New Zealand Artist Creates Eye-Catching Public Art On Auckland’s Utility Boxes

1/10 OPEN GALLERY

Last year, Paul Walsh, an artist and web designer in Auckland, New Zealand, convinced the local telephone authority to let him decorate their utility boxes around town. They didn't pay him for his work — he fundraised online to pay for his supplies and time — but they also more-or-less gave him carte blanche on his subject matter. The result is a colourful array of boxes featuring everything from a cat in sunglasses to a sloth in an astronaut suit. Back in 2011, students at Vancouver's Emily Carr University embarked on a similar project, wrapping the electrical boxes along Granville Street with vinyl sheets covered in their artwork (the vinyl also helps curb graffiti). Check out images from both projects in the gallery above.
