Central City - Auckland

Central City - Auckland

"Central City - Auckland"

I am trying to make a point of taking a few photos every day, so I am going to take photos of things I think are interesting around the central city in Auckland when I am there. Including works of art like the statures that are around the city.

Commerce St Mural
Commerce St Mural
This was painted on the wall inside a building on Commerce Street that is being renovated at the moment. It is open to the public because there is a café in part of the building that is still operating they have extended their seating into this part of the building.

This is the latest mural on the building site wall opposite the central city public library. It currently covers the mural painted for the Maori New Year from last year.

Cytoplasm
Cytoplasm
This sculpture is called Cytoplasm and is by Phil Price. It moves in the wind, so I've included a video of it moving as well as the photos as the video gives a better idea of what it's supposed to look like.

Building Site Mural
Building Site Mural
This is outside of the building sites currently in the Wyndham Quarter and is next to the ASB Waterfront Theater.

Long Modified Bench Waitemata
Long Modified Bench Waitemata
This is called "Long Modified Bench Waitemata" and is by Jeppe Hein, currently it's next to the marina in the Wynyard Quarter. Recently, (about one to years ago I can't remember exactly), it was in the sculpture terrace on the top floor of the Auckland Art Gallery. Today was actually the first day I've seen it in its current position without anyone sitting on it!

Library Seat
This is the new sculpture across the road from the Auckland Art Gallery. It is the first one I've seen that has actually had any indication who made it and when it's by Paul Oibble in 2016.
