Presenting an all-star line up from Christchurch's graffiti scene - Wongi 'Freak' Wilson, Nick 'Ikarus' Tam, and Jacob 'Yikes' Ryan are Christchurch members of the DTR Crew. Together they are teaming up to create a vibrant, collaborative new mural on the Embassy building at 451 Colombo St.
The DTR crew are well established artists, having pioneered the street art scene in Christchurch, maintaining a strong presence via murals and pieces all over the city. Wongi and Ikarus were local headline acts in the Rise Street Art exhibition at Canterbury Museum, and Yikes' work has been seen across the city.
With a diverse range of skills between the three artists ranging from traditional graffiti styles, photorealism, psychedelic funk and everything in between, the artists will be playing off each other to create an exciting new large-impact piece. This mural promises to be one to watch out for!
Fresh from painting up an entire house in Saint Albans, the DTR crew are ready to inject their particular brand of colour and impact into Sydenham. They will be starting production of the piece a week before our event kicks off, and placing the finishing touches on the night. Pop on by in the lead up to October 2 to catch the process and chat to the artists about their work.
