Napier’s amazing murals

I had the coolest time today, twirling in circles following my map, checking out 29 new murals painted on entire building walls in Napier by New Zealand and international artists in March 2016 as part of the PangaSeed Festival.

They depict the precarious relationship between the ocean and the sealife that live in it. They’re brilliant and well worth downloading the map to take yourself on a tour for a few selfies!

I think I was most impressed with this one. Note the cigarette butt the fish has swallowed.
