A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

Butterfly Fence Now (Mostly) Completed

A collage of images from the butterfly fence (and the butterfly mailbox which I rather like). The fence is at the top end of Ferry Road – just before the roundabout that takes you to Lyttelton.

A sign has recently gone up on the fence advertising Butterfly Therapeutic Body & Foot Massage – which is located there.

I’m not sure who the graffiti artist was who finished the fence – I saw him working on it after he had offered to help out. He’s done a great job adding some wonderful embellishments to the fence – it’s so cheerful and colourful.

POSTSCRIPT: since publishing the post on Facebook I’ve now learned that the fence still has a little bit of work left to be done on it. The artist is Richard ‘Popx Art’ Baker

“The like to think of my work as that of the ‘social aRtivist’ rather than the graffiti artist. You know it says LOVE… right? The Chch is inside the long yellow ‘O’ etc”.
