Mural’s around Nelson CDB

We had a look at some of the current murals that are around the center of town.


‘Chris Finlayson reflected the giant palms in the
1903 Square when he painted Nature Outgrows
the Urban Jungle 8 in 2010. It creates a lush
looking oasis in this inner city site.’ retrieved 2/3/14

A group member suggested creating a mural on a mural..


‘Painted in 1995 by Finnish Artist Sirpa Alalaakkola,
Modiglianis Trout 10 is in the style of famous
Italian artist Modigliani, known for his use of
mask-like faces and elongated forms. It was
commissioned by the Youth Hostel Association for
their building and features a humorous take on an
iconic New Zealand outdoors scene.’ retrieved 2/3/14




These murals by Belgian street artist ROA are my favorites they are bold and bright. I love the detail.. they are the kind of mural that will be a landmark, something that will stay in tourists memory’s and remind them of Nelson. For locals they brighten up their commute and city. retrieved  2/3/14
