Dawson Road Mural Project

Our final design…

Posted in Uncategorized by PIMPI on November 8, 2009

The final design was developed in-house at Fresh Gallery Otara by Nicole Lim and Ema Tavola. It responds to the video interviews with the Park and Library users made in August 2009.

Youth culture, bold vibrant colours, Pacific and Maori patterns, strong local features and an homage to Michael Jackson were dominant themes.
