NBOAF originally formed with the goal of bringing vibrancy and inspiration to vacant and derelict sites in New Brighton, Christchurch.
We started with painting two 40' shipping containers on an empty site and have evolved to producing multiple outdoor art works around New Brighton.
Our goal is to expand into the greater Christchurch and Canterbury regions and, if the opportunity is right, nation wide!
Alongside our design and installation service for murals, we also offer interactive painting experiences.
