Wongi and Ikarus - Street Art
268 High Street, Central City
The public’s preferred choice for Christchurch’s newest piece of street art is a design featuring a kōwhai tree and an inquisitive silver eye. The design by local artist Brandon Warrell was one of three the public were asked to vote on as part of an Council initiative to create a new mural on the wall of the Ibis Hotel in Hereford Street.
The design I have created shows the beauty of NZ’s flora and fauna with the Kowhai and Silvereye as the main elements of the mural. I see a dynamic future for Christchurch as this beauty is rising from the rubble of the fallen city in the hope to bring inspiration to the people of Christchurch. The intention is to acknowledge the great loss but to look forward to the future and the magnificent new life as the city continues to rebuild - Brandon Warrell
