Under the directorship of Richard "Popx Art" Baker, a new bubble wall is emerging on the exposed Funky Pumpkin wall in New Brighton. Popx is working alongside youth to create meaningful bubbles, plus anyone else is invited to add their own bubble. Brighton is becoming an artistic wonderland :)

Three years on from the quakes, and buildings in Brighton continue to be demolished due to structural damage, taking with them some wonderful artwork. The demolition of one wall however, often exposes yet another wall waiting for an enthusiastic new artist to come along and weave their magic :)

Mural Madness was always about beautifying naked spaces in Brighton, and being temporary by nature. Earthquake recovery. As buildings came down, exposed walls were beautified with amazing artworks by talented artists. A second phase has now begun. More buildings are being demolished, taking their artworks with them. Sad, but exciting, as it means progress for Brighton. The good news is that new murals continue to appear, and artists continue to offer their talents. The evolution of Mural Madness continues!

Richard 'Popx' Baker is a local Christchurch artists who has contributed to many of the murals in and around Brighton, and Christchurch, and continues to do so. He is often found adding finishing touches to walls that have been collaborated on by many artists. Framing large murals in the form of the word LOVE is a favourite. Popx loves to chat with the local passersby, and is a fantastic role-model for youth. Thanks Popx for all your continued support!
