Billy Apple’s billboard roadshow arrived in Wellington with a launch at the City Gallery a couple of days ago. So now the Lush boards are to be on display in the Capital, here’s a question. How do you think Billy would respond to an attack by graffiti artists - Appleplexy? Or maybe like super-cool Japanese artist Murakami. When graffiti was sprawled across one of his giant LA billboards recently, Murakami asked for the billboard be taken down… and sent to his studio in Japan to become part of his art collection! He thought the changes made to the billboard were “So wonderful.”
