Looking for the best Wellington street art? I hope this post will be able to point you in most of the right directions.

Why hope?

  • What I think is the best piece of street art probably differs to you (the David Bowie piece is very polarising for example).
  • The street art in Wellington does change so I will try remove/add pieces from the map and post as relevant. I can’t guarantee that it’ll be up to date all the time (a.k.a. let me know if something has changed).

Anyway, let’s get straight into the post below. There’s a map of them immediately below, with a larger photo of each piece further down.


In the map below, when you click on a pin, you’ll see a brief preview of the piece.



Below each photo, I’ll put the address (or the most appropriate address) and where possible the attribution (I need to revisit places to see if I missed the signature on some) to the artist of each piece. I won’t bother trying to name the pieces because that’ll open a can of worms I’d rather not worry with!
