A large graffiti-style fish and chips design has been painted on to a Palmerston fish and chip shop's exterior wall. Christchurch graffiti artist Nick ''Icarus'' Tam is working his way around the South Island doing graffiti art on request in various towns.
''Graffiti with a fish'' had been ordered by Palmerston fish and chip shop owner Chris Arbuckle. Mr Arbuckle said graffiti was another way of drawing the attention of passing traffic to the fish and chip shop.
Mr Tam said he painted quality graffiti in Christchurch under contract to building owners. The Christchurch buildings had usually been targeted by taggers and graffiti artists and cleaned up several times before he was called in to paint his graffiti. His work ''usually'' deterred further tags or graffiti.
