Guy Paints Utility Boxes In New Zealand And They Look Really Amazing

These utility boxes got an awesome makeover from this artist!

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.

He shared:

“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!
