Utility boxes aren’t much to look at. They are a necessary evil of…oh heck, I have no clue what purpose they serve. Anywho, Chorus (a company that operates New Zealand’s phone network) called upon artist Paul Walsh to beautify their DSL Cabinets in Auckland. Without any actual compensation to offer, Walsh launched a PledgeMe campaign to fund his effort to cover them in graffiti. He quickly exceeded the original $350 goal and managed to raise $1,300, giving him plenty of time to take off from the 9-5 and turn the normally big, green boxes that sit in public areas into eye-catching works of art. So far, the artist has spray painted five of the utility boxes with each one taking anywhere from two to five hours to complete.
