Untitled by Dan Mills, 2021

This street art was part of the 2021 Whanganui Walls event and was painted by Dan Mills. Read his artist statement:

"The images are evocative of playfulness and the wisdom of children. My own daughters influence so much of my own work that we discuss my projects together now. At home, we have shoes and phones off policy, better to build forts, climb trees and ride bikes, which fits in well with the bike shop. The typewriters are references to the analogue environment. The rising tides lift all boats was a phrase that represented positive change, that phrase now has a more sinister meaning with the advance of climate change and rising seas." - Dan Mills
