About

Metalbird is the brainchild of Phil Walters, an industrial designer and lover of birds and street art.

His beautifully designed artworks bring together his passions: the tough, 4mm mild steel combined with great design, as a nod to his urban art roots. The life-like birds are inspired by the mysterious, satirical street artist Banksy – the birds look as if street art has turned into real life.

Metalbird started as a guerrilla street art project in 2009. All over New Zealand’s North Island, more than 40 life-sized, Metalbirds appeared. In parks, in fences and on power poles – anywhere you’d least expect. People loved them and wanted to know where they could some for themselves. The business was born.

ADD A METALBIRD TO YOUR OWN LANDSCAPE – OR GIVE IT AS A GIFT

Hammered into trees, fences or posts, the birds will form a layer of rust, their natural patina blending into the landscape.

Choose the Metalbird to fit your environment, or give one as a gift: robin, kingfisher, barn owl, blackbird, blue tit, puffin, red kite, wren, or New Zealand’s humble fantail.
