Random Auckland Photo

Graffiti art spotted on Ponsonby Road.



Perhaps I shouldn't be amused, but it's so much better than the illegible scrawls one usually sees.

That's the work of Sparrow Phillips.

It's all over for him, though - Metro have named him Best Graffiti Artist in their Best of Auckland issue, likening him to Banksie. Oh dear.

I walked past in again yesterday, only to see that some loutish swine has tagged right across the top of Mr Phillip's work. Grrr.

That's damn fine art - thanks for posting it - I grew up in Auckland; it's cool to be given a local's insight.

Thanks Backin15; I shall keep my eyes peeled for more local treasure!
