35 Nikau Crescent, Mount Maunganui 3116, New Zealand

Created for the 2020 Street Prints Mauau Festival

This piece is huge but tucked away between two buildings, very easy to miss. Too good not to mark for others to find. If you are looking at the impressive mural by Insane51 turn around and you might be able to see this goddess poking her head over the top of the opposite building.

Creative BOP caught up with the artist in this interview from 2020....

  1. Tell us about your mural.

The inspiration is the theme of the mural festival: although small, it is precious. A lot of nature inspired themes; bugs, florals, stuff like that.

2. Why do you think it’s important to have art in public places?

I think it’s important so it’s easily accessible for everybody; so people aren’t intimidated to walk inside of a gallery or a museum. Everybody can see it without having to do all of that.
