Even the stairwells of Canterbury Museum are getting the star treatment as it plays host to this year's RISE street art festival.

Internationally acclaimed Auckland graffiti artist Bobby Hung, aka Berst, spent much of the weekend painting this work in the museum's main exhibition hall - one of many murals to be created in its galleries.

The Oi YOU! Collection, featuring all of its Banksy works and memorabilia, is also on display at the museum, while several huge graffiti artworks have been created on Christchurch walls.

The RISE festival runs until next month.
