Maori Art in the Outreaches
The tiny East Cape Maori settlement of Ruatoria may be one of the most remote and isolated communities in New Zealand but it doesn't want for bright street art. I particularly loved the paintings on this backstreet building. It was one of several that were emblazoned with colour and creativity. I very much like that in any community. It's a shame it isn't allowed to happen more often in some places.
