the large scale calligraffiti mural honours Spanish-heritage victim Christian Carazo Chandler, son of restaurateur Pedro Carazo. the mural is on the back of New Regent Street on Gloucester St, and the poem 'El Tiempo' is by Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936). both the Spanish architectural design in New Regent Street and the Spanish poem have inspired the calligraffiti style mural, likely the first of its kind in Christchurch. wongi created the 'calligraffiti' font within his mural design, which is a combination of calligraphy and graffiti. there is a translation to English on the mural wall.
This traditional graffiti piece on canvas was the first to sell on the opening night of Christchurch's first solo graffiti art exhibition 'the Graffiti 'Freak' Show'.
