Documentary: Dregs – A new Zealand Street Art Documentary

We just watched this documentary called ‘Dregs‘. A great insight into New Zealand’s street art scene. A really great exposure of some talented people we often don’t get to see much due to the invisible divide between our two countries.

NZ has a collection of some of the best street and graffiti artists in the world. It’s time we started to recognize them…

We highly recommend grabbing a copy of the DVD while it lasts. A true collectors item. Find out more here.

Each artist completed a large scale piece, that formed one side of a cube, which consumed the majority of the space. These individually highlighted each artists’ distinctive creative energy and insanely talented styles. Smaller works adorned the walls with vibrancy and colour at every turn.
