New Zealand's Utility Boxes Get Dolled Up

New Zealand's Utility Boxes Get Dolled Up

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.
