Yeahhh Crayfish!!!

Stoked to have finished the 4th mural of the 'New Zealand's Worth Loving' pollution awareness mural tour. The mural is based on a Crayfish and has a jubilee clip and nova coil belly, bringing to attention that we must think about what we are putting down our drains as well as the rubbish on our beached. Join us on Friday the 21st of April at the Mural at 11am for a beach clean up, with Keep New Zealand Beautiful.

'Clampfish' took 9 days to complete, dodging the insane weather we had. Thankyou Takapuna for having us and all the amazing comments and support from the local community.

A special shout out to Terrance Harpur at Auckland Live, Peter Graham at Bruce Mason Centre, Terry Holt from Takapuna Beach Business Association, Gary Richardson and Brent from Hirepool, Ross French the amazing filmaker, Jo Powell from Keep New Zealand Beautiful, Noël Jhinku from Our Seas Our Future, Alan Wild from Super Print, Jim and Sandy Auckland at Takapuna Art Supplies and Greg Scadden at Wilsons Carpark, you are all amazing! Thankyou

Thats right humans, 35 hours drawing sped up to 20 seconds. Meet Charlie the tahr, my latest drawing. I know the tahr are a pest and threat here in New Zealand because of the destruction they cause to our native plants but this is a light hearted piece, regardless of their label I can’t help marvel at their beauty. Imagine busting around the Southern Alps on the back of one of these!

Massive thankyou to the Queenstown Arts Centre for having me as an artist in residence, I will miss you!!

Meet the unreal snow artist Simon Beck

With Christmas looming around the corner I thought it necessary to post about art within the theme.

Introducing the work of British born artist Simon Beck. Thinking out side of the box Beck uses the snow as his canvas and his raquettes (snowshoes) as his brush.

Beck spends hours creating the most intricate large scale snow patterns that I think are super inspiring! I can understand the fragilitly he must deal with during the process, unpredictable weather would no doubt make for restricted time frames.

And then within a day or two the artwork ceasing to exist, at least he has captured them through photography.

I am super excited to announce the third mural of the New Zealand's Worth Loving tour is finished!

'Unsealed' took all the strength I have to complete. 12 days in total with 3 days off in between to let my arms recover. I am so grateful to the owner of 307 Durham Street North, Malcolm Ellis, Bernice and Murray Ireland and the tenants for supporting the project.

THANKYOU SO MUCH for all of the other amazing people involved especially Jo Mair and Brindi Joy and the Christchurch City Council. Ross French the filmaker/photographer. My fantastic parents for feeding us and putting a roof over our heads. Norm from Hirepool, Microfilm Digital Print, Tara Daellenbach, Sally Airey and Rachael Welfare, Gap Filler, Kathryn Bates, Avon Otakaro Network, Festa, Jess Halliday, Sue Wademan, Celia Sheerin, Chris Noel and last but certainly not least the gesso release team!

I hope that as well as brightening up another grey area in Christchurch during the rejuvenation period, people will think twice before littering and consider how harmful just a small action like that can harm our beautiful wildlife, like the NZ fur seal. Animals have no say but we do.

I would love to introduce you to Ben Sarten adventurer, photographer and film maker extraordinaire. I meet Ben in October of last year in Queenstown during the 'Drainbow Trout' mural. I was very impressed by his work and to be included in his documentaries series "Your Stories" . Ben explained to me the that purpose of this project is to inspire viewers. To help passionate people by sharing their story, ideas and messages and show people what is possible with hard work.

"I wish to create a series of short films telling stories of passionate people doing inspiring things. These could be about anyone including creative people, sustainable/green businesses, athletes, musicians charities, helpful members of the community, conservationists or anyone who is incredibly passionate. The series will consist of short films that are free for everyone to access. They will be shared on Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook and many other social media platforms.
These are not standard documentaries filled with facts, they are about the love and passion that people have for what they do. I believe if I can show a person’s passion, then it is more likely to connect with the viewer emotionally. In my opinion, an emotional connection to a story, idea or person is more likely to inspire change than a standard documentary." Ben Sarten.

Ben's aim in throughout this project is to grow his reach and video skills and connect with like minded people.

To view some of his doco's directly go to his Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRSdtUdEu8_NTTbG_v-Ebwg or go to www.bensartenimagery.com
