Self-taught pop artist Xoe Hall has been revamping bus stops as part of a street art project supported by Wellington Council. Once bleak and degraded bus stops are now being transformed with bright colourful murals. The first was a bus stop in Aro Valley in 2011 (top image), and in recent months another has been completed in Newtown (bottom image). The striking pink bus stop reflects elements of the character of the local area, the city, and Hall’s own life, including music, art, and a sister with green hair.
