For more than two decades, volunteers armed with paintbrushes have helped transform Brisbane’s busy streets into colourful public galleries — one intersection at a time. Turning the city’s traffic signal boxes into canvases began as an anti-graffiti initiative in 1999.Since then, more than 1,200 traffic signal boxes have been painted by 5,000 volunteers.
