East of Cuba’s street art mural unveiling – positively combating Wellington’s graffiti (2011)
East of Cuba, Welington’s new fashion art and retail gallery, is to unveil an extrior art mural on Sunday 19 June as part of the Winter Solstice celebrations.
“The Elements” – a three-wall exterior street art mural in East of Cuba’s (EoC’s) rear car park/courtyard, was born from the combined desire to rid the area of its disharmonic dark-themed graffiti and spray-can vandalism. This project has been a community support-based collaboration between East of Cuba owner Sara Byrne and Wellington Artist and Professional Street Muralist Dhyana Beaumont.
East of Cuba (EoC) fully supports WCC’s drive to increase Wellington Street Art in and around the city as a positive initiative to combat graffiti plagued areas. It’s an amazing opportunity for Wellington to support emerging talented artists and encourages the spirit that art can be accessible for everyone’s pleasure and enjoyment.
