From the maker Phil Walters:
"Metalbird started as a New Zealand based guerrilla street art project in 2009. Inspired by stencil artist Banksy, I designed, crafted and hammered up dozens of life-sized, Metalbird stencils for no other reason than to surprise, delight and intrigue. In parks, in fences and on power poles… anywhere I thought I wouldn’t get arrested installing them. To my delight, people loved them. Before long, the art project had turned into a side hustle, then a full time job, and finally with a small team we set ourselves the lofty goal of becoming “the Largest Art Installation Project in the World”.
Today these beautifully crafted, iconic, life-like bird silhouettes have been hammered into backyards, decks and gardens throughout New Zealand, Australia, the UK and Europe and finally we’ve arrived with a North American range. With the tap of a hammer a Metalbird will transform your environment into a work of art and surprise and delight visitors for years to come.
We love what we do, we hope it shows. Welcome to the project"
