The artist behind a controversial street art mural of English singer Ed Sheeran is surprised by the criticism his work has received.

Tyler Kennedy Stent was commissioned by Enterprise Dunedin - the marketing arm of Dunedin City Council - to paint the giant watercolour image.

But the $8350 project attracted criticism from residents and other groups as a waste of ratepayers' money, with the Taxpayers' Union saying it reflected "a culture of waste" at the city council.

Stent said the negativity upset him "a little bit", and feels that critics are missing the point.

"Just because it's Ed Sheeran doesn't mean that it's not art, and that everyone can appreciate it", he says.

"That's the beauty of street art. Everybody who walks by can enjoy the fact that this street is now colourful, and there's a bit of character to it."

Dunedin's mural of Ed Sheeran has been vandalised in a graffiti attack.

The words 'Coyote F... U ' was scrawled in green paint at the bottom of the 4m high mural of the British pop singer.

Tyler Kennedy-Stent, who painted the mural, was at the Bath St site on Wednesday and told Stuff the graffiti was "not what you want to hear when you wake up".

he painted ed sheeran because he was commissioned to do so by enterprise dunedin - the marketing arm of dunedin city council

the real question imo is why a city in new zealand paid $8350 for an ed sheeran mural
