Palmerston North is a city that truly embraces and celebrates the arts on the regular. And local BurgerFuel franchisee, Ryan, saw an opportunity to enhance a recently rundown alleyway beside the store that had recently been given some council love, thanks to the new street art festival, Street Prints Papaioea. He had a wall that was calling out for a spray of purple.
Artists, @haser_nz and @swiftmantis jumped at the opportunity to collab and get it done. With Haser working abroad, he sketched up a killer design incorporating a renowned local icon and something very close to Ryan’s heart, his ’71 BurgerFuel Valiant Charger. He also utilised a strip of adjacent wall to squeeze in the Palmerston North Clock Tower, for good measure. Nice.
