We don’t want you to drop your mobile, you need it for bus timetables and such! So we are hooking some of you up with a pop socket / phone grip at our upcoming events.
We have teamed up with local artist and Honours student at Wintec, Ahsin Ahsin, photographing his murals around Hamilton and placing the artwork onto pop sockets / phone grips. We’re dishing these out at the upcoming Wintec and University of Waikato Orientation weeks so hit us up for one when you see us!
TAKE THE 8 FRANKTON BUS TO SEE THE KENT STREET MURAL - https://www.busit.co.nz/hamilton-buses/frankton/
Ahsin Ahsin. Kent Street, Frankton.
"This is the biggest wall I've ever painted and actually the biggest painting I've done to date so I was pretty stoked on my efforts blasting this wall out. It had lots of textures and rough surfaces which I use in my own studio work so there was that familiarity but on an entirely larger scale.
This piece to me, is paying homage to the infamous S that you might recognise, back in your youth scribbling away in the old 1B5 exercise books. There's no real evidence where/when it came from and it's still a mystery kinda like UFO's & the Bermuda Triangle all that buzzy stuff but it's been around longer than I have.
I added some characters to the windows; a dinosaur waving, robot samurai, dancing monster and the #chea dino rocking a shaka. These are recurring figures in my studio work they're just fun characters I like to draw. They are neither good or bad they are just them just like you are you and I am me."
