Rising Tide mural is on the Sampan House Restaurant building on Gloucester Street (facing Manchester Street). The excerpt in the mural is from the Rising Tide book – part of a series of books written in response to the Christchurch earthquakes. The mural is by artist Richard “Pops” Baker.
I’ve never seen these ducks before, but then I don’t have a lot of reason to go down Southwark street, so I have no idea how long they’ve been there, or why they are there. They are an interesting curiosity to me!
Update, I’ve since learned the artwork is by Richard ‘Popx Art’ Baker
