Artists I’m Diggin: Dregs – New Zealand Street Art Documentary

Its such a great feeling stumbling upon underground stories of creatives and communities driving vibrant culture across the globe in places I’ve never visited. In search of late night creative inspiration, I came across ‘Dregs’ a very cool documentary released in 2012 that showcases New Zealand’s incredible and prolific underground art movement. Dregs is the culmination of filmmaker Karl Sheridan and renowned street artist Cinzah Merkens. The documentary features candid interviews with New Zealand’s most celebrated street artists such as Askew, Component, Flox, Gasp, Ghostie , Wert 159, Yelz and Cinzah. Beautifully shot, Dregs truly illustrates how New Zealand’s vibrant underground culture emerged into legitimate art scene in the Southwest Pacific and abroad.

Hand-numbered and limited to 500 copies in the first edition, this DVD will certainly be a collectors item. The DVD packaging is printed on recycled craft card, and signed by both directors and producers of the film.
