Our fourth project, "El Tiempo" was located at 157a Glouceter street, on the Moko Cafe wall.  Lines from the poem "Meditacion primera (y ultima)" by Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca were painted by Ōtautahi artist Wongi Wilson in "calligraffiti" style.  The floral designs were inspired by the tiles found just around the corner in Christchurch's famous New Regent Street.  "El Tiempo" eventually disappeared behind another building, to officially become another of the city's "ghost poems".
 
Many thanks to artist Wongi (http://www.wongi.co.nz/) and Emma, Resene Paints, Access Solutions for providing the use and installation of the scaffolding and the team at Life in Vacant Spaces.
