An ambitious and exciting project to add colour, interest, surprise and provide a sense of safety by lightening and brightening walls around the town, whilst educating the community and engaging students through portrayed stories. A wonderful celebration of our culturally rich region. 

Sean Duffell is a full-time Wellington based Graphic Artist, known for his large abstract murals inspired by NZ flora, fauna, insects and reptiles. He predominantly paints commissioned large-scale walls in public and private spaces. Sean says, “I believe originality in ones work is paramount as an artist and art in public spaces should ultimately aim to empower the surrounding community. My hope is that my work will add a sense of vibrancy and contribute culturally to the areas that I am painting in, and that the members of these communities will take ownership and pride in the murals.”

Sean has exhibited extensively in New Zealand, with a vast array of New Zealand artists.
