Dawson Road Mural Project

Finished Mural

Posted in Uncategorized by Ema on November 8, 2009

WALL 1: Acknowledging the location of Dawson Park, in the flight path of Auckland International Aiport and the classic limited edition ‘Otara’ Chuck Taylor Converse All Stars made in 2005.

WALL 2: Acknowledging the 2009 passing of Michael Jackson, the undisputed King of Pop, a model of creative and musical excellence with intergenerational, global and multicultural appeal, embedded in an arrangement of Pacific island flora.

WALL 3: Acknowledges the locality of the site on Dawson Road and the youthful local community. The figures are derived from a photographic project that took place at the ASB Polyfest called South Style documenting the style and conviction of south Auckland young people.
