A collection of stories about people who like to paint walls
If These Walls Could Talk (ITWCT) is a collection of mini-documentaries that tell the story of people who like to paint walls.
The series explores the striking work and creative worlds of artists Askew One, Benjamin Work, BMD, Elliot Francis Stewart and Mica Still. It takes a close look at the practice of some of the artists from Aotearoa’s street art and graffiti community. The series explores what compels these artists to paint outside, what drives them artistically, and how they navigate identity, community, ownership and the creative process.
ITWCT seeks to build understanding about the roles artists working in this field can play in contributing to our built environments, how they spark conversation and bring life and energy to urban spaces, and how they successfully operate within the dynamic framework presented by the street.
ITWCT was funded through the Digital Media Fund Ignite. The series reveals an aspect of the local art scene that is rarely covered by mainstream media and shines a light on some of the most prominent creative artists of this time.
