vandalised, seems they are all defeating the purpose of what they are even trying to achieve, where is the mediation between there legal or illegal street art or graffiti, how are they given so much praise for there legal works after causing so many thousands of dollars worth of damage with there illegal works? i just cant draw the line with these guys there artwork is like a mental health patient ( unsure what the hell its up to and finding it difficult to determine reality from pretend)

  6. and so it does continue ……

    I personally don't agree with John Key and the policies that the National party stand for, yet they are in a position to govern the land we all live in. I really hope they can make New Zealand a more healthier and culturally enriched place in which to dwell but in my personal opinion (and so many others) I do not think they will.

    Unfortunately in life Josie, we can not control everything and different people will always disagree because they have opposing opinions. The world just simply isn't perfect (much like your grammar and basic spelling).

    Graffiti is a chaotic burst of energy and colour, which is why you can't decipher who what and why my dear Josie. Graffiti IS life in the city, it breathes grows and constantly changes and I love seeing the voices of our youth alive in our city.Yes it may be unsightly and destructive but so many facets of life that man touches is destructive on so many levels. Factory farming, deep sea bottom trawling, dairy farming, mining etc the list goes on. You know that there are greater sins that man causes but at least graffiti is just a frivolous, petty destruction to only manmade objects and not the natural environment. Yes it costs money to clean up but isn't money the greatest evil of all? The person who cleans up the graffiti wouldn't have a job if it wasn't for these kids. So maybe they're actually aiding this limping economy? Leave the kids alone Josie and tackle more higher problems with your negative criticism.
