You’ve passed by utility boxes that house your local internet provider cables. They’re not a pretty sight because some have boring colors and others are rusting, especially because they’re exposed to both the scorching sun and the rain.
A local artist in Auckland, New Zealand named Paul Walsh has been going around and painting utility boxes in the city for a couple of years now. His masterpieces are cool, modern and amazing.
It all started when he painted a wall in a local dog park. It got painted out and the residents were upset. In fact, they petitioned the council, Walsh told Bored Panda.
Now his work got into a local newspaper and he later received an offer from Chorus, a company that owns the utility boxes in the city, to paint these boxes all over the city.
“I get paid a small fee for each one – enough to cover time and materials. Also, I use Internet memes as the inspiration for a lot of them.”
Here are some of his superb masterpieces!
