Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Oi You! is an interactive arts event where artists from local colleges and the wider community are invited to design their own urban art panel, the best of which will be created and exhibited in a playfully distorted streetscape at Founders Park. This will also include imagery of classic urban art, video footage of urban art in action, and a Scrawl Wall for visitors to have a go themselves.

Urban art’s popularity has exploded over the past few years; 2008 saw six fifteen metre high works placed on the riverside facade of London’s Tate Modern, last year saw over 300,000 visitors queue for a minimum of two and a half hours to see Banksy’s landmark show at the Bristol Museum. Here in Nelson, urban art features heavily in our college art and design rooms but before now, has not had a public platform.

Oi You! will conclude with an auction of the works exhibited on site at Founders Heritage Park on Saturday 23 October. Come down from 6:30pm to choose your favourite and from 7:15pm start bidding. Remember, there are no prizes for second in the auction!

If you’re interested in participating or simply want to find out more visit www.streetart.co.nz. Presented by Street Art NZ, conceived and produced by George Shaw, Nic Foster and Shannon Webster.
