World-renowned street artist ROA has completed his large painting of a moa on the side of the Canterbury Museum in Christchurch.

The big black and white artwork on the northern wall of the museum was finished this week by the Belgian artist, who is known for his large pictures of animals.

ROA is one of about a dozen artists who have been commissioned to create works as part of the Rise street art festival.

The festival also features an exhibition at the Canterbury Museum of international and Kiwi street artists, work by British street artist Banksy and new work by Australian artist Ian Strange.

The exhibition has already proved to be one of the most popular in the museum's history.
